BETTER CARE. SAFER IMAGING. Aquilion Lightning, our ground-breaking 16-row helical CT system for whole-body imaging, employs cutting-edge technologies to optimize patient care and accelerate clinical decision making. Innovative features ensure that high-quality isotropic images for best possible diagnosis are routinely acquired with the lowest possible patient dose. The workflow is streamlined, increasing patient throughput. And a wide range of advanced 3D and postprocessing applications provide clinical flexibility. Together, these features make Aquilion Lightning a powerful workhorse.
The Aquilion Lightning gantry features design innovations to improve the scanning experience for patients as well as providing excellent operability and ensuring safety. The spacious 780 mm wide bore and 470 mm wide couch ensure comfortable scanning for even the largest patients.

OPTIMISING THE CLINICAL WORKFLOW Aquilion Lightning is designed to handle even the busiest workloads with ease. The system’s intuitive user interface guides you step by step through the examination with modern and easy-to-understand graphics and animations. A host of intelligent functions enable a fast and efficient workflow.
NAVIGATION MODE Aquilion Lightning offers unique navigation-mode operation that guides the operator through every step of the examination with state-of-the-art computer graphics and animation. Navigation mode is perfectly suited for novice users and part-time operators who may be required to perform scanning outside normal working hours, and enables all users to take advantage of the high performance of this multislice CT system. FAST RECONSTRUCTION A newly developed reconstruction system supports a reconstruction speed of up to 15 images per second, allowing rapid diagnosis and fast patient throughput.
ADAPTIVE DIAGNOSTICS SURESubtraction and vHP (variable Helical Pitch) are Toshiba’s unique Adaptive Diagnostic Scan modes that simplify complex protocols and provide excellent results.
