Toshiba Medical Launches Aquilion Lightning CT System

April 12, 2017 — Providers can now offer enhanced care and safe imaging to patients with a compact and economical solution thanks to Toshiba Medical’s Aquilion Lightning 80 computed tomography (CT) system. The 80-detector row (160-slice*) system is designed for full body imaging and routine volumetric scanning with the premium CT technology found on high-end systems so that providers can deliver a better patient experience.            

The Aquilion Lightning 80 is designed to be a total cost of ownership solution for the mid-tier CT space. The system delivers fast reconstruction speeds of up to 50 images per second at full resolution, and it optimizes workflow and patient comfort with the industry’s thinnest slices at 0.5 mm, according to Toshiba, and a 78-cm bore. To simplify exams, the Aquilion Lightning 80 comes standard with Adaptive Diagnostic solutions, such as Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction (SEMAR) and SURESubtraction. The system can also be reconfigured from 40 to 80 to 160 slices without replacing hardware. Design features of Aquilion Lightning 80 make this scanner a wide, fast and small solution for CT providers.
