October 8, 2015 — Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU) now offers patients one of the most advanced computed tomography (CT) imaging systems available with the installation of Toshiba’s Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition. OHSU, a nationally prominent research university and Oregon’s only public academic medical center, acquired the new system to help improve its diagnostic capabilities for trauma, cardiac, stroke and pediatric patients. Adding the first 640-slice system in the state of Oregon allows OHSU to deliver better patient care and maintain its position as one of the leading health care institutions in the United States.

The Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition and its PUREViSION Detector produce high-quality images and fast workflow with 640 0.5 mm slices and a gantry rotation of 0.275 seconds. Its 16 cm of coverage is capable of imaging entire organs, like the heart and brain, in a single rotation for faster and more accurate cardiac and stroke exams. Patients are also more comfortable and safer, as the system features a large 78-cm bore and iterative dose reconstruction software, AIDR 3D, that significantly reduces radiation dose compared with conventional scanning.
