image_2017-3_toshiba_medical_aplio_300_platinum_cv_ul__contentimage.jpgHOUMA To enhance technology and treatment capabilities for patients with coronary and peripheral artery diseases, Cardiovascular Institute of the South (CIS) has installed 20 new AplioTM 300 Platinum CV ultrasound systems from Toshiba Medical.  CIS also upgraded 20 existing ultrasounds to Toshiba Medical’s Aplio 300 Platinum platform to ensure consistency and the most accurate cardiac diagnoses for all patients.

“Purchasing ultrasound systems that are extremely easy to use and installing them consistently across all of our facilities was very important to us,” said Jaime Aubin, ultrasound team leader at CIS. “The Aplio 300 Platinum and Aplio 300 Platinum CV ultrasounds offer the best image quality and the cardiac applications needed for our sonographers of all experience levels to easily capture images with little to no pressure to the body, improving patient comfort.  Toshiba Medical has also been an excellent partner in training all of our staff, as well as helping us to create custom reports that fully integrate with our EMR platform.”

“Toshiba Medical puts outstanding customers such as CIS first by customizing technology that meets their needs while also being flexible to a wide range of clinical settings today and in the future,” said Dan Skyba, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. “Our Aplio 300 Platinum CV offers both exceptional image quality and a comprehensive suite of cardiovascular tools in a small, versatile platform, allowing clinicians to easily maneuver between rooms. The system is ideal for busy imaging departments as it comes with automatic workflow tools to help reduce exam times and improve consistency.”
