Large bore CT system improves oncology patient care with SEMAR and PUREViSION CT detector

Toshiba Medical Demonstrates Radiation Therapy Planning Enhancements for Aquilion LB CT at ASTRO

September 25, 2017 — Toshiba Medical will showcase new advanced technology on its Aquilion LB computed tomography (CT) system at this year’s American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) annual meeting, Sept. 24-27 in San Diego. Giving oncologists the tools to clearly visualize patients’ anatomy with a lower dose, the system comes standard with Toshiba Medical’s PUREViSION CT Detector and Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction (SEMARM).

The Aquilion Large Bore offers a suite of clinical and patient-friendly features, including bore size (90 cm), field-of-view (70 cm), optional extended field-of-view (85 cm) and an optional high-capacity couch (660 lb.), to image more patients safely. The company’s PUREViSION CT Detector assists in acquiring high-quality CT images with 16 detector rows, while SEMAR helps reduce artifacts caused by metal implants, allowing providers to view more clinical information. Additionally, the Aquilion Large Bore includes Toshiba Medical’s AIDR 3-D Enhanced, which lowers radiation dose compared with conventional scanning.

Jatinder Palta, Ph.D., professor, radiation oncology, chair, medical physics, VCU School of Medicine, will present on “Uncompromised Patient Model for Treatment Planning: Advantages of a 90 cm CT Bore” and his use of the Aquilion LB with SEMAR during a dinner symposium at this year’s ASTRO.
