Beth Israel Hospital Installs Aquilion ONE

May 22, 2008 – Toshiba installed the Aquilion ONE dynamic volume CT system at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School in Boston, hoping to provide a faster, more accurate diagnosis, creating better patient outcomes and lower healthcare costs.

The dynamic volume computed tomography (CT) system is an advanced diagnostic imaging system that can image an entire organ in a single rotation or over multiple rotations, showing real-time dynamic movement.

Additionally, multiphase studies, such as perfusion of the brain, heart and other organs, are possible with the AquilionONE. With this system, it is possible to image an entire organ in a single rotation, for the first time, ensuring greater accuracy and diagnostic confidence and covering up to 16 centimeters of anatomy using 320 ultra high resolution 0.5-millimeter detector elements. Physicians using the AquilionONE can see not only a three-dimensional depiction of an organ, but also how the organ and blood flow are dynamically functioning or moving within and around the organ.

The AquilionONE can reportedly perform uniquely comprehensive exams, including functional studies, that can reduce overall healthcare costs by replacing the need for multiple tests and invasivmaterial and radiation dose. AquilionONE shows not only whole organ anatomy, but also the changes in the entire organ over time. In addition, the system can perform a comprehensive neurological examination providing arterial, venous and whole brain perfusion in a single study with both less contrast and radiation dose.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center is a patient care, teaching and research affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and ranks among the top four in National Institutes of Health funding among independent hospitals nationwide. BIDMC is clinically affiliated with the Joslin Diabetes Center and is a research partner of Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center. BIDMC is the official hospital of the Boston Red Sox.
