A New CT Scanner for Vail Health
Vail Health Hospital uses the Toshiba Aquilion Premium CT scanner in the imaging department. Vail Health Hospital is the first hospital in Colorado to bring this 160-slice scanner to its patients. The upgraded equipment minimizes radiation exposure, maximizes safety and image quality and increases patient comfort.
Radiation exposure is automatically adjusted to minimize exposure based on a patient's age, weight and exam type. The scanner is also quicker and can examine several body parts during the same exam to reduce exam time and radiation.
The new CT uses wider detectors to cover more area and complete scans faster so less radiation is needed. It also shows contrast better than other systems so physicians can distinguish soft tissues and other details more clearly.
A longer, wider table supports larger patients and provides a more extensive area for scanning without repositioning them. Aquilion's gantry also tilts to provide easier access to patients and helps avoid unnecessary exposure to critical organs such as the eyes.
