Toshiba surpasses 20,000 CT systems milestone

Toshiba America Medical Systems : 28 November, 2007  (New Product)
Toshiba Medical Systems has reached a production milestone by producing its 20,000th CT system.
The 20,000th CT unit, an Aquilion 64, will be showcased at the Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) annual meeting held in Chicago, USA.

'This milestone event is the culmination of years of innovation by Toshiba's engineers based on the needs of our customers,' said Doug Ryan, senior director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba. 'Through our commitment to leading innovation, we are constantly seeking to improve healthcare worldwide, and look forward to more milestones ahead.'

Toshiba's advancement of CT technology is demonstrated in the KLAS Top 20: 2007 Mid-Year Report. In the report, Toshiba's Aquilion 64-slice CT system was ranked first among all 64-slice CT systems, receiving the highest score in three out of four categories. Additionally, 100 percent of Aquilion 64 respondents said they would purchase the product again and would recommend the product to a colleague. Toshiba's Aquilion 16-slice CT system was ranked second overall in CT, with 100 percent of the respondents saying they would recommend the product.

With the development of Toshiba's first Aquilion multi-slice CT system, the company created Quantum Advantage detector technology, which offers the industry's thinnest slices (0.5mm) across all its CT systems.

Building on this platform, Toshiba has been able to offer the same 0.5mm slice thickness across the board, from the Aquilion 4 to the Aquilion 64. The Quantum Advantage ensures that whether physicians are doing a routine chest CT on the Aquilion 16-slice or a cardiac study on the 64-slice, consistent, high-quality images will be produced.
