Toshiba America Medical Systems of Tustin, CA, has rolled out a new ultrasound scanner targeted at the mid-range price point. The new product, PowerVision 6000, shares many features with the company’s premium PowerVision 7000, but in a more compact and affordable package. Toshiba introduced the system at this month’s Leading Edge conference in Atlantic City, NJ.

PowerVision 6000 is an all-digital, 256-channel scanner with high frame-rate imaging capability. The scanner also supports Toshiba technologies like Quad Signal Processing, which increases frame rates, and Digital Continuous Beam Former, which converts analog signals returning from the patient into digital form early in the signal processing procedure. Other technologies available on the system include Toshiba’s version of harmonic imaging, called Flash Echo Imaging, and its power Doppler mode, Directional Color Angio.
