Toshiba America Medical Systems
Toshiba America Medical Systems (Booth 3429) is displaying its women’s imaging ultrasound techniques that enable physicians to better evaluate breast lesions and Spatio-Temporal Image Correlation (STIC) technology to assess the fetal heart.
In breast imaging, the company’s MicroPure technology is geared for identifying and eventually characterizing micro-calcifications. The company is highlighting elastography as a works in progress, a technique that detects tumors based on their stiffness compared to normal tissue.
STIC is a gating technique used to assess the fetal heart. Data are acquired via an automatic volume acquisition that captures a number of 2D frames in a volume set, with the resulting volume image displaying a loop of the beating fetal heart. Because there is 3D information behind each frame, scan planes can be moved, rotated and manipulated.
