Going beyond the evolution of dynamic volume CT with the GENESIS Edition

Our latest CT, the Aquilion ONETM GENESIS Edition received Health Canada approval on June 7, 2017. The GENESIS Edition transforms routine imaging to new levels of image detail and low contrast resolution – balanced for each clinical question at the right dose. A new standard in CT based on 10 years of clinical know-how, brought to you by the leaders in area detector technology.

Transforming MBIR from research to routine with FIRST

The GENESIS Edition provides sharper image detail and lower patient dose with the world's first fully integrated MBIR*1 solution. FIRST*2 utilizes forward projection iterations to deliver high-quality images with up to 84.6% dose reduction. A full volumetric reconstruction for routine clinical use can be obtained in just 3 minutes.

Following Toshiba Medical's longstanding philosophy of minimizing dose while maintaining efficient clinical workflow, FIRST integrates seamlessly into your daily clinical practice.

*2 Forward projected model-based Iterative Reconstruction Solution


A completely redesigned X-ray system from photon generation to beam distribution and detection is the basis of PUREViSION Optics. This results in a better balance between image quality and dose. Adaptive scatter correction removes scatter through intelligent modeling that preserves more primary photons for reconstruction as compared to a hardware-based approach.

Adaptive Diagnostics

GENESIS Edition offers a comprehensive suite of Adaptive Diagnostic solutions to make complex exams easier and to improve diagnostic precision and reproducibility.

Dynamic Volume CT – Simply efficient

More than a decade of clinical partnerships with leading institutions sets Toshiba Medical apart as the industry leader in dynamic volume CT. Together, we have developed new procedures for better patient care, automated workflows, and refined reconstruction technology to make the remarkable routine.
