August 20, 2010 -- Toshiba Medical Systems Europe has introduced its adaptive iterative dose reduction (AIDR) technology, designed to reduce radiation dose by as much as 75% compared to conventional scanners.

The technology is available with Toshiba's Aquilion One, Aquilion Premium edition, and all 64-detector-row CT scanners.

Images processed with AIDR technology show enhanced image quality with lower noise levels compared to standard protocols using identical dose, Toshiba said. The AIDR technology is adaptive and automatically calculates the optimized number of iterations for any acquisition, according to the company.

Toshiba plans to showcase the technology at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Congress in Stockholm at the end of August.
