Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. (TAMS) this week released Version 5.5 software for its Aplio ultrasound system.
TAMS said the upgraded software features the company's differential tissue harmonics imaging (THI) option that offers increased spatial resolution and penetration for border and tissue definition using enhanced transducers. It also features the new quick scan option that streamlines image optimization for increased productivity and reproducible exams with less inter-operator variability.
Aplio is equipped with next-generation tissue Doppler and contrast imaging technology based on Toshiba's intelligent component architecture (ICA) to allow faster processing of more complex data. The ICA permits the system to perform highly complex data operations, such as tissue harmonic imaging and pulse subtraction techniques with frequency compounding, TAMS said.
