Toshiba America launched an automatic cardiac output option for its PowerVision ultrasound system at the American Heart Association meeting (Anaheim, California). The system gives real-time quantification of left ventricular output from colour Doppler information. Toshiba says an operator simply conducts a scan, sets the system's region-of-interest to the left ventricular outflow tract, selects ejection phase and reads the data from the screen. PowerVision has a 32-bit central processing unit and 16 MB of image memory.
