See More with Advanced Visualization Capabilities
Aplio’s High-Density Beamformer Architecture forms the foundation of the advanced imaging capabilities and breakthrough technologies that enable you to see more and do more in the diagnosis and treatment of your patients.
Ultrasound from the inside out with Fly Thru imaging
The industry’s first Fly Thru* technology is a 3D volume rendering technique that allows you to soar through cavities, ducts and vessels from the inside and in 3D. Similar to virtual endoscopy, Fly Thru is a revolutionary tool for exploring lesions and masses and planning interventional procedures. This technology function is available both during or post exam.
Smart Fusion
Smart Fusion* offers the best of both worlds by synchronizing ultrasound with CT images for locating hard-to-find lesions and improving confidence during ultrasound-guided biopsies. Smart Fusion reads 3D DICOM data sets from CT systems and, using position sensors located on the ultrasound transducer, displays the corresponding images, side-by-side with the live ultrasound image.
