Trafford Healthcare Trust in Manchester has purchased three Toshiba Aplio XG ultrasound systems, two for Trafford General Hospital and one for Altrincham General Hospital.
They replace existing scanners and will be used for general radiology including paediatric ultrasound, obstetrics and gynaecology and also musculoskeletal work.
Toshiba’s Precision Imaging technology analyses ultrasonic images on the fly at various orders of spatial resolution to provide greater definition of structure.
