360 View of an Aquilion One 320-slice CT at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital

This is a 360 degree image from the Canon Aquilion One 320-slice computed tomography (CT) system installed at Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital in Winfield, Ill.. The system has a large anatomical imaging area so it is able to capture the entire heart in one rotation instead of stitching images together from different heart beats.  

Read the article "What to Consider When Buying a New CT Scanner" which includes information on the 320-slice scanner.
