Toshiba American Medical Systems of Tustin, CA, last month introduced the next generation of its mid-range ultrasound scanners at the American College of Cardiology conference in New Orleans. PowerVision 6000edp (expanded digital performance) allows users to select multifrequency tissue harmonics that best match the size of the patient and acoustic access, and incorporates technological advancements in Doppler performance and color maps for cardiac and vascular applications.

Other technologies available on the system include Toshiba’s version of harmonic imaging, called Flash Echo Imaging, and its latest version of Clear View Tissue Harmonics (CVTH). The company plans to provide the $30,000 PowerVision 6000edp as a free upgrade to facilities that already have PowerVision 6000 installed. Toshiba launched PowerVision 6000 last spring (SCAN 5/27/98).
