Toshiba to unveil Aplio xV at RSNA show

Toshiba America Medical Systems will be debuting the latest member of its Aplio ultrasound imaging family, Aplio xV, at the RSNA conference in Chicago later this month.

The new Aplio xV is designed to deliver expanded visualization through a combination of key features, including optional imaging software packages for radiology and cardiology, Toshiba's iAssist remote technology, and a new flat-screen display with the refresh rate of a CRT monitor, according to the Tustin, CA-based firm.

The company said that Aplio xV features next-generation tissue Doppler and contrast-imaging technology based on its intelligent component architecture (ICA) to allow faster processing of more complex data.

The software package for radiology includes trapezoid imaging, an extended field-of-view mode that produces a trapezoid image from a linear or sector transducer; a differential tissue harmonic imaging (THI) option, a vendor-developed technology that provides increased resolution at depth to assess tumors, lesions, cysts, and normal tissue with maximum penetration; a quick-scan option for one-touch image optimization for greater productivity; and an ApliPure option for real-time spatial and frequency compounding.

The cardiology package includes a tissue Doppler imaging quantification (TDIQ) option to perform various analyses of TDI images, including measuring myocardial viability; a stress-echo imaging option; a quick-scan option; and a harmonic imaging option, Toshiba said.
