Overview Video

Aquilion Prime SP CT


An optimized beam spectrum based on PUREViSION Optics results in a better balance between image quality and dose.

Aquilion PRIME SP with PUREViSION Optics transforms routine imaging to new levels of image detail, resolution and dose.


vHP3*—Variable Helical Parameters

Overall faster scan times make vHP3 compliant to the needs of the patient. A single series reconstruction enables several studies to be interpreted simultaneously for faster reading.

  • May decrease radiation dose to the patient
  • May decrease the amount of IV contrast needed
  • May improve the workflow for complex clinical exams
