The cancer care center at Great River Medical Center in West Burlington, Iowa, recently selected Toshiba’s Aquilion Large Bore CT system to minimize the constraints imposed by standard bore CTs on its treatment plans. The hospital will utilize the Toshiba solution to treat oncology patients, including breast, prostate, and colon cancer patients. It will also enable physicians to treat patients with IMRT.
The Toshiba Aquilion Large Bore CT system has a bore opening of 90 cm and 70 cm acquired field-of-view. This large field-of-view and bore opening enable more patient positions to be imaged within the acquired field-of-view. Patients can be positioned, for example, with their arms over their head or their legs in a frog leg position.
