System delivers fast, safe exams for young patients

Cincinnati Children's Acquires Toshiba Aquilion One Genesis CT for Pediatric Care

September 26, 2017 — Patients at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center now have access to the latest in dynamic volume computed tomography (CT) technology with the installation of the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition from Toshiba Medical. The system is used for a wide range of routine and advanced exams, from body imaging and biopsies to neuro and dynamic airway imaging, bringing the benefits of fast, low-dose CT exams to pediatric patients.

 “We were looking for a premium CT system to replace our 64-slice scanner, and the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition with FIRST MBIR reconstruction offered us excellent image quality, the 16 cm of coverage needed for fast, complete exams and dose reduction technology to help keep our patients safe,” said Andrew Trout, M.D., assistant professor of radiology and pediatrics, Cincinnati Children’s. “Moreover, these features came in a smaller footprint that, coupled with Toshiba Medical’s supportive service team, meant the installation was efficient and we faced minimal downtime before beginning to use the system with patients.”

The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition features an optimized beam spectrum based on PUREViSION Optics, PUREViSION CT Detector and FIRST, improving high-contrast spatial resolution by up to 129 percent (2.29 times), while reducing radiation dose by up to 82.4 percent. With AIDR 3-D reconstruction times up to 80 images per second and FIRST reconstruction achieved in as little as three minutes per volume (320 images), exams are fast and low-dose for young patients. Additionally, the system is small and light and consumes less power, fitting into a footprint of only 204 square feet (19 square meters), with a short bore, flared design and 30-degree tilting gantry.
