West Virginia University Hospitals (WVUH) wanted to acquire new technology to improve workflow and patient care in its busy radiology department. Using the Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition from Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc, WVUH has expanded its existing imaging programs for a wide range of patient cases, including brain perfusion, cardiac and orthopedic.

The Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition offers a gantry rotation of 0.275 seconds and 320 detector rows (640 unique slices), covering 16 cm in a single rotation with 500-micron (0.5 mm) slices. The system improves patient safety with Toshiba’s third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D, which incorporates system enhancements that significantly reduce radiation dose compared with conventional scanning.
