Japanese ultrasound developer Toshiba unveiled a new line of compact scanners at last month's International Congress of Radiology meeting in New Delhi, India. The line consists of JustVision 200, a hand-carried unit that weighs just 16 kg, and JustVision 400, a cart-mounted system with a larger monitor.

Both JustVision systems are convex and linear scanners that include transducers that support abdominal, ob/gyn, intraoperative, superficial, and cardiovascular applications. In addition, JustVision transducers can be switched between three different frequencies depending on the depth of the region of interest. The feature enables sonographers to use one probe for exams that might otherwise require three scanheads.

Toshiba plans to roll out the JustVision line internationally this month. The company will begin marketing the systems in the U.S. in early 1999, according to a spokesperson with the vendor's U.S. subsidiary, Toshiba America Medical Systems in Tustin, CA.
