vHP3*—Variable Helical Parameters

Overall faster scan times make vHP3 compliant to the needs of the patient, and shorten exam times for trauma imaging when every second is critical.
With this technology, a single series reconstruction enables several studies to be interpreted simultaneously for faster scans when every second counts.
vHP3 may also help you:
  • Decrease radiation dose
  • Decrease the amount of IV contrast needed
  • Improve the workflow of complex clinical exams


Easy Patient Positioning

Aquilion Prime SP’s accessible gantry and couch have been designed for enhanced comfort, particularly for bariatric patients or those who are elderly and living with cancer.


Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition

Transforming CT and Oncology care

Clinically-focused research and technological developments have culminated in a CT system that reduces dose and simplifies workflows for tumor visualization and assessment.

System Highlights:
  • Up to 16 cm z-axis coverage
  • 0.5 mm × 320 PUREViSION detector row
  • 0.275 sec rotation
