Aquilion Lightning / SP package incorporates the latest hardware, software and reconstruction technologies allowing you to keep pace with your busy workload while maintaining the best image quality.
The system provides streamlined workflow from patient setup to diagnosis. A fast and efficient examination with automated minimal dose selection ensures both optimal imaging results and patient experience.
- Protocol selection
After patient registration Aquilion Lightning / SP package selects the correct adult or child protocols automatically.
- Dose check
Aquilion Lightning / SP package helps ensure that the radiation dose limit you defined cannot be exceeded to avoid unintended high dose levels.
- SUREExposureTM 3D
This fully integrated automatic exposure control ensures optimum image quality for each patient at the lowest possible dose.
- Real-time imaging
The system provides real-time imaging during the scan allowing you to monitor the result instantaneously – a valuable tool for saving scan time and radiation dose.
- Contrast Management
By allowing contrast protocols to be added to your exam plan, flow rate and volume are automatically based on actual patient weight and exam type, while the injection is synced** with the scan.
- Automated kV selection
To further save iodine volume, SUREkV automatically uses the lowest kV setting for CTA examinations.
- AIDR 3D Enhanced*
Toshiba Medical’s iterative reconstruction technology can be applied to all examinations resulting in dose reductions of up to 75 % in daily routine.
- Fast reconstruction**
With a reconstruction speed of up to 50 images per second** at full resolution rapid diagnosis and high patient throughput are facilitated.
