320-Slice CT Helps Diagnose Acute Chest Pain

 

October 25, 2010

320-Slice CT Helps Diagnose Acute Chest Pain system is designed to image a large region of the chest in only two to three volume X-ray rotations, providing critical diagnostic information while minimizing radiation exposure.

Designed for ECG-gated CT imaging, the 16 cm coverage and wide-volume cardiac protocol of the Aquilion One enable physicians to image the entire lung, aorta and heart quickly. The larger coverage area allows clinicians to better diagnose heart disease and determine the appropriate treatment course. Additionally, the system’s lower radiation dose and fast exam time make it suitable for use in diagnosing acute chest pain in the emergency room.
