Hospital is First to Install 320-Slice CT in ED

September 4, 2008 – St. Elizabeth, in Cincinnati, OH, which serves more than 300 stroke patients annually, is the first community hospital in the U.S. to install the Aquilion ONE 320-slice CT system from Toshiba America Medical Systems in an ER setting.

The Aquilion ONE, a dynamic volume CT system, can be used to diagnose stroke and heart disease in just minutes, rather than in hours or days. This Aquilion ONE is a dynamic volume CT system that utilizes 320 ultra-high resolution detector rows (0.5 mm in width) to image an entire organ in a single gantry rotation. The system produces a 4D clinical video showing up to 16 cm of anatomical coverage, enough to capture the entire brain or heart, and show its movement such as blood flow.
“As a facility that serves hundreds of stroke patients each year, we knew the Aquilion ONE’s advanced applications would make a positive impact on our community,” said Lloyd Gil, director of radiology, St. Elizabeth Medical Center. “No other facility in the area has the ability to diagnose stroke patients in minutes using dynamic volume CT technology.”
In addition to using the Aquilion ONE for rapid stroke diagnosis, the Aquilion ONE will be used for cardiology, neurology, vascular care and orthopedics. The medical center currently performs more than 500 open-heart procedures each year, making it the second largest provider of such services in the greater Cincinnati area.
“We have already used the Aquilion ONE in a variety of cases including brain perfusion studies,” added Gil. “We will continue to use the Aquilion ONE to serve our cardiac and stroke patients as these patients require a rapid, definitive diagnosis.”
In addition, the Aquilion ONE’s single exam may provide physicians with data to replace a variety of duplicative tests and invasive procedures.
