Toshiba highlights SureFluoro technology

Toshiba America Medical Systems is showcasing its Aquilion 32 CT scanner equipped with SureFluoro automated scan technology at this week’s annual scientific meeting of the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) in Phoenix.

Designed for minimally invasive CT fluoroscopy procedures, SureFluoro collects 24 images per second in real-time for improved interventional accuracy, and provides continuous display of three side-by-side images to aid localization, according to the Tustin, CA-based vendor.

In addition to SureFluoro, Aquilion 32 includes additional CT fluoroscopy utilities such as a 72-cm gantry opening and a gantry-tilting ability that allows operators to get closer to the patient during interventional procedures, according to Toshiba. The vendor said it has also incorporated an external tilting laser for needle guidance, as well as software to record procedures that don’t require switching of scan operations to provide playback of key images.
