Toshiba gets first Aplio XG Ultrasound install
Toshiba America Medical Systems said that the first install of its new Aplio XG ultrasound system has taken place at Las Vegas-based outpatient imaging practice Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging (SDMI).
SDMI is using the state-of-the-art system to assist with a variety of diagnostic examinations, including abdominal, gynecologic, obstetrical (OB), breast, testicular, thyroid and prostate imaging procedures in its Las Vegas location.
A high-volume clinic, SDMI images approximately 75 patients a week on the newly installed Aplio XG. Since the installation, they report higher image quality, improved patient throughput, enhanced workflow and increased operator comfort with the system.
"With this technology, we are able to detect pathologies that might have gone unnoticed before,” said Mark Winkler, MD, professor of health sciences at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas and founding partner of SDMI. “Specifically high-resolution, high contrast, small parts imaging is enhanced, which is particularly important for breast imaging. Additionally, enhancements in depth penetration allow better quality imaging in larger patients.”
