Advanced tools to help you better evaluate disease
Powered by the industry’s most advanced Realtime Application Platform, Aplio 500 provides you with a complete range of exclusive, clinically proven technologies to increase your diagnostic confidence. By giving you valuable additional information in easy-to-understand visual, parametric and quantitative formats, these advanced technologies can help you avoid supplementary exams to get your diagnostic answer. Thus, you can save expenses and enhance your department’s productivity.
Aplio’s comprehensive contrast imaging package supports an ample variety of standard and specialty transducers allowing you to assess perfusion dynamics in a wide range of clinical settings.
The system’s complete elastography solution with raw data functionality assists you in localizing and assessing palpable masses with high accuracy, sensitivity and reproducibility in a wide range of clinical settings.
Toshiba Medical’s shear wave technology provides a dynamic visual display of tissue stiffness in a variety of clinical settings ranging from abdominal to small parts examinations. The highly accurate and reproducible tool provides fully integrated measurement and reporting.
Aplio’s Smart Maps allow you to visualize and quantify shear wave propagation in a user-defined region of interest in realtime. The user can select both dynamic propagation speed and elasticity displays for visual assessment and quantification.

The principle behind shear wave elastography
Shear waves are generated inside the human body by means of an ultrasonic burst (left). Depending on tissue stiffness, shear waves travel at varying speed, but generally very slowly through the human body. Their propagation can be followed and visualized using conventional ultrasound imaging techniques.
Navigate with ease, treat with confidence
Aplio provides you with a wide range of tools and options for advanced imaging
and interventions, helping you to deliver better outcomes from early detection to
treatment and follow-up. Dedicated transducers and an abundance of imaging
and navigation tools help you enhance clinical confidence and accuracy during
interventional procedures and their follow-up.
Correlating different imaging modalities in realtime allows you to locate difficult lesions faster, to navigate complex anatomy securely, and to improve your confidence while carrying out invasive procedures. Intelligent target markers further facilitate navigating in the region of interest.
Merging modalities to improve confidence
With Aplio, matching the transducer position with the pre-acquired 3D data set is a simple and quick two-step process. By moving the transducer over the region of interest you can now browse the area simultaneously in both realtime ultrasound and pre-acquired CT, MR or ultrasound data.
Aplio’s Smart Navigation option helps to enhance precision and patient safety during ultrasound-guided treatment procedures. Color- coded, virtual biopsy lines corresponding with the needle positions allow you to track up to three biopsy needles simultaneously.
Toshiba Medical’s Biopsy Enhancement Auto Mode (BEAM) provides a clearer visualization of biopsy needles in the live ultrasound image. BEAM works with all common needle sizes and selects the optimal scan angle automatically..
Aplio’s Center Marker is a handy tool for matching the position of a given lesion or region of interest seen in the ultrasound image with the corresponding spot on the skin surface or vice versa. The Center Marker can help facilitate biopsies or procedures involving other imaging modalities.
