Cost-Effective, Premium 16-slice CT to be Unveiled by Toshiba at RSNA 2015

October 1, 2015 — Combining premium computed tomography (CT) technology with the economic advantage of an entry-level system, Toshiba is showcasing the newest 16-detector-row system in its CT portfolio at RSNA 2015. The Aquilion Lightning (pending 510(k) clearance) is designed for routine volumetric scanning and features thin 0.5 mm slices, a wide, 78 cm bore and a small installation and cost footprint. 

It will offer premium features found in high-end Aquilion scanners, including the PUREViSION Detector and AIDR 3D Enhanced dose reduction technology. The system ensures customers do not need to compromise quality to meet their business goals, while reducing their total cost of ownership and helping them to meet XR-29 compliance standards. In addition, the inclusion of Adaptive Diagnostics technologies, including Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction (SEMAR), and SURESubtraction means complex scans are simplified and outcomes are more consistent.
