In addition, the new QuantumPLUS detector's acquired field-of-view is 40 percent greater than other large-bore CT systems. This larger field-of-view covers more diagnostic anatomy with greater accuracy for improved diagnosis and treatment.

Building on Toshiba's Quantum multi-row detector, the most sophisticated CT detector commercially available for high-speed, high-resolution imaging with the lowest noise, the QuantumPLUS detector features additional channels that provide for the 70 cm large field-of-view. The QuantumPLUS detector is the only detector to provide three different slice-width acquisitions, enabling the Aquilion LB CT to acquire isotropic images in all anatomical planes while achieving the industry's best low-contrast resolution using the lowest dose.
