Aquilion ONE dynamic volume computed tomography system, manufactured and submitted by Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. (Tustin, CA).

The Aquilion ONE dynamic volume computed tomography system reduces diagnosis time from hours or days to minutes.
It can image up to 16 cm in a single rotation, and show dynamic movement. Its comprehensive exam reduces the need for other tests.

TUSTIN, Calif
., July 29, 2009 — Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc’s Aquilion® ONE was named a Gold winner in the Medical Design Excellence Awards, an award organized by Canon Communications and sponsored by the company’s Medical “Device and Diagnostic Industry” magazine.
The world’s first dynamic volume CT system received a Gold award in the Radiological and Electromechanical Devices category.
The Medical Design Excellence Awards are the premier awards for the medical technology industry.

The Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) were created to recognize the achievement of medical device manufacturers, their suppliers and the many people behind the scenes — engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians — who are responsible for creating innovative products that are changing the face of healthcare.
MDEA-winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit, and cost-effectiveness in manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

“Being named a Gold winner at the Medical Design Excellence Awards recognizes Toshiba’s commitment to creating innovative products that improve healthcare,” said Doug Ryan, senior director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba.
“This award demonstrates the breakthrough nature of the Aquilion ONE and the research, engineering and product development expertise behind it.”

Developed by Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation, the Aquilion ONE dynamic volume CT is the only medical imaging system that can image an entire organ like the brain or heart in one rotation, and show real-time function, including blood flow and movement, in less time than traditional multi-detector row CT systems.
It also uses less radiation than traditional multi-detector row CT systems and allows for imaging with limited-to-no patient sedation.

The Medical Design Excellence Awards


The Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition is the premier awards program for the medical technology community, recognizing the achievements of medical product manufacturers and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare.

 
 
The program is open worldwide to companies and individuals involved in the design, engineering, manufacture, or distribution of finished medical devices or medical packaging.

Awards are offered in each of the following 10 categories, and may be offered in additional subcategories as determined by the jurors.

• Critical-care and emergency medicine products.

• Dental instruments, equipment, and supplies.

• Finished packaging.

• General hospital devices and therapeutic products.

• Implant and tissue-replacement products.

• In vitro diagnostics (biochemicals for diagnostic use, related instrumentation, and home-use devices).

• Over-the-counter and self-care products.

• Radiological and electromechanical devices (diagnostic imaging devices, energy-emitting therapy devices).

• Rehabilitation and assistive-technology products (healthcare furnishings, patient-transfer equipment, and home-use medical equipment and supplies).

• Surgical equipment, instruments, and supplies.

All entered products must be commercially available—able to be ordered or purchased—by December 31 of the year prior to the competition.
The entry period for the MDEA competition runs from early November through mid-January. Entry fees differ according to the date on which the entry is submitted.

Each year’s MDEA-winning products are publicly announced in the April issue of “Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry” magazine.
MDEA winners receive gold- or silver-level awards at a special ceremony during the Medical Design & Manufacturing East Conference and Exposition, held in New York City each June.

Fast Definitive Diagnosis From Toshiba's Aquilion ONE Allows St. Elizabeth Medical Center Physicians To Prevent Stroke In ER Patient


Physicians Use Aquilion ONE's Comprehensive Exam to Detect Life-Threatening Narrowed Right Carotid Artery and Begin Planning Treatment;
Diagnosis Made in One Hour


TUSTIN, Calif., March 10, 2009/PRNewswire/ — Patient Pamela Louderback had been experiencing dizzy spells for months and arrived at St. Elizabeth Medical Center's emergency room (ER) after blacking out one morning at work.

Unbeknownst to her and her doctors, she was on the verge of suffering a stroke.
Standard medical treatment would have included a battery of tests to diagnose her condition over multiple days – a timetable that can prove fatal or debilitating for patients on the verge of stroke.

Fortunately for Louderback, St. Elizabeth used the world's first dynamic volume CT system, the Aquilion® ONE, to diagnose her condition within an hour and prevent a stroke from occurring at all.
The system is capable of using one X-ray rotation to image an entire organ and show organ function over time.

Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.'s Aquilion ONE is ideally suited for detecting neurovascular conditions quickly. It uses 320 ultra-high resolution detector rows to capture up to 16 cm of coverage, enough to image the entire brain or heart and show organ movement.

St. Elizabeth physicians used the Aquilion ONE to detect that the patient's right carotid artery was 90 percent occluded, which significantly reduced blood flow to the brain.
By diagnosing this condition within the hour, physicians immediately planned stent treatment to open the artery passage, preventing a stroke.

"Toshiba's Aquilion ONE allowed us to accurately diagnose the patient quickly, dramatically improving her quality of life," explained Dr. Jeff Dardinger, director of imaging, Vascular Institute, St. Elizabeth Medical Center, who interpreted Louderback's images.
"Without dynamic volume CT, the patient would have undergone a series of tests for two-to-four days, at a minimum, to uncover the occlusion. Being able to diagnose the patient within an hour allowed us to plan treatment immediately and prevent a stroke from occurring."

"I truly believe this system saved my life," explained Louderback.
"I had several exams over the past few months, none of which could detect why I was having dizzy spells. It wasn't until I was imaged in the ER using the Aquilion ONE could a definitive answer be found."

Introduced in November 2007, dynamic volume CT scans an entire organ in a single pass and produces 4D videos that show an organ's structure, its movement and blood flow.
In comparison, a 64-slice, 128-slice or 256-slice CT scan can only capture a portion of an organ in a single pass, requiring physicians to "stitch together" multiple scans of an organ to get a full image.
The new technology helps reduce multiple exposures to radiation and exam time.

Designed for today's healthcare environment, the Aquilion ONE reduces overall healthcare costs and streamlines diagnosis by replacing several tests with a single comprehensive exam.
The Aquilion ONE's single exam helps reduce unnecessary testing, as well as the accompanying accumulative radiation and contrast dose.

"The Aquilion ONE can dramatically improve patient care by providing a fast, comprehensive exam for patients suffering from life-threatening conditions, like stroke and heart attack, while helping to lower healthcare cost," explained Doug Ryan, senior director, CT Business Unit, Toshiba.
"St. Elizabeth Medical Center is an excellent example of where the Aquilion ONE enabled physicians to diagnose and treat a patient before a serious stroke occurred."
