Toshiba's Encore VeloCT Console Receives FDA Clearance
Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. announced the availability of VeloCT. This console upgrade includes new enhancements for patient safety, dose management and workflow for existing Aquilion 32, Aquilion 64 and Aquilion CX CT systems manufactured between 2006 and 2012. The VeloCT console includes multiple dose reduction technologies and dose management tools. The Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D) software reduces radiation dose compared to conventional scanning. It is an algorithm designed to work in both the raw data and image data space, reducing noise to maintain image quality. NEMA XR 25 Dose Check Software enhances user awareness of the radiation dose and includes Dose Alert and Dose Notification, addressing the two main components of MITA’s CT Dose Check Initiative. In addition, the VeloCT console includes advanced hardware that enables accelerated workflow, improving clinical and operational capabilities. For more information, click here.
