Aquilion 64 CT for Spire Roding

Toshiba account executive Colin Pellow with paramedical services manager Carl Smith, cross sectional lead radiographer Angela Birbeck, CT radiographer Mohammed Mahmoodi and MRI radiographer Charles Fapphunda.


A Toshiba Aquilion 64 CT scanner system is now up and running at the Spire Roding Hospital in Redbridge, East London as part of a £4.6m ongoing investment programme.


Featuring multi-detector CT technologies and a 64-row Quantum detector, it enables high-speed, high-resolution imaging with the lowest noise and superior anatomical coverage.  The system is able to acquire 64 simultaneous slices of 0.5 mm with each 400-millisecond gantry revolution, resulting in precise isotropic imaging of any region of the body during a breath-hold of less than ten seconds.
