The Toshiba family of Aquilion CT scanners has recently been expanded to include the new Aquilion ONE/ ViSION Edition, a faster version of the very successful Aquilion ONE, of which over 700 have been ordered globally.
The Aquilion ONE/ ViSION Edition distinguishes itself with a faster rotation speed of just 0.275 seconds which is applicable for all routine applications. A wider 78 cm gantry bore improves patient comfort and access. In combination with AIDR 3D, the ViSION Edition provides fast and robust low dose imaging for all patient examinations with negligible impact of reconstruction time.
The 16cm z-axis coverage allows entire organs such as the heart to be imaged in just one rotation. The ViSION Edition also introduces 3D CT Fluoroscopy, allowing the physician to visualize complicated interventional procedures in multiple planes for greater ease and improved safety.
Save time and storage space with Toshiba's Hybrid View reconstruction kernels. These newly introduced iterative reconstruction algorithms provide sharp lungs and excellent soft tissue resolution in the one image. Reading times are shortened as you only need to concentrate on a single series to make a definitive diagnosis.
SURESubtractionTM is a revolutionary subtraction technique providing pixel perfect bone removal in neuro, carotid and orthopedic applications. The sophisticated non-rigid position matching technology provides highly accurate CT DSA studies increasing diagnostic confidence. This technology is set to change the way physicians perform and read CTA studies.
Toshiba's patented hybrid drive converts energy during deceleration of the gantry and generates electricity that is recycled to power gantry components. A thoughtful design feature minimizes power consumption and reduces carbon footprint.
New generation AquilionTM PRIME 80 and 160 slices
The new generation Aquilion PRIME, available in 80 and 160 slice configurations is being showcased for the first time at this year's ECR. The Aquilion PRIME series features the Quantum detector with 80 rows of 0.5mm elements, providing high quality isotropic images for all patient examinations.
The new Aquilion PRIME is smaller in size and footprint permitting installation in even the smallest rooms. The PRIME gantry is also significantly quieter due to an adaptive cooling system which minimizes heat dissipation by up to 50% and overall energy consumption has been dramatically reduced, saving running costs.
