Aintree University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has acquired two Toshiba Aplio XG ultrasound scanners to replace existing equipment in its radiology department, plus a Xario for antenatal scanning.
One of the systems has Toshiba’s contrast imaging package, which has enabled Aintree to develop ultrasound contrast imaging within the department.
These latest systems will provide the department with state-of-the-art equipment for its move in the near future to a new purpose built radiology department. The Aplio XG includes contrast imaging software while the Xario can distinguish minute vascular structures.
