A recent purchase by University Hospital, Coventry, of three Toshiba Aplio XG scanners brings the total number of Toshiba systems in the maternity department to seven.
Lead midwife sonographer Cheryl Walsh explained: “It was necessary to replace three inferior systems.”
The Aplio XG features a high frequency transducer of up to 18 MHz, real-time Doppler Auto-trace with live value display, and Micropure and Elastography for enhanced breast imaging, including microcalcification detection. There is also a facility for USB downloads.
