St. Luke’s Lakeside Hospital of The Woodlands, Texas has chosen Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. to provide magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasound, computed tomography (CT), X-ray and vascular equipment for its newly built surgical hospital.

St. Luke’s Lakeside is a collaboration between St. Luke’s Episcopal Health System and area cardiovascular and orthopedic/spine specialists. With a focus on providing comprehensive cardiac and orthopedic care, physicians requested the latest in medical imaging technology for the six surgical suites and three cardiac catheterization labs.

To meet its unique imaging needs, St. Luke’s Lakeside has installed Toshiba’s Vantage Titan MR system, Aplio Artida ultrasound system, Aquilion® CX CT system, two Infinix™-i cath labs and a Kalare™ R&F system.

Diane McNamee, CNO and assistant vice president, St. Luke’s Lakeside Hospital said, Our goal with this facility was to build a place that is at the forefront of medical innovation. To do this we needed imaging equipment that could image patients regardless of their size or special needs and still produce high quality images that would improve diagnostic confidence and accuracy. We chose Toshiba equipment for its ability to produce high quality images, as well as handle the more challenging cases we see.
