WASHINGTON -- March 27, 2014

Pacific Vascular, Inc. is providing its patients with the latest in ultrasound
technology by acquiring 36 Aplio^TM 300 ultrasound systems from Toshiba
America Medical Systems, Inc. Across 12 facilities in Washington, Toshiba
recently completed extensive training with Pacific Vascular staff and
customized multiple protocols and measurements for their vascular imaging
needs.

“We were in the process of going completely digital and wanted to upgrade our
ultrasound systems with a single platform,” said Bonnie Brown, technical
director, Pacific Vascular. “After reviewing several other ultrasound systems
on the market, we knew the Aplio 300 was the right choice, because it’s easy
to use and produces excellent vascular image quality. Toshiba’s partnership
approach also gave us the service, support and training we needed to be up and
running right away.”

The Aplio 300 offers exceptional industry-leading depth and detail in a
smaller, versatile platform for all routine cardiovascular ultrasound exams.
It comes standard with advanced workflow tools and ergonomics, including the
iStyle^TM+ Productivity Suite, enabling efficient and precise exams.

“Hospitals and imaging centers are looking for more than just advanced imaging
technology as they navigate through health reform,” said Tomohiro Hasegawa,
director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Toshiba. “They need a long-term partner
offering customized training, education and service to give them a worry-free
experience so they can focus on what matters most, which is caring for their
patients.”

Toshiba will showcase the Aplio 300 ultrasound system at this year’s American
College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in Washington, D.C., March 29–April
2, 2014 (Booth #2323).
