Nebraska hospital taps Toshiba
Cambridge Memorial Hospital, a critical care hospital operating as part of the Tri Valley Health System in Cambridge, Neb., has installed Toshiba America Medical Systems’ Aquilion 64 CT system and Aplio XG ultrasound (US) system.

The Aquilion 64 CT delivers 0.5 mm resolution across all 64 detector rows, according to Tustin, Calif.-based Toshiba America Medical Systems. Tri Valley also utilizes noise reduction tools, such as Quantum Denoising Software (QDS) and Boost 3D, that allow image quality to be maintained at a lower dose. Tri Valley performs a variety of exams using the Aquilion 64, including basic head, neck, chest, pelvis, aorta and renal CT angiography imaging.

Tri Valley also is using the Aplio XG ultrasound system for general imaging. Clinicians are using the system for 2D applications, as well as routine and difficult-to-scan exams, including obese patients or those with fatty livers. The image quality and field-of-view of the small-parts transducer provide Cambridge Memorial Hospital with patient measurements and the capability to image thyroids, Toshiba said in a statement.
