From complex to routine, Aquilion Prime SP is designed to keep pace with your work list, with new standards of image quality provided at the right dose for every patient. An expansive suite of protocol integrated application solutions enables the seamless and rapid adoption of the most advanced CT procedures into your clinical practice. Aquilion Prime SP can automate complex exams while delivering high quality data.
Aquilion Prime SP brings routine imaging to new levels of image detail and low contrast dose– balanced for each clinical question at the right dose. A completely redesigned X-ray system from photon generation to beam distribution and detection is the basis of PUREViSION Optics. This results in a better balance between image quality and dose. Adaptive scatter correction removes scatter through intelligent modeling that preserves more primary photons for reconstruction as compared to a hardware-based approach.
Patient specific beam shaping filters provide an optimized X-ray spectrum and more homogenous distribution, improving low contrast detectability and lower overall dose requirements.
THE RGHT BALANCE BETWEEN IMAGE QUALITY AND DOSE FOR EVERY PATIENT, FROM THE YOUNGEST TO THE LARGEST.
- X-ray Generation – Small focal spot imaging for a wider range of exams
- X-ray Distribution – Adaptive Beam shaping optics ensure homogenous photon spread to maximize resolution for each clinical task while minimizing dose for patients of all shapes and sizes.
- X-ray Transmission – Prime SP utilizes raw data based scatter modeling and correction technology to ensure uniform image quality. A smart approach compared to scatter grids which sacrifice primary photons before they are ever detected.
- X-ray Detection – The PUREVision Detector produces 40% more light to the photodiode. A breakthrough in scinilator production from a single praseodymium activated ceramic ingot.
