When a patient comes to a hospital’s emergency department (ED) exhibiting stroke symptoms, it can take hours to diagnose and treat the patient when time is of the essence. Toshiba’s Aquilion® ONE dynamic volume CT system has the ability to improve the quality of life for patients with neurological symptoms, especially related to stroke, by reducing diagnosis time to minutes. Highlighting these capabilities, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. will feature the Aquilion ONE at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, held in Chicago, Nov. 29 – Dec. 4 (Booth #5629, South Hall).
The Aquilion ONE allows physicians to reduce diagnosis time for life-threatening conditions such as a stroke from hours or days to minutes. Unlike any other CT system available, the Aquilion ONE covers up to 16 cm of anatomy using 320 ultra-high resolution 0.5 mm detector elements to image an entire organ, including the brain, in a single rotation. It can show the organ’s dynamic blood flow and real-time function. The ability to see dynamic function, such as blood flowing through the brain, is critical for stroke patients in emergency settings and enables rapid and accurate diagnosis when time is critical.
