Ultrasound Transducers Improve Diagnosis Accuracy

Three transducers for ultrasound imaging, all from Toshiba, improve the ability for clinicians to accurately diagnose patients.

The new high-frequency, tightly curved transducer, PVT712BT, lets clinicians view the smallest details that are especially important in exams of neonatal heads, pediatric abdomens and thyroids. The multi-use transducer is able to penetrate from the near to far field at very high frequencies, creating exceptionally detailed and high-quality images. It is available on the Aplio XG, Aplio MX, Xario XG and Viamo ultrasound systems.

The new intraoperative transducer, PLT705BTH, is designed for direct organ visualization, particularly the liver, during surgery. The second new intraoperative transducer, PBT745BTB, is tailored for imaging the vascular system. They are both available on the Aplio XG, Aplio MX, Xario XG and Viamo ultrasound systems.
