Toshiba’s Aquilion RXL 16-Slice CT Scanner Has Latest Dose Reduction Technology

Toshiba’s new 16-detector row computed tomography system provides faster reconstruction and helps lower radiation dose


August 23, 2012

Toshiba’s Aquilion RXL Edition computed tomography (CT) system reconstructs images faster and includes the latest dose reduction technologies, providing faster, safer information to physicians and patients.

Aquilion RXL brings advanced radiation dose reduction technology to the 16-detector row CT system with Toshiba’s Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D). AIDR 3D lowers radiation dose compared with conventional scanning, aiding clinicians in accurate diagnoses and treatment planning. It is a sophisticated algorithm designed to work in both the raw data and image data spaces, reducing noise while attempting to maintain image quality. The system also features Toshiba’s NEMA XR 25 Dose Check Software, which improves user awareness of the radiation dose administered to patients. Additionally, Aquilion RXL incorporates Toshiba’s sophisticated suite of SURE technologies, increasing clinical capabilities and significantly improving productivity. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has cleared the system in August 2012. For more information:
