Toshiba introduces the Viamo laptop ultrasound system, the “industry’s no-compromise ultrasound system with advanced radiology capabilities, previously unavailable on hand-carried systems.” It combines a laptop system with radiology features creating a portable ultrasound examination system.
The new Toshiba Viamo laptop ultrasound system offers:
- Best-in-class imaging capabilities in a laptop size, making it ideal for high-end radiology, vascular, emergency, bariatric and OB/GYN exams, even at bedside. For example, Viamo is beneficial during liver transplants when medical personnel must image the anastomoses to assess blood flow through the vessels.
- Excellent image quality and color flow comparable to those of larger, more expensive cart-based systems.
- Ease of use with a simple touch-screen interface that is programmable in panel or tablet modes.
- Ability to interchange Toshiba transducers while using the Viamo’s transportation pole, thus improving productivity and flexibility while saving health care costs by reducing the need to purchase multiple transducers. This unique feature improves productivity and saves money for current customers by using their existing Toshiba transducers on the Viamo. Additionally, new customers are able to use Viamo transducers with other Toshiba ultrasound systems they may purchase in the future.
