After a tornado decimated the hospital only four years ago, Mercy Hospital Joplin in Joplin, Mo., reopened its doors in March with a new, 900,000-square-foot facility with state-of-the-art equipment. Mercy Hospital Joplin, formerly St. John’s Regional Medical Center, acquired eight AplioTM 300 Platinum ultrasound systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. to provide the latest in imaging technology for general, cardiology and vascular ultrasound studies.

The Aplio 300 Platinum offers exceptional image quality in a small, versatile platform and features a high-resolution 19-inch monitor. The iStyleTM Productivity Suite, an adaptable user interface, delivers workflow automation tools for faster exams. The Aplio 300 Platinum also includes advanced imaging features, such as Advanced Dynamic FlowTM (ADF), Differential Tissue Harmonics (D-THI), Precision Imaging and ApliPureTM+. In addition, BEAM needle visualization allows for better procedural accuracy and minimal invasiveness, leading to a better overall customer experience.
