13RAD·BOOK 2013 COMPUTEDTOMOGRAPHY A totally new way of scan- ning children, instanta- neous one shot scanning using handy snap can dra- matically reduce the need for patient sedation and simultaneously improve image quality while lowering radiation dose requirements. Low dose dynamic acquisi- tion during patient respira- tion allows true functional assessment for a variety of airways diseases. Volumet- ric scanning without table motion obvi- ates the need for respiratory triggering devices. These clinical applications are made possible by: – 16 cm of patient per rotation for ultra helical and dynamic volume acquisitions – The world’s thinnest 0.5 mm detec- tor elements providing the best pos- sible spatial resolution – Angled helical scans – Tech Assist lateral table movement and 78 cm large bore (only ViSION Edition) – Intelligent arrhythmia rejection – Routine low dose imaging with in- tegrated AIDR 3D – Myocardial perfusion validated by CORE320 multicenter study PATIENT PROTECTION Innovations in hardware and soft- ware have been designed to protect your patient throughout the entire ex- amination. Less Photons Equals Less Dose - The Quantum Vi Detector The newly developed Quantum Vi delivers a photon to light conversion rate 20% more efficient than other de- tector systems. Combined with a math- ematically negligible afterglow, this detector provides artifact free images with fewer x-ray photons. Advanced DAS design and inno- vative electronic shielding technology eliminate unwanted electronic noise and transfers signal at a rate of 20 Gb per second. This advanced design en- sures preservation of signal integrity and ultimately image quality. Integrated Dose Reduction Toshiba’s Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction in three dimensions (AIDR 3D) is fully integrated in the tube cur- rent modulation SUREExposure 3D soft- ware to optimize dose management for routine clinical use. The advantages of AIDR 3D in a nut- shell: – Protocol integration – Prospective mA reduction – Ease of use – Assured image quality – For each and every scan – Powerful reconstruction architec- ture delivering a maximum rate of 50 images per second.
