Ultra Helical CT Scanning Introduced

 

November 1, 2010

A works-in-progress 160-detector row helical computed tomography (CT) scanning system is being unveiled on the Toshiba Aquilion One and Aquilion Premium during RSNA 2010. Ultra helical scanning can image the entire chest, abdomen and pelvis in less than five seconds, which is 2.5 times faster than standard 64-detector row CT imaging.

This imaging mode is ideal for routine body imaging and for patients who have difficulty staying still during exams, such as trauma patients and pediatrics. It produces significantly less motion artifact and provides clinicians with high-quality images for accurate diagnosis.
