Toshiba's Aquilion One Genesis CT Offers New Advances for Emergency Department Imaging

October 2, 2017 — Healthcare providers now have access to fast and safe emergency department (ED) computed tomography (CT) imaging with enhancements to the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition from Toshiba Medical, a Canon Group company. The enhancement to the premium CT system now offers Model-Based Iterative Reconstruction (MBIR), which significantly improves low-contrast detectability and high-contrast spatial resolution with Toshiba Medical’s FIRST MBIR, as well as workflow and efficiency tools.

New clinical, operational and safety enhancements include:

  • Quick Whole Body Scanning: Toshiba Medical’s exclusive three-phase Variable Helical Pitch (vHP3)* helps clinicians assess the whole body more confidently with just one scan, according to the company. vHP3 allows for scanning three different parameters and helical pitch setting within distinct anatomical areas, in a single breath, with one contrast injection, improving image quality and workflow while potentially reducing IV contrast and radiation dose;
  • Helps Clinicians Possibly Diagnose Early Stroke Sooner: Neuro FIRST MBIR improves high-contrast spatial resolution and low contrast detectability in the brain, opening doors for the possibility of seeing early signs of stroke with CT; and
  • Fast Scans with Automated Table Positioning: SUREPosition accurately centers the patient within the gantry without clinicians having to physically adjust the patient or repeat a scanogram.

The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition offers dynamic volume CT imaging ideal for trauma and life-threatening conditions like heart disease and stroke. The system features an optimized beam spectrum based on PUREViSION Optics, combined with PUREViSION Detector and FIRST (MBIR) reconstruction, offering superior image detail and resolution and up to 82.4 percent** dose reduction. Additionally, the system features SURESubtraction iodine mapping for routine exams, such as liver or oncology exams.
