Toshiba Medical Transforms CT Imaging with the Launch of the Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition

Flagship CT System Introduces a New Standard in Area Detector CT That’s Sharper, Faster and Smaller

The Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition sets the standard in area detector CT with sharper image resolution, lower radiation dose and faster reconstruction times, all offered in a smaller footprint.

CHICAGO, Nov. 27, 2016 - With the introduction of the Aquilion™ ONE / GENESIS Edition, the new premium system from Toshiba Medical that builds upon a 10-year history of leadership in area detector CT, Toshiba Medical is transforming clinical confidence, the patient experience and providers’ workspace.

The new system’s numerous benefits include:

Sharper Resolution: Introducing PUREViSION Optics, PUREViSION Detector and FIRST (MBIR), improving high contrast spatial resolution up to 129 percent (2.29 times),* while reducing radiation dose up to 85.3 percent.**

Faster Exams: With reconstruction times up to 80 images per second and FIRST reconstruction achieved in as little as three minutes per volume (320 images), exams are now faster for patients than ever before.

A Smaller System: The system is small, light and consumes less power, fitting into a footprint of only 204 square feet (19 square meters) with a short bore, flared design and 30-degree tilting gantry.

“The new Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition makes the remarkable routine and provides innovative technology that sets up our customers as market leaders delivering the best patient care,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. “The transformation of our premier CT system continues to deliver healthcare providers a solution for the challenges they face and helps expand what is possible with diagnostic imaging.”

Toshiba Medical is showcasing the Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, November 27 – December 2, 2016 (Booth #7334, North Hall B).
