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.
