The system features are; 160-mm-wide area detector, station, gantry and patient couch operation controls, image reconstruction, high-speed volume scan, high-quality images, selectable image slice thickness, dual-monitor system, improved image diagnosis functions, high-speed volume data workflow, exposure reduction, ECG-gated scan and reconstruction, and SUREFluoro. The CT cardiac function analysis software is used to analyze cardiac function using data obtained by performing cardiac MPR processing for ECG-gated scan data according to the cardiac axis. Aquilion ONE is a dynamic volume CT system that supports whole-body scanning. This 320-detector row system generates 640 slices per rotation using the coneXact reconstruction algorithm. In addition, the high-speed rotation mechanism and the fast reconstruction unit of the system allow the rapid image acquisition to further improve throughput in CT examinations.
