Toshiba Medical Systems has sold its first portable ultrasound system, the newly-launched Viamo scanner, to London’s Charing Cross Hospital where it will be used for critical care on-ward ultrasound and for interventional procedures.   


Consultant radiologist Dr Adrian Lim described the system as “Overall, a well-designed portable scanner with the touch screen being a revolutionary feature.   Greyscale imaging and Doppler sensitivity are extremely good and nearly equivalent to high-end scanners in the Toshiba portfolio.”


The system combines the portability of a laptop with advanced radiology features.  Developed from a radiology base, it is said to provide the “confidence to image patients at the bedside, something that usually requires larger, more expensive cart-based systems.”
