Toshiba’s New CT Images Entire Organ in One Rotation

November 26, 2007 – At RSNA 2007, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. introduced what is to be the world’s first dynamic volume computed tomography (CT) system, the AquilionONE, 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.

The AquilionONE was developed over 10 years with multiple prototypes and represents the greatest advancement in CT technology to date. In 2007, AquilionONE beta systems were tested at Fujita Health University and the National Cancer Center in Japan and Johns Hopkins University in the U.S.
