TAMS demonstrates cardiac CT technology
Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. (TAMS) recently demonstrated its Aquilion 32 CFX utilizing the 64-row Quantum detector cardiac computed tomography (CT) technology at the 5th International Conference on Cardiac CT in Nuremberg, Germany, July 23-24.

Presented by Joao Lima, MD, Department of Medicine and Radiology, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Toshiba said the demonstration highlighted case studies and clinical images of coronary plaque and stenosis using Toshiba's Aquilion 32 CFX scanner.

Incorporating SUREWorkflow software applications designed to automate complex diagnostic cardiac studies, Toshiba's Aquilion line of CT scanners has been optimized for cardiac examinations. Additionally, Toshiba said its low-contrast 64-row Quantum detector can be used to visualize soft plaque, measuring coronary stenosis, planning quantitative treatment and calculation of plaque burden.
