Las Vegas imaging center debuts Toshiba 160-slice CT
Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging Center (SDMI) in Las Vegas has installed Aquilion Prime 160 series from Toshiba America Medical Systems.

The practice uses features, such as Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction (AIDR) and Nema XR 25 Dose Check software, to conduct a variety of general imaging exams while minimizing radiation dose in accordance with the As Low As Reasonably Achievable principle. SDMI will upgrade to Toshiba's recently FDA-cleared AIDR 3D software for dose reduction and image quality.

The company said its Aquilion Prime can generate 160 slices per rotation and features a 7.5-MHU large-capacity tube and 0.35-second scanning. The system also features a 78-cm aperture gantry and a 660-pound patient weight capacity couch.
