The Countess of Chester Hospital, Cheshire, has acquired a Toshiba Aplio MX ultrasound scanner for its gynaecology unit to be used as a dedicated scanner for early pregnancy assessment.  


Superintendent sonographer Catalina Macdonald said: “When we evaluated the system it ticked all our boxes for ease of use and image quality.  We particularly like the high frequency abdominal probe, which has enabled as to do fewer transvaginal scans because of the superb image quality we are achieving.”
