March 21, 2017 — Toshiba Medical demonstrated its Forward projected model-based Iterative Reconstruction SoluTion (FIRST) for cardiac exams at this year’s American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2017 annual meeting, March 17-19 in Washington, D.C. Available on its most advanced computed tomography (CT) systems, the Aquilion One / Genesis Edition and the Aquilion One Vision Edition, FIRST (MBIR) helps make CT exams safer, reduces noise and offers clinicians high-resolution images to make confident cardiac diagnoses.

The FIRST technology helps improve high-contrast spatial resolution while reducing radiation dose up to 85.3 percent as compared to filtered back projection* and drastically cuts the time needed for model-based CT image reconstruction. FIRST can improve high-contrast spatial resolution by up to 69 percent (1.69 times) as compared to filtered back projection* for cardiac imaging while reducing radiation dose. Utilizing the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition CT system, clinicians can offer fast chest pain triage by combining one-beat low-dose high-resolution cardiac CT angiography (CTA) with FIRST MBIR.
