Toshiba America Medical Systems‘ Aplio Platinum series ultrasound system has met Air Force and Defense Health Agency guidelines for patient health information malware and malicious software protection, the company said Thursday.

Aplio Platinum systems contain Microsoft Windows 7 and application whitelisting security software programs in an effort to identify and prevent viruses and malicious solicitations.

Toshiba also holds ATOs from the Air Force for the company’s CT, MR and cardiovascular X-ray systems.
