Toshiba Medical Systems held a training day at Calderdale Royal Hospital for users of its Aplio XG ultrasound system.
Last year, the trust purchased two Aplio XGs, one as a replacement system at the Calderdale and the other for a new service recently opened at Todmorden, a £600K health centre serving residents of Todmorden, the Upper Calder Valley and surrounding areas.
The Aplio XG is Toshiba’s flagship ultrasound system with a host of features to satisfy the most robust imaging requirements.
Ann Hampshaw, advanced practitioner in ultrasound, commented: “We have been really pleased with the image quality.”
Toshiba marketing manager Stuart Mills said: “The aim of the training day was to ensure that users are proficient with all the advanced features, particularly those used in their daily routines.”
