Astelion 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 Quantum Detector technology, Astelion provides consistent image quality with an industry-leading low contrast dose and high spatial resolution of 2 mm.
- PROTOCOL SELECTION
After patient registration, Astelion selects the correct adult or child protocols automatically.
- NAVI MODE OPERATION
Astelion’s Navi Mode is perfectly suited for fast patient throughput. Regardless of whether you are an expert or a novice, this unique function lets you take advantage of the system’s high performance features quickly and with ease.
- DOSE CHECK
The Dose Check software helps ensure that the user-defined radiation dose limits cannot be exceeded by incorrect operation of the system.
- 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%.
- SUREEXPOSURE 3D ADAPTIVE
The integration of dose reduction technologies is essential for optimal dose management. AIDR 3D has therefore been seamlessly integrated with SUREExposure™ 3D, Toshiba’s automatic tube current modulation software. SUREExposure 3D modulates the exposure for each patient based on a preset target level of image quality. When combined with AIDR 3D, X-ray exposure is automatically reduced before the scan, while maintaining the preprogrammed image quality adjusted based on the expected level of noise reduction. This combination provides a unique solution for robust dose management.
- 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.
