Procedure:

The Aquilion One Prism 640-slice CT Scan is the world’s first dynamic volume CT scanner. It is the fastest scanner and has 320 detectors and gives a 640 slice view of the organs. It captures an image in less than a second, provides superior 3D images and lowers exposure to radiation when compared with conventional scanners.

The Aquilion One Prism 640-slice CT Scan images the entire heart in less than one-third of a second and takes an image in between two heart beats. It covers the whole heart in one rotation, thus makes it feasible for cardiac perfusion studies. The coronary CT and an entire aortogram can be done together.

The Aquilion One Prism 640-slice CT Scan also identifies diseases like cancer at an early stage providing an opportunity for better treatment. Abdominal, neck, brain and lower extremity angiograms can be done rapidly with 4D DSA with more precision, contrast and less radiation.

Major Indications:

The Aquilion One Prism 640 Slice CT Scanner makes non-invasive precise assessment possible for many specialities such as Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology, Gastroenterology and Paediatrics.

Highlights:

  • Scans organs that are within 16 cm size in one rotation.
  • Accurate assessment for post cardiac surgery, checking the status of coronary stents and bypass grafts.
  • Extremities can be scanned by just sitting on a chair at the back of the gantry and placing the limb into the opening.
  • Helps in early detection of cancer.
  • The wide open bore accommodates obese patients up to 315 kg of body weight.
  • Scans patient faster with significantly lesser radiation dose.
  • Smooths out artefacts from any metallic prosthesis, thus providing informative and accurate images for the radiologist to interpret.
