Toshiba’s Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition Advances Cardiac Care

Changes Patient Pathways by Improving Workflow, Image Quality and Safety

TUSTIN, Calif.--()--Clinicians can provide their patients with cardiac solutions with Toshiba’s Aquilion™ ONE ViSION Edition CT system. The system is capable of aiding clinicians in diagnosing patients presenting with chest pain.

“We understand our customers’ business and deliver diagnostic imaging solutions that help them achieve the Triple Aim of reform for cardiac care,” said Satrajit Misra, senior director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba. “The fast rotation speed, large coverage area and Adaptive Diagnostics technologies deliver excellent image quality and more efficient workflow.”

The Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition and its new PURE ViSION CT Detector provide unique benefits for cardiac care:

  • Images the Heart in a Single Rotation: Produces high-quality images and fast workflow by capturing the entire heart in one rotation with 640 slices
  • Accommodates More Patients: Can image bariatrics and those with high heart rates with a gantry rotation of 0.275 seconds and a large bore (78 cm)
  • Captures Anatomy and Function: The system’s lesion visualization and myocardial perfusion capability allow clinicians to visualize and quantify myocardial ischemia with a single CT exam
  • Safer Exams: Ensuring that CT dose and safety is not a choice clinicians have to make, Toshiba’s third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D, offers simplified dose reduction that produces the image quality needed for diagnosis at low dose

Toshiba will showcase the Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition at this year’s American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in San Diego, March 14-16, 2015 (Booth #1916).
