To meet the demands of its growing multi-specialty facility, The Iowa Clinic, Des Moines, USA, has installed the first Aquilion RXL from Toshiba in the USA, according to a company release. The Aquilion RXL has fast reconstruction and includes the latest dose reduction technologies.

 “The Aquilion RXL provides us with the ideal workhorse system for the majority of clinical applications, enabling our team to improve workflow and reduce patient wait times,” said Austin Lepper, administrative director, Ancillary Services, The Iowa Clinic. “In addition, AIDR 3D dramatically reduces CT dose across all exams while maintaining image quality for safer, more accurate diagnoses.”

Aquilion RXL brings the most advanced radiation dose reduction technology to a 16-detector row, 32-slice computed tomography (CT) system with Toshiba’s Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D). AIDR 3D lowers radiation dose compared with conventional scanning, aiding clinicians in accurate diagnoses and treatment planning. Additionally, Aquilion RXL incorporates Toshiba’s sophisticated suite of Sure Technologies, increasing clinical capabilities and significantly improving productivity.

“Aquilion RXL is the ideal system for healthcare facilities looking for a safe, efficient and accurate CT system, combining performance and value for everyday imaging needs,” said Satrajit Misra, senior director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba.

The Iowa Clinic recently upgraded their existing Aquilion 64 with VeloCT and installed an Aquilion PRIME 80 CT system. According to the clinic, they also use an Aquilion 16 and a 1.5T Vantage Atlas MR from Toshiba.
