Toshiba reveals new 4D volumetric imaging applications

Toshiba America Medical Systems : 28 November, 2007  (New Product)
Toshiba America Medical Systems has revealed its new 4-D volume imaging applications for Toshiba's Aplio and Xario ultrasound systems.
The 4D applications and the latest system - the Xario XG -will be available for viewing at this week’s Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, USA.

'Toshiba's new 4D applications will enable physicians to better perform transvaginal/OB, small parts and abdomen imaging procedures, resulting in less variation in the acquired images, the ability to analyse data after patient discharge, improved productivity and ultimately better diagnosis,' said Gordon Parhar, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. 'Toshiba's new transducers, which are the smallest probes available on the market, will help physicians image small patients, including infants and children.'

In addition, Toshiba's 4D volume imaging data can be easily stored on or off the cart, allowing continued access to patient data to monitor progress.

'Toshiba's new 4D transducers give physicians the ability to review a volumetric image of a patient after they have left the scan room, providing more time for diagnosis and thorough analysis,' said Dr Sara O'Hara, professor of Radiology and director of Ultrasound at Cincinnati Children's Hospital. 'This also is beneficial for patients who need to be monitored because we are now able to compare volume data instead of relying on old notes.'

Toshiba's full line of 4D transducers include:

Microconvex Transducer the first-of-its-kind transducer unique to Toshiba, which can better image the abdomen and be used for guidance in R/F ablations.

Endocavity Transducer provides volume data for transvaginal, OB procedures and prostate imaging.

Linear Transducer used to image small parts of the anatomy, including the testes, thyroid and breasts.

The applications for the Aplio will be transferred to the Xario XG, including the new 4D transducers. The Xario XG will feature a 19-inch monitor and comes standard with a bundled software package consisting of:

- Advanced Dynamic Flow, which accurately displays blood flow with directional information, even for tiny vessels, and improves diagnoses.

- ApliPure, which uses real-time spatial and frequency compounding technology to deliver clearer image quality.

- QuickScan, one touch auto optimization for 2D and Doppler imaging.

- Trapezoid, which provides wide or expanded field of view imaging.
