Pacific Vascular Adds 36 Toshiba Aplio 300 Ultrasounds
WASHINGTON --(Business Wire)--
Pacific Vascular, Inc. is providing its patients with the latest in
ultrasound technology by acquiring 36 AplioTM 300 ultrasound
systems from Toshiba (News - Alert) America Medical Systems, Inc. Across 12 facilities
in Washington, Toshiba recently completed extensive training with
Pacific Vascular staff and customized multiple protocols and
measurements for their vascular imaging needs.
"We were in the process of going completely digital and wanted to
upgrade our ultrasound systems with a single platform," said Bonnie
Brown, technical director, Pacific Vascular. "After reviewing several
other ultrasound systems on the market, we knew the Aplio 300 was the
right choice, because it's easy to use and produces excellent vascular
image quality. Toshiba's partnership approach also gave us the service,
support and training we needed to be up and running right away."
The Aplio 300 offers exceptional industry-leading depth and detail in a
smaller, versatile platform for all routine cardiovascular ultrasound
exams. It comes standard with advanced workflow tools and ergonomics,
including the iStyleTM+ Productivity Suite, enabling
efficient and precise exams.
"Hospitals and imaging centers are looking for more than just advanced
imaging technology as they navigate through health reform," said
Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. "They
need a long-term partner offering customized training, education and
service to give them a worry-free experience so they can focus on what
matter most, which is caring for their patients."
Toshiba will showcase the Aplio 300 ultrasound system at this year's
American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in Washington, D.C.,
March 29-April 2, 2014 (Booth #2323).
