March 29, 2017 — Toshiba Medical recently announced the launch of its new premium Aplio i-series ultrasound platform, designed for fast and reliable musculoskeletal (MSK) diagnoses. The platform expands the utility of ultrasound for MSK imaging with enhanced resolution and penetration, and innovative tools to enhance clinical workflow.  

Offering healthcare providers a more cost-effective, less invasive and safer solution than traditional imaging modalities, the Aplio i-series is a highly advanced and scalable ultrasound solution made up of the Aplio i700, Aplio i800 and Aplio i900. The systems include iPerformance technologies that deliver extreme processing power and allow healthcare providers to see more, according to Toshiba. A new beam-forming technology, iBeam, optimizes efficiency of the beam, increasing penetration for shoulder and deep muscle imaging, while maintaining high spatial and contrast resolution, and at the same time reducing artifacts and clutter. The i800 offers advanced clinical applications and matrix transducers, including an ultra-high frequency transducer (24 MHz) that makes it easier for clinicians to image superficial MSK structures and also expand the utility of diagnostic ultrasound in a variety of clinical situations.

The Aplio i-series’ iSense design provides intuitive ergonomics to boost productivity for both daily routine and complex exams. The systems offer an image-guided user interface, which visually guides the clinician through the exam to simplify system operation and help improve efficiency. To make ultrasound exams faster, the systems feature touch control screens and real-time Quick Scan, which makes automatic image adjustments without pushing a button.

Toshiba Medical is showcasing the Aplio i-series at the 2017 Society of Skeletal Radiology (SSR) 2017 annual meeting, March 19-22 in Santa Barbara, Calif.
