Morriston Hospital, Swansea, has acquired a Toshiba Aquilion One CT scanner to replace an Aquilion S16.  The new system includes advanced applications such as single rotation cardiac scanning, 4D body perfusion, 4D neuro perfusion and dual energy software.


CT superintendent Patricia John said: “We were used to the intuitive Toshiba CT platform and the new Aquilion One complements our Aquilion 64 system.  We found we were covering advanced applications such as dual energy in the first week of applications training.


“We chose the Aquilion One as we feel it is the most capable cardiac system on the market.”
