Oregon Tech will use the Aplio 300s to teach students in three medical imaging undergraduate programs. The institute also utilizes other Toshiba ultrasound systems, including three Xario XGs, one Aplio Artida, and five Aplio XGs.

“Oregon Tech offers a robust curriculum with more than 150 students imaging daily, so we needed reliable ultrasound equipment with no downtime and a partner offering exceptional service support,” said LeAnn Maupin, professor of vascular technology and chair of medical imaging technology, Oregon Tech. “Toshiba’s Aplio 300 gives Oregon Tech a competitive edge by offering students the most advanced technology with high quality images. The systems are ideal for an educational setting because they’re easy to use with the ability to customize protocols for a variety of curriculums.”
