TUSTIN, Calif. -- February 5, 2013

To train students with the most advanced ultrasound technology available,
Oregon Institute of Technology (Oregon Tech) installed 16 Aplio^TM 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 Xario^TM XGs, one Aplio Artida^TM 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.”
