Piedmont Hospital in Atlanta has installed the Aquilion ONE from Toshiba America Medical Systems.

Toshiba’s Aquilion ONE dynamic volume CT system builds one 3D image of an entire organ in a single gantry rotation by using 320, 0.5-mm, detector rows. The CT scanner can also produce a 4D clinical video showing up to 16 cm of anatomical coverage, enough to capture the entire brain or heart and show its movement and its blood flow, the company said.

As a leading provider of cardiac services in Atlanta, the Piedmont Heart Institute will use the Aquilion ONE primarily for cardiac patients but can expand its use into other areas, including neurology.
