Toshiba showcases new MR smart fusion ultrasound technology

Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc., has extended Aplio 500’s Smart Fusion ultrasound technology to MR.

Smart Fusion syncs previously acquired CT or MR images with live ultrasound and displays them side-by-side on a single screen.

This technology helps to locate hard-to-find lesions and aids in ultrasound-guided procedures without additional CT fluoroscopy or MR scans. Toshiba’s Smart Fusion is easy to use, with the most intuitive user setup available.

“Toshiba’s Smart Fusion enables clinicians to eliminate multiple exams and utilize ultrasound to achieve accurate, no-dose biopsies,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director of Toshiba’s ultrasound unit. “Smart Fusion combines the best in imaging by synchronizing CT or MR with ultrasound, which is particularly useful in guiding difficult procedures in the prostate or abdomen.”
