Medical imaging systems provider Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc, will supply 20 Toshiba Xario ultrasound systems to the Oregon Institute of Technology’s (OIT) new $22 million Oregon Center for Health Professions.

The center states that its goal is to offer students training on the best technology available and the Xario ultrasound system is recognized for its features that promote operator comfort and ease of movement, with advanced imaging techniques, superb image quality, and high spatial resolution.

OIT offers the only hands-on training ultrasound bachelor’s degree in Oregon and is one of only three schools in the country that offer a vascular technology bachelor’s degree. The school’s new center will double the size of its student body by expanding current programs and adding new health programs.
