Published: Monday, March 31, 2014 11:23 a.m. CDT

To make CT exams as fast, safe and accurate as possible for patients, Greater Regional Medical Center recently installed the Aquilion PRIME CT system from Toshiba America Medical Systems.

Aquilion PRIME provides faster exams at achievable doses, while producing high-quality images required for accurate diagnoses. 

“The speed of the Aquilion PRIME enables our clinicians to obtain critical patient information for enhanced diagnoses faster than before,” said JR Rockhold, Greater Regional Medical Center radiology director.

“The design of the Aquilion PRIME allows us to successfully image a range of patients, from pediatric to bariatric, to further improve patient safety and comfort in our community. Our team is proud to have the most current state of the art technology to ensure the highest quality care and service for our patients.”

The Aquilion PRIME’s large bore opening offers a more spacious feeling for patients, while a higher table weight limit expands the range of patients who can be imaged.

In addition, the Aquilion PRIME comes standard with industry-leading dose-reduction software.
