Complex, is very pleased with the new technology. “This CT Scan boosts with AIDR-3D Integrated Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction works together with Sure Exposure 3D on the system. This ensures that the best image quality will always be achieved, with the least possible radiation exposure to the patient according to the ALARA principle. This CT Scan system not only modulates MA but also boasts Sure KV and modulates it according to the patient size.” One of the greatest challenges in computed tomography is the interpretation of routine scans in patients with metallic implants. The artefacts caused by the presence of metal can severely obscure nearby structures, making clinical diagnosis difficult or even impossible. Toshiba’s innovative SEMAR (Single-Energy Metal Artefact Reduction) overcomes this. Its high technology employs a sophisticated reconstruction algorithm to eliminate artefacts caused by metal

while improving visualisation of the implants, its supporting bone and adjacent soft tissues for an accurate diagnosis. “We are sure this new CT Scan system will not only improve the workflow and reduce patient waiting lists, but also offer additional examinations like Cardiac CT, CT Colonography and CT Digital Subtraction Angiography,” said Polaki Mokatsane.
