RSNA 2005 Booth #7114 (North Building, Hall B) CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 21, 2005--Leading the development of diagnostic imaging technologies that aid in the diagnosis of cancer, Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. (TAMS) today announced that the Aquilion(TM) Large Bore (LB) will be featured at this year's Radiological Society of North America's (RSNA) annual meeting, held Nov. 27-Dec. 2 at McCormick Place in Chicago. The system will be displayed and demonstrated in Toshiba's booth #7114 in the North Building, Hall B. The company's new large-bore, multislice computed tomography (CT) scanner delivers superior patient positioning with unmatched image quality and clinical performance.

The Aquilion LB, which received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) marketing clearance this summer, was recently installed at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston -- the first recipient of the system. The new system provides maximum patient positioning flexibility with unparalleled access to the patient.

According to Doug Ryan, director of the CT Business Unit at TAMS, the Aquilion LB allows imaging departments to immediately take advantage of Toshiba's award-winning CT technologies in a large-bore platform.

"Toshiba has dramatically expanded the dimensions of CT with the Aquilion LB," Ryan said. "The new QuantumPLUS detector and the 90 cm bore provide our customers a unique and industry-leading combination of technology that can be used more effectively in interventional and trauma applications."

With the industry's largest bore opening of 90 cm and a 70 cm acquired field-of-view, the Aquilion LB makes it possible to accurately scan patients of all sizes in various positions for unparalleled image acquisition.
