      SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE WITH THE LARGEST TRUE FIELD-OF-VIEW

      Designed to expand the dimensions of CT, Aquilion LB combines Toshiba’s award winning CT technologies with the advantages of a large bore platform. Aquilion LB provides you a true, industry-leading, 70 cm field-of-view (FOV) acquisition, covering more anatomy with greater accuracy than ever before. Aquilion LB also features a tremendous 90 cm wide bore for easy patient positioning and for increasing diagnostic anatomical coverage resulting in optimized diagnosis and treatment.

       

      The 16-detector row / 32 slices Aquilion LB CT system delivers routine low-dose scans for each patient in a wide variety of clinical examinations. CT simulation is a procedure used during the treatment planning stage to identify the exact location and size of the area that needs treatment. Aquilion LB is specifically designed to meet oncology challenges and improve patient care. Now CT simulation positioning can easily mirror radiation therapy positioning without compromise.

      • AIDR 3D

      AIDR 3D is a sophisticated algorithm that has been designed to work in both the raw data and reconstruction domains. The collective AIDR 3D process results in robust noise reduction, which is essential for achieving ultralow-dose examinations in routine clinical imaging. This iterative algorithm is superior to non-iterative approaches in removing background noise while preserving diagnostic information.

       

       


      • OUR COMMITMENT TO DOSE REDUCTION

      - TOSHIBA’S CT SYSTEMS – DESIGNED FOR LOW-DOSE EXAMS

      Dose reduction is considered in every step of the system design, because Toshiba engineers recognize that all the small dose savings add up. For example, the gantry is designed with the X-ray tube located further from the patient, reducing the skin entrance dose.

       

      Aquilion LB employs the latest dose reduction technologies such as SUREExposure 3D Adaptive and AIDR 3D in the standard configuration.

    • COMPREHENSIVE LOW-DOSE EXAMINATION

      Aquilion LB dose reduction and reporting technologies are integrated into every step of each scan performed, ensuring the highest possible level of patient safety.

       

      Using Toshiba’s exclusive PUREViSION Detector technology, Aquilion LB provides consistent image quality with an industry-leading low contrast dose and high spatial resolution of 2 mm.

       
       
      • EXAM PLAN

      - PROTOCOL SELECTION

      Aquilion LB is delivered with an extensive range of clinically proven scan protocols that are ready to use “out-of-the-box”.

       

      After patient registration, the system automatically loads the correct selection of adult or child protocols based on the patient’s age. In addition, protocols are anatomically grouped with an intuitive graphical interface to ensure easy and correct protocol selection.

       

      - DOSE CHECK

      The Dose Check software helps ensure that the user-defined radiation dose limits cannot be exceeded by incorrect operation of the system.

       

       


      • RECONSTRUCTION

      - AIDR 3D

      AIDR 3D can be applied to all acquisition modes in routine clinical use and is able to remove up to 50% of image noise, resulting in dose reductions of up to 75%.

       


      • SCAN

      - SUREEXPOSURE 3D ADAPTIVE

      SUREExposure 3D Adaptive can achieve a dose reduction of up to 40%, depending on the individual patient and the anatomical region to be scanned.

       

      By using AIDR 3D in combination, the dose is automatically reduced further by up to 75% before the scan. In this manner, dose reduction can be integrated into every scan protocol.

       


      • REPORT

      - DOSE REPORT

      In accordance with IHE recommendations, the Radiation Exposure Monitoring Profile function is provided in the software. This function automatically records all scanning data, enabling accurate tracking of the dose for a particular study.
