To meet the demands of its growing multi-specialty facility, The Iowa Clinic
in West Des Moines, Iowa, installed the first Aquilion^TM RXL from Toshiba
America Medical Systems, Inc., in the U.S. The Aquilion RXL has fast
reconstruction and includes the latest dose reduction technologies.

“The Aquilion RXL provides us with the ideal workhorse system for the majority
of clinical applications, enabling our team to improve workflow and reduce
patient wait times,” said Austin Lepper, administrative director, Ancillary
Services, The Iowa Clinic. “In addition, AIDR 3D dramatically reduces CT dose

Aquilion RXL brings the most advanced radiation dose reduction technology to a
16-detector row, 32-slice CT system with Toshiba’s Adaptive Iterative Dose
Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D). AIDR 3D lowers radiation dose compared with
conventional scanning, aiding clinicians in accurate diagnoses and treatment
planning. Additionally, Aquilion RXL incorporates Toshiba’s sophisticated
suite of ^SURETechnologies, increasing clinical capabilities and significantly
improving productivity.

“Aquilion RXL is the ideal system for healthcare facilities looking for a
safe, efficient and accurate CT system, combining performance and value for
everyday imaging needs,” said Satrajit Misra, senior director, CT Business
Unit, Toshiba.
