Toshiba CT, MR Win KLAS Awards

Jan. 29, 2007 — Toshiba’s Aquilion 64-slice CT and Vantage 1.5T MRI systems received 2006 Best in KLAS awards in the Medical Equipment Leaders category from KLAS Enterprises, LLC.

For the first time, KLAS included the medical equipment category in their Best in KLAS round-up and provided ratings for computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR). The Aquilion 64 received an overall score of 90.95 out of 100 in the CT category, and the Vantage received a score of 91.8 out of 100 in MR. The Best in KLAS award reflects product and service performance data provided by hospitals, clinics and outpatient facilities collected over the last 13 months.

The Aquilion 64 features advanced multislice CT technologies, and is built on Toshiba's unique 64-row Quantum detector. With 64 detector rows, 3-D cone beam algorithms and volume reconstruction, the Aquilion 64 has a superior multidetector design, producing high-speed, high-resolution imaging with superior low-contrast resolution at the industry's lowest dose.

The Vantage features advanced MRI applications with a wide range of optional packages including cardiac imaging, advanced Echo Planar Imaging, Diffusion and Perfusion Imaging, Peripheral Angiography and Fresh Blood Imaging, SuperFASE (Fast Advanced Spin Echo) Imaging and Body Vision. In addition, Toshiba's SPEEDER parallel imaging allows for increased acquisition speed and reduced examination times.
