Toshiba’s (TYO:6502) American medical products division won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for the latest iteration in its Aquilon line of CT scanners.
The Aquilon Prime is designed for healthcare facilities that need to perform a wide variety of advanced clinical examinations with reduced radiation exposure, according to a press release.
"The combination of the 0.35 second gantry rotation speed and the state-of-the-art reconstruction technology allows many examinations to be performed and reconstructed in mere seconds, improving patient care and overall departmental efficiency," Toshiba’s CT business director Joseph Cooper said in prepared remarks. "That, along with standard patient safety features AIDR and NEMA XR 25 Dose Check Software, helps clinicians acquire quality images while attempting to minimize radiation dose as much as possible."
