PERFORMANCE THAT MATTERS Astelion Advance Edition is the only entry level multislice CT system in the industry offering the same superb Adaptive Iterative Dose Reconstruction technique (AIDR 3D) as implemented in our elite CT systems. The 16-row Astelion Advance Edition incorporates 0.5 mm Quantum Detector technology for acquiring true isotropic voxels and has a FOV of 50 cm.
The “green” (ECO) addition of the Astelion series to the Toshiba CT scanners will open new possibilities in medical imaging. To protect the environment and improve the quality of life, Astelion Advance Edition reduces carbon footprint and lowers medical radiation exposure.

AIDR 3D (ADAPTIVE ITERATIVE DOSE REDUCTION 3D)
AIDR 3D is a sophisticated algorithm that has been designed to work in both the raw data and reconstruction domains. The collective AIDR 3D process results in robust noise reduction, which is essential for achieving ultra low-dose examinations in routine clinical imaging. This iterative algorithm is superior to non-iterative approaches in removing background noise while preserving diagnostic information.
