Toshiba launches ultrasound scanner

Toshiba Medical Systems Europe of Zoetermeer, Netherlands, unveiled a new ultrasound scanner in Europe this week, as well as a new grayscale image processing technology.

The Aplio MX premium ultrasound system shares its core imaging architecture and its transducers with Toshiba's Aplio XG ultrasound system.

Aplio MX also features imaging functions such as differential tissue harmonics, ApliPure+, and Precision Imaging to enhance image clarity for disease management decisions in the shortest possible time.

Toshiba also has introduced its new Acoustic Structure Quantification (ASQ) technology. The clinical application is designed to analyze echo signal data at more than 100 times higher resolution than normal grayscale or color-flow images by using the Toshiba Ultrasound Raw Data Interface hardware extension.

ASQ is available as an option on Toshiba's Aplio XG platform.

The product announcements will come this week at the Ultraschall 2009 annual meeting in Salzburg, Austria.
