Physicians now have the powerful imaging technology they need for fast, safe and reliable evaluation of liver lesions with the premium Aplio™ i-series ultrasound platform from Toshiba Medical, a Canon Group company. With the recent expansion of LI-RADS® (Liver Imaging Reporting and Data System) to include contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS)* imaging for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) characterization, the Aplio i-series offers an ideal solution for confident diagnoses.
Offering healthcare providers a more cost-effective, less invasive and safer solution than other radiation emitting modalities, the Aplio i-series is a highly-advanced and scalable ultrasound solution made up of the Aplio i700 and Aplio i800. Health systems, such as UC San Diego Health, are using the Aplio i-series’ imaging resolution and penetration, and comprehensive CEUS imaging and quantification package, to assess perfusion dynamics in the liver and help improve HCC surveillance results.
Quality Image/Quality Diagnosis: Dan Skyba, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. said, “The Aplio i-series offers the superb image quality clinicians need to make confident diagnosis and provide excellent patient care.” He concluded, “Combining a brand new system architecture with matrix transducer technology and a world-renown CEUS imaging package, these premium systems offer best in class resolution, penetration and dynamic contrast visualization. The Aplio i-series facilitates small HCC diagnosis and surveillance, even in obese or difficult to image patients, while improving workflow and keeping patients safe and more comfortable. As the transition to a value-based healthcare system continues, the use of CEUS for characterization of focal liver lesions is an example of a cost-effective and high-value clinical solution.”
