Toshiba America Medical Systems has deployed its Aquilion 16 CFX CT multislice computed tomography (CT) scanner to many healthcare providers for advanced cardiac studies.

 The Johns Hopkins University Hospital in Baltimore, Long Beach Memorial Center in California and Florida Institute for Advanced Diagnostic Imaging in Port Richey, Fla., are three of many institutions using the device for clinical cardiac applications.

 The new Cardiac Function Analysis package, which consists of sophisticated and adaptive reconstruction software, enables the Aquilion 16 CFX to produce precise MPR images, volume curves and polar maps, as well as wall motion analysis and functional parameter calculations.
