Oregon Institute of Technology Installs 16 Toshiba Ultrasound Systems

To train students with the most advanced ultrasound technology available, Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) installed 16 AplioTM 300 ultrasound systems from Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. Oregon Tech will use the Aplio 300s to teach students in three medical imaging undergraduate programs.

“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.”

In addition, Oregon Tech utilizes other Toshiba ultrasound systems, including three XarioTM XGs, one Aplio ArtidaTM and five Aplio XGs.

“We worked closely with Oregon Tech to provide a plan that meets its imaging and financial requirements for multiple student education programs,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “Toshiba’s Aplio 300 offers exceptional image quality in a smaller, versatile platform, perfect to train students for routine exams, including radiology, OB/GYN and cardiac.”

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
