Safer CT Exams with Toshiba's Dose Reduction Technology
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
Healthcare providers can now deliver the safest CT exam possible, as
Toshiba (News - Alert) Medical Systems' most advanced dose reduction technology,
Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D), comes standard on all
new AquilionTM CT systems: Aquilion ONETM ViSION
Edition, Aquilion ONE, Aquilion Premium, Aquilion PRIME, Aquilion RXL
and Aquilion LB.
"Toshiba is committed to making advanced dose reduction technology
available to all CT users, not only for high-end systems or through
expensive software or hardware options," said Satrajit Misra, senior
director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba. "With the introduction of our new
Aquilion LB, the large bore system, AIDR 3D now comes as standard
technology on our entire product lineup. CT dose and safety is not a
choice that our customers and their patients should have to make."
AIDR 3D is Toshiba's third-generation iterative dose reconstruction
software that incorporates significant system enhancements by reducing
radiation dose compared to conventional scanning. It helps Toshiba CT
customers achieve the As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle,
while still producing the image quality needed for accurate diagnoses.
AIDR 3D can also be seamlessly integrated with SUREExposureTM
3D, a software that calculates the minimum radiation exposure required
for every exam. SUREExposure 3D adjusts the dose for each
patient based on a preset, targeted level of image quality, making it
easy to use on all exams.
Toshiba is showcasing its Aquilon product line and AIDR 3D technology
at this year's Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual
meeting in Chicago, Dec. 1-6, 2013 (Booth #7330, North Hall).
