Hudson, WI, March 12, 2012 – Better, faster, safer – describes the new Toshiba AquilionTM Premium CT scanner system recently installed at Hudson Hospital Imaging Center. The new scanner allows for 160-slice 3D imaging, replacing Hudson’s previous scanner with 16-slice imaging capability. It provides a greater variety of scan options including CT fluoro, to improve biopsy capabilities and faster scan times. In fact the new CT scanner is about ten times faster than the one being replaced. A wider image coverage detection area ensures better image quality at a faster rate, greatly enhancing the patient experience. Advanced image processing and dose reduction software allows about a 40% reduction in radiation dose to the patient.
