Toshiba Aquilion ONE 640 Slice CT Scanner


The Aquilion ONE CT scanner from Toshiba is the most advanced CT scanner in the world.


CT scanners are judged by the number of 'slices' of the body they can image with each rotation of the x-ray tube.  Most NHS scanners are 32 or 64 slice machines whereas our Aquilion ONE has 640 slices.

It is the fastest CT scanner in the world with a rotation speed of 0.275 seconds.

Its complex dose reduction software and high speed results in the lowest radiation dosage of any CT scanner.

It has the highest spatial resolution of all scanners at 0.3mm.

With a 16cm image capture it is the only scanner capable of imaging the entire heart or brain in one rotation.

It is the only scanner capable of performing dynamic imaging of moving joints.

With a 31 inch diameter bore it can accommodate larger patients in comfort.  Scans can be performed on bariatric patients up to 300kg, essential for diagnosing disease in these patients.
