Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc has delivered the first Aplio Artida ultrasound system to Iowa Heart Center in Des Moines, Iowa.

Artida features 4D imaging capability and 3D wall motion tracking—a deciding factor in Iowa Heart’s purchase—and real-time, multi-planar reformatting capabilities to help physicians to quantify global and regional LV function, including volumetric LV ejection fraction. Arbitrary views of the heart not available in 2D imaging are also obtained that can help with surgical planning.

Committed to providing world-class heart care, research, and prevention services to Iowa families, Iowa Heart Center’s purchase of  Toshiba’s Aplio Artida will enable it to increase its cardiovascular diagnostic capability.
