The Toshiba Aquilion 16 Slice CT system is a third generation multi-slice helical CT scanner, featuring a 60kW generator, 7.5MHU tube and a fast gantry rotation time of 0.5 seconds.  In helical mode it is capable of acquiring 16 parallel rows of data per rotation, with collimations of 16 x 0.5mm, 16 x 1 and 16 x 2 mm.

This refurbished Toshiba Aquilion 16 CT scanner offers the fastest gantry rotation in its class with reconstruction time up to 0.10 seconds. It can deliver a whole body CT scan quickly with reduced distortion that provides the radiologist with the ability to make a fast, accurate diagnosis. It also includes Toshiba’s SUREStart technology, which begins the scan when the image contrast reaches its target area while using the lowest dose possible

The Aquilion 16 is a development of the Toshiba Multi 4-slice system.  The main hardware difference between the two is that the Aquilion 16 is capable of acquiring 16 rows of data per rotation instead of 4. There are also improvements in the computer hardware used, and in the techniques for reconstructing images from helical data, based upon the 3-dimensional Feldkamp back-profection method.
