Toshiba’s Aplio Ultrasound Named Best in KLAS

Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s Aplio™ 500 received top ranking in the Ultrasound – General Imaging category in the 2013 Best in KLAS Awards: Medical Equipment & Infrastructure.

“We’re seeing real movement in the market,” said Kent Gale, KLAS founder and VP of medical imaging and equipment. “It’s a strong indicator of the increasing competitiveness of the vendors as they strive to improve their offerings.”

The Aplio 500 offers advanced visualisation features, including Fly Thru and Smart Fusion. An industry-first technology, Fly Thru uses 4D ultrasound to “fly through” interiors of fluid-filled ducts and vessels for better exploration of lesions and masses and to assist in planning interventional procedures. Smart Fusion synchronises CT or MR with ultrasound, helping to locate hard-to-find lesions and aiding in ultrasound-guided biopsies. Aplio 500 comes standard with advanced workflow tools and ergonomics, including the iStyle™+ Productivity Suite.

“With the Aplio 500, we aimed to create an ultrasound system that produced high-quality images, offered new technology and would be reliable for all types of imaging,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “The Best in KLAS award is a result of Toshiba partnering with its customers to provide the technology and support needed to improve efficiency and patient care.”
