Demonstrating continued leadership in radiology with development of new technologies for today’s busy imaging departments, Toshiba Medical, a Canon Group company, showcases the AplioTM i600 (pending 510(k) clearance), the newest addition to the premium Aplio i-series ultrasound platform. The Aplio i600 is the entry-level system in the Aplio i-series family and offers enhanced workflow and performance features that help improve diagnostic confidence and enable physicians to deliver safe and fast exams for patients.

The Aplio i600 provides intuitive ergonomics to help boost productivity during daily routine and complex exams with iSense, while iPerformance delivers advanced imaging capabilities and applications that helps health care providers to give more confident diagnoses. The system offers an image-guided user interface, which visually guides the clinician through the exam to simplify system operation and help improve efficiency.
