The Princess Royal Maternity, Glasgow, has purchased a Toshiba Aplio 400 ultrasound system for obstetric scanning in its antenatal department. Included in the order was the first trophon probe decontamination unit in Scotland. The scanner comes with 4D imaging and a remote viewing station.
Lead sonographer Helen Hughes said: “We selected the Aplio 400 because of its high quality imaging capabilities. In particular we are delighted with the post processing and spot zoom facility that is excellent for optimising NTs. The machine’s ability to produce high resolution imaging, even in the first trimester, has proved to be extremely beneficial and 3D/4D applications will enhance our diagnostic confidence. We are in the process of having our trophon unit validated and look forward to using it in our department in the near future.”
