Toshiba Aquilion CX – General Information
The Toshiba Aquilion CX provides 128 slices of high definition in a single rotation. It is a high quality and versatile CT scanner with many great technologies. Therefore, each scanning with the Toshiba Aquilion CX will provide excellent results. By combining the latest developed algorithm coneXact, originally developed for the Aquillion One, the Aquilion CX can generate 128 unique slices per rotation. Each slice is in a great quality – with more details than ever. Additionally, it is equipped with the double slice technology, which allows it to take full advantage of the coneXact technology. The acquired data can be reconstructed in a double density. This results in high-precision reconstruction in MPR and 3D rendered images, reducing cone beam artifacts without interfering with dose exposure.
Furthermore, the Toshiba Aquilion CX has the Toshiba SURE technologies software. These include the SURE Cardio which delivers clear and accurate images of the heart. It also increases patient throughput by optimizing the workflow. As the machine automatically selects the optimal scan parameters for each scan, the workflow improves.
Other SURE technologies are SURE Exposure, SURE Cardio Scoring and SURE Plaque. The latter is a tool that helps clinicians when evaluating characteristics within the blood vessels. This include quantifying the plaque burden and characterizing lesions as either calcified or non-calcified.
Moreover, the Toshiba Aquilion CX has also dose reduction technologies that ensure that patients are exposed to minimal radiation during examinations. Is has been designed to ease the work of clinicians and the comfort of patients. Hence, it includes several features to ease procedures and make them safer. These include a carbon fiber couch with a large scan rate. You can return the couch into the home position by the touch of a single button.
