Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc introduces Aplio Artida, the first ultrasound system with ability to track and display myocardial motion in 3D images.
Meeting the demands of the growing cardiac 4D market, the Artida features real-time, multi-planar reformatting capabilities to aid physicians in quantifying global and regional LV function, including LV ejection fraction, volume, and severity of regurgitation.
"Toshiba's 4D tracking offers estimation of left ventricular volumes, ejection fraction and direct measurement of global and regional myocardial function by means of speckle tracking and provides insights that echocardiographers have not had before. This type of analysis will be how the next generation of echocardiographers quantifies ventricular function." - Gerard Aurigemma, MD, professor of medicine, University of Massachusetts (UMass) and director, noninvasive cardiology at the UMass Memorial Medical Center
