To make CT exams as safe and accurate as possible for its patients, Jasper County Hospital has acquired Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc.’s Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D), the company’s newest radiation dose reduction technology, for its AquilionTM CT system. Jasper County Hospital is the first facility in the nation to have this technology.
“Toshiba’s AIDR 3D reduces radiation dose, enabling safer CT exams for patients, while maintaining the image quality needed for diagnoses,” explained Cindy Reed, RT(R)(M), Director of Radiology at Jasper County Hospital. “Combining Toshiba’s AIDR 3D software with the Aquilion scanner helps our facility provide the best possible patient care.”
AIDR 3D is Toshiba’s third-generation dose reconstruction software that reduces a patient’s exposure to radiation compared with conventional scanning. The software is designed to use the patient’s data from the scanner creating a precise quality image but still expose the patient to less radiation.
The Jasper County Hospital Radiology Department is fully equipped to perform x-rays, digital mammography, CT scans, ultrasound, nuclear medicine and MRI. For more information, call (219) 866-5141, extension 2051.
