Toshiba to Demo Aquilion ONE's Capabilities for Stroke, Pediatric Imaging

October 22, 2009 - Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase at RSNA 2009 the capabilities of the Aquilion ONE, its dynamic volume CT system, including the ability to save crucial time in emergency departments and image pediatric patients with reduced sedation and radiation. , including the ability to save crucial time in emergency departments and image pediatric patients with reduced sedation and radiation.

Unlike any other CT system available, the Aquilion ONE can scan an entire organ, including the brain, in a single rotation because it covers up to 16 cm of anatomy using 320 ultra-high resolution 0.5 mm detector elements, and shows the organ’s dynamic blood flow and real-time function.

The Aquilion ONE allows physicians to reduce diagnosis time for life-threatening conditions, such as a stroke, from hours or days to minutes. The ability to see dynamic function, such as blood flowing through the brain, in stroke patients is critical in emergency settings and enables rapid and accurate diagnosis of stroke patients when time is of the essence.

The Aquilion ONE offers unique imaging features for pediatrics. Its rapid acquisition time and ability to show dynamic function reduce exam time, lower radiation dose and minimize the amount of patient sedation required, as pediatric patients can move during an exam without comprising image quality.

Toshiba will also be showcasing new software upgrades for the Aquilion ONE.
