Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’ reports that its new Viamo laptop device is ‘…the industry’s no-compromise ultrasound system with advanced radiology capabilities, previously unavailable on hand-carried systems’, adding that It offers the same premier image quality as larger, more expensive ultrasound systems, but at a lower price.

‘Developed from a radiology foundation, Toshiba’s Viamo provides the confidence to image patients at the bedside, which generally requires larger, more expensive cart-based systems. When an immobile patient needs a high-end ultrasound exam, the portable Viamo ultrasound is brought to the patient to improve the patient’s comfort, without compromising exam quality. It is also ideal for a variety of patient exams, including general radiology, paediatric, emergency, OB/GYN and vascular.’
Toshiba’s list of Viamo assets:
• 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 the bedside. It is, for example, beneficial during liver transplants when medical personnel must image the anastomoses to assess blood flow through the vessels.
• Excellent image quality and colour 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.
