USC installs three Toshiba ultrasound systems

The University of Southern California’s (USC) Keck Medical Center in Los Angeles has installed two Aplio 500 ultrasound systems and a Viamo ultrasound system from Toshiba America Medical Systems.

USC will use the systems for general exams, including pelvis, liver and abdominal, according to the Tustin, Calif.-based medical systems company.

Aplio 500 includes Toshiba’s Fly Thru technology, which uses 4D ultrasound to “fly through” interiors of ducts and vessels in order to explore lesions and masses, as well as assist in planning interventional procedures.

Viamo is a laptop ultrasound system which has the capabilities of Toshiba’s cart-based systems, according to the company.
