Taking Your Technology Further

More Positions, More Possibilities

Aquilion LBAquilion LB is the only system that combines the largest bore and true FOV to cover more anatomy with greater accuracy.

  • 90 cm gantry bore opening allows uncompromised patient positioning
  • 70 cm acquired FOV achieves 40% more diagnostic coverage
  • 85 cm* extended FOV


Leap Into the Next Dimension

The Aquilion LB system supports state-of-the-art oncology applications, including 4D respiratory gated CT simulation for advanced motion management and radiation therapy planning.

  • Acquire prospective respiratory gated images
  • Enable retrospective gating with 4D acquisition mode
  • Image tumor volume in the correct dimension
  • Increase tracking accuracy and reproducibility of tumor volume
  • Phase average reconstruction provides range of motion tracking in a single image




Largest acquired Field of View
The 16 slice Aquilion LB features the industry`s largest gantry aperture of 90 cm and the industry`s largest scan field of 70 cm, covering more anatomy with greater accuracy ever seen before.

The unique 70 cm scan field, up to 40 percent greater than other large bore CT systems, ensures superior image quality across the entire image and eliminating hidden anatomical areas for improved diagnoses, simulation and planning. Only the Aquilion LB delivers a true Field of View of 70 cm without requiring extrapolation algorithms by virtue of Toshiba`s renowned Quantum Detector
