Introducing the Asteion Super 4 multislice CT system. This new addition to
Toshiba's multislice family combines high-end detector technology and
reconstruction algorithms with an easy to use single console interface,
providing exceptional image quality for all CT examinations. Outstanding
reconstruction speed and automated MPR generation of true isotropic data
extend your diagnostic capabilities and push productivity forward.

For nearly 90 years, Toshiba has maintained a global

leadership position by manufacturing diagnostic imaging

systems to improve the quality of patient care.

In the Asteion Super 4, Toshiba brings together innovative

technologies in a single console. Featuring fast and efficient

Advanced acquisition with simple operation.
All operations have been made as simple as possible in
order to achieve this ideal.
The design maximizes both operator and patient comfort,
allowing the operator to focus on the examination rather
than system operation.

automatically performed after the data acquisition and reconstruction:

- MultiView

Auto-transfer/ Auto-archiving

With fast, thin-slice and wide range scanning the Asteion Super 4 brings a

whole new view to CT. It produces precise anatomical images, from bone

to delicate peripheral nerves, and handles the most demanding run-off

studies — providing the critical information you need to give your patients

the best diagnostic care available.

The Quantum detector leverages Toshiba's expertise in ceramic tec
to capture true isotropic images with 0.5 mm slice acquisition. This
provides clinicians with high-quality volume data sets that:
