In June, 2012 United Medical Instruments finalized negotiations with Toshiba America Medical to partner with them to increase distribution of the Toshiba ultrasound systems both cart—based and portable, to the physician market. United Medical Instruments (UMI) has been an industry leader selling ultrasound systems, transducers, and service for over 15 years. The company focus is in the private physician market because there is flexibility to act as a consultant with the customer, work within their budget and guide them to the right ultrasound system to meet their needs.
Toshiba America Medical is a KLAS award recipient in the areas of breast ultrasound and cardiovascular ultrasound applications. Recently their Aplio 500 ultrasound machine received recognition from University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio who is using their ultrasound –CT fusion technology to provide more accurate and better care for patients.
"Toshiba's Aplio 500 ultrasound system and Smart Fusion improve visualization during liver biopsies, giving our team the ability to see CT and ultrasound images side by side on a single screen," said Dr. Nami Azar, assistant professor, Case Western Reserve University School and a radiologist at its primary affiliate, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Division of Abdominal Imaging. "In a retrospective review, Smart Fusion has shown the potential to reduce radiation dose by lowering the number of CT procedures needed. It also has the potential to decrease costs compared to CT-only guided biopsies."
