Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Imaging Center is the new home for the first Toshiba Aquilion Prime CT installed in the U.S.
Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. said Tuesday the scanner was installed in one branch of the five-center Las Vegas imaging chain. The Steinberg center will also get Toshiba's recently released AIDR 3D interative reconstruction technology, the company said.
The scanner, which received FDA clearance in February
, is the 160 series model. It can generate 160 slices per rotation, and complete a scan in about one-third of a second. An 80-slice Prime model, the 80 series, was cleared only a few weeks ago.

The Prime is also bariatric-friendly, boating a 78-centimeter aperture gallery, which Toshiba says is the biggest for a high-end CT, and a patient couch that can withstand up to 660 pounds.
