A new CT Scanner has been installed at Timberland Medical Centre.
The new 160 slice Toshiba CT Scan is faster and and reduces exposure dose. The key word for dose reduction is AIDR – adaptive iterative dose reduction. This is facilitated by a completely new iterative reconstruction algorithm: AIDR reduces the dose by up to 75%. Additionally, image noise can be reduced by up to 50%, which visibly increases image quality and therefore eases clinical evaluation.
