Toshiba has released a new mid-range, scalable CT system for hospitals and providers. The Aquilion PRIME can be upgraded from 40 slices to either 80 or 160 without purchasing additional hardware and offers a small footprint for compact spaces. Its 78 cm bore and a 660-lb capacity couch provides a low, secure patient platform that can also move laterally, while a 60-second image reconstruction speed also ensures faster diagnoses.

“Healthcare policies require hospitals to provide value-based care to their patients, making the Aquilion PRIME an ideal mid-tier CT solution,” said Satrajit Misra, senior director of Toshiba’s CT business unit. “It is the first advanced CT solution that can ensure their success, and grow as clinical and operational needs change.”
