December 4, 2013 - Healthcare providers can now deliver safer CT exams with solutions that enable image acquisition at lower doses by calculating the minimum radiation exposure required for every exam
Toshiba Medical Systems’ AIDR 3D is Toshiba’s third-generation iterative dose reconstruction software that incorporates system enhancements by reducing radiation dose compared to conventional scanning. AIDR 3D can also be integrated with SUREExposure 3D, a software that calculates the minimum radiation exposure required for every exam. SUREExposure 3D adjusts the dose for each patient based on a preset, targeted level of image quality, making it easy to use on all exams.
It helps Toshiba CT customers achieve the As Low As Reasonably Achievable (ALARA) principle, while still producing the image quality needed for accurate diagnoses.
Toshiba's advanced dose reduction technology, Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D), comes standard on all new Aquilion CT systems: Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition, Aquilion ONE, Aquilion Premium, Aquilion PRIME, Aquilion RXL and Aquilion LB.
Toshiba is showcasing its Aquilion product line and AIDR 3D technology at this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, Dec. 1–6, 2013 (Booth #7330, North Hall).
