Toshiba’s CT Myocardial Perfusion Imaging Technology FDA Cleared
March 14, 2014
Toshiba received FDA clearance to introduce its CT Myocardial Perfusion technology, now being made available on the company’s flagship CT scanners, the Aquilion ONE and Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition.
CT Myocardial Perfusion allows the diagnosis of myocardial ischemia by visualizing the flow of blood within the coronary vasculature. Toshiba will be showing off the new package on its 320-detector-row CT scanners at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in Washington, D.C. later this month.
From the info page:
- Whole-heart acquisition in a single temporally uniform value.
- Accurate diagnosis: Myocardial Perfusion combined with coronary CTA can accurately asses myocardial perfusion and identify the coronary arteries responsible for ischemia.
- Ultra-low dose: All required perfusion data can be obtained by just one scan.
