A year after its successful introduction, two clinicians will present their experience with Toshiba America Medical System’s Aquilion® ONE dynamic volume CT and demonstrate how it is changing clinical pathways.
With substantial experience imaging both cardiac and neurological patients, both clinicians will illustrate the benefits of dynamic volume CT imaging and how it is improving patient diagnosis.
The Aquilion ONE is the only CT system available that can scan an entire organ, including the heart or brain, in a single rotation. The system covers up to 16 cm of anatomy using 320 ultra-high resolution 0.5 mm detector elements.
The Aquilion ONE allows physicians to see not only a three-dimensional depiction of the organ, but also the organ’s dynamic blood flow and function for the first time. Capturing the organ in a single rotation at one moment in time eliminates the need to reconstruct slices from multiple points in time. This feature helps reduce exam time, as well as radiation and contrast dose.
The system also has the ability to reduce costs and streamline treatment by replacing several tests with one exam, eliminating the costs of performing unnecessary and invasive exams.
