After an exhaustive search for the perfect fit, Midwest Ultrasound has purchased an initial 11 XarioTM XG ultrasound systems to be utilized at The Christ Hospital in Cincinnati and various other clients. 

Prior to selecting the system, Midwest Ultrasound developed an extensive buying matrix and competitive analysis, which compared systems based on price, system longevity, and clinical performance, among other factors. The Xario XG and Toshiba scored top marks among ten competitive systems.

“When conducting the ultrasound analysis for this agreement, the Toshiba product line received the overall highest score and excelled in clinical performance, system longevity, ergonomics and interface, service quality, and relationship potential,” said Dave Parlato, Midwest Ultrasound’s chief of clinical operations.

Midwest Ultrasound, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Christ Hospital, started with the purchase of 11 Xario XG systems. Under the two-year agreement, Midwest Ultrasound has plans to purchase additional systems for other clients.
