The Most Powerful CT Scanner Now At Millard Suburban Hospital

Released: 12/3/2012

Millard Fillmore Suburban Hospital’s radiology department is pleased to announce the up­grade of its diagnostic equipment with the most powerful CT scanner available in the world.

The Aquilion ONE™ 320 CT from Toshiba, provides radiologists with images that are unsurpassed in resolution and clinical detail. The new CT scanner captures dynamic processes such as blood flow and organ function of the heart, brain, joints and other parts of the body in real-time three-dimensional (3D) clarity.

“The Toshiba Aquilion 320 CT scanner represents the newest generation of imaging technology allowing for the highest resolution with the most rapid scan times in the marketplace,” said Kenneth D. Pearsen, M.D., Chief of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Kaleida Health.  “The Aquilion 320 additionally provides the most comprehensive vascular and stroke imaging in the marketplace, combined with dose reduction software which is the first of its kind in Western New York.”

This new piece of equipment is capable of producing real time 3-D images of the body’s organs in less than a heartbeat, dramatically shortening the diagnosis of cardiac conditions, stroke, cancers and other anomalies. 

Patients presenting to Millard Fillmore Suburban that require imaging will continue to receive the best technology.  Now, with a faster scan and diagno­sis, treatment can begin even quicker than before.  Having this high powered diagnostic tool at Suburban will also reduce the number of inpatients that need transportation to other Kaleida facilities during their stay, when special testing is required.
