The 16 slice Astelion series CT systems include AIDR 3D iterative reconstruction found in Toshiba's premium level CT systems as a standard feature. Dose reduction of up to 75% is available for all clinical scans making CT examinations safer for all patients. The design of the Astelion's electrical systems minimizes heat dissipation and an innovative standby mode reduces the use of cooling fans. As a result, power consumption is reduced when the system is idle contributing to the well being of the environment. A wide range of advanced clinical applications make this scanner a powerful workhorse. Simplified operation with Navi mode is extremely practical for guiding novice operators through every step of an examination. Examinations can be performed with confidence in any location at anytime of the day and night.
