FAQs (click to expand)
With the Aquilion ONE, it is possible to image an entire organ in a single rotation, for the first time, ensuring greater accuracy and diagnostic confidence. Physicians using the Aquilion ONE can see not only a three-dimensional depiction of an organ, but also how the organ and blood flow are dynamically functioning or moving within and around the organ. No other CT system can do this.
The Aquilion ONE can perform uniquely comprehensive exams, including functional studies, that can reduce overall healthcare costs by replacing the need for multiple tests and invasive procedures, while reducing the amount of contrast material and radiation dose.[/DDET]
The Aquilion ONE can perform multiple studies, which may replace studies conducted on several different systems, reducing the number of tests and testing time for patients.
The ability of the system to show organ function in real time is a distinct advantage. For example, a 64-slice system can show blockage, but the Aquilion ONE can show blockage and how the whole organ and surrounding blood flow are functioning.[/DDET]
