Fairfield General Hospital in Bury, part of the Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, purchased a Toshiba Aplio MX ultrasound scanner because they already have two Toshiba systems in their maternity unit and having a third one enabled them to standardise equipment.
Clinical lead/specialist ultrasonographer Angela Booth says: “We are especially pleased with the gynaecological settings and Precision Imaging, which allows us to visualise tissue in more detail and differentiate tissue changes that may have been more difficult to demonstrate on more conventional image settings.”
The Aplio MX is the last addition to Toshiba’s premium ultrasound product line. It shares its core imaging architecture, together with its transducers, with the Aplio XG and comes complete with a host of advanced imaging functions including Different Tissue Harmonics, ApliPure+ and Precision Imaging.
The system’s comprehensive 3D/4D imaging package, including the newly-introduced third-generation high frequency volume transducer, extends the system’s diagnostic capabilities by providing accurate renderings and arbitrary volume cuts in real-time or offline.
