To lower CT radiation dose for cardiac exams and to improve image quality, the Orlando Health Heart Institute, Orlando, Fla, uses the Aquilion ONE CT system with AIDR 3D from Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc, Tustin, Calif. The Orlando Health Heart Institute uses the system for diagnoses of cardiac conditions, chest pain symptoms, and for the pre-mapping of pulmonary veins.

Toshiba’s Aquilion ONE dynamic volume CT system covers up to 16 cm of anatomy using 320 ultra-high resolution, 0.5 mm detector elements (640 unique slices), which can image the entire heart in a single rotation. The system also features AIDR 3D, Toshiba’s third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software.
