Toshiba America Medical Systems has won FDA clearance for a new CT scanner designed for ultra-low radiation dosage and a fast workflow.

The Aquilon PRIME CT system is the latest addition to Toshiba’s line of CT products. It was designed for facilities that perform a variety of advanced applications with the lowest radiation exposure possible.

“The system can generate 160 unique slices per rotation, enhancing MPR and 3D-rendered images,” according to a company press release.

Toshiba’s proprietary dose checking software is said to improve awareness of the radiation levels being administered. The unit’s high-speed rotation and fast reconstruction allows for shorter scan times and therefore less radiation exposure, according to the release.
