Aquilion PRIME series
Available in 80 and 160 slice configurations, the Aquilion PRIME series features the new Quantum V detector with 80 rows of 0.5 mm elements providing high quality isotropic images for all patient exams. An extremely high sampling rate and the highest light output of any CT detector make the new PRIME one of the most dose-efficient systems available. Its new gantry, which has a 78 cm aperture and is the largest available in a high-end system, is also significantly quieter due to an adaptive cooling system which minimizes heat dissipation by up to fifty percent, dramatically reducing overall energy consumption and saving running costs. Compact in size and with a smaller footprint, it permits installation in the smallest of rooms. In addition, Toshiba's AIDR 3D iterative reconstruction has been implemented for use in all clinical areas, providing optimal dose saving, including advanced applications such as Shuttle Brain Perfusion, Dual Energy and 3D CT fluoroscopy. Jog/Shuttle mode provides volume coverage on a helical scanner giving the ability to use dual energy and perfusion imaging on a wider range of clinical scenarios. Reconstruction speeds with AIDR 3D can be up to sixty images per second on the new system, so that keeping patient doses as low as possible does not affect examination time or throughput. The Aquilion PRIME also includes InstaViewTM reconstruction technology, providing near-instant display and review of full resolution images during scanning. High quality real-time image review is perfectly suited for the emergency patient, where every second to diagnosis counts.
