The Toshiba Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition is now available at Oregon Health & Science University, a nationally prominent research university and Oregon’s only public academic medical center. The teaching hospital acquired the new system to help improve its diagnostic capabilities for trauma, cardiac, stroke, and pediatric patients. The installation marks the first 640-slice system in the state of Oregon.
The Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition and its PUREViSION Detector provide unique features for a complete CT solution. The system produces high-quality images and fast workflow with slices measuring at 0.5 mm and a gantry rotation of 0.275 seconds. Its 16 cm of coverage is capable of imaging entire organs, like the heart and brain, in a single rotation for faster and more accurate cardiac and stroke exams. The system also features a large 78-cm bore and iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D, that significantly reduces radiation dose compared with conventional scanning.
“Toshiba puts customers first and provides the industry’s best CT solution for leading hospitals and research centers like OHSU,” said Satrajit Misra, vice president of marketing at Toshiba. “OHSU is showing the versatility of the Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition for numerous clinical applications. The system’s advanced technology and patient-friendly focus can help clinicians improve clinical results, increase workflow and provide a safer exam.”
