Saving minutes can mean saving lives.
Sanford Health introduces the region's most advanced CT scanner. Called Aquilion ONE, the new technology provides incredibly detailed four-dimensional images of complete organs in less time than it takes for your heart to pump one beat. It was the first CT scanner of its kind in the Midwest and in the state.
The Aquilion ONE CT is the world's first dynamic volume CT system; it uses 320 ultra-high resolution detector rows (or slices) to capture up to 16 centimeters of coverage, enough to image the entire brain or heart in one rotation plus show the organ's structure, movement and blood flow.
Using a conventional CT scanner, such as 64-slice or 128-slice scanner, doctors may need to perform a series of tests to confirm a heart attack or stroke. Test results can take hours or even days. But in 20 minutes, the Aquilion ONE is able to diagnose a heart attack or stroke and can also gauge how badly tissue has been damaged so doctors can determine the proper treatment. The Aquilion ONE not only saves time, but it also helps reduce or eliminate the risks of unnecessary invasive procedures.
A conventional CT scanner has a viewing window of just a couple centimeters. To view the heart, the machine's sensors take a series of images that are built into a single, often distorted image. Think of it like trying to snap a panorama of the Grand Canyon on your camera phone, then stitching the pictures together. The Aquilion ONE can scan an entire organ in one rotation.
Aquilion ONE's high-speed scanning enables doctors to view crucial information such as blood flow and function in the heart, brain, joints and other parts of the body. These dynamic images are similar to real-time video of the organs, an incredibly helpful diagnosis tool that was previously unavailable. Aquilion ONE's dynamic images can:
