Scientific and technological progress is very apparent in cardiology. In only a few years a significant number of new developments have emerged. As a company committed to R&D, Toshiba has played a major role in the advancement of cardiac technology to establish today's standard.

Toshiba has a long history of leading innovations since the development of the first X-ray tube back in 1914 to the Dynamic Volume Imaging technology of today.

Following the Made for Life commitment, patients are the primary focus of our technology innovations. Whether giving surgical teams better access to perform complex cardiac procedures or, giving patients the option to complete needed MR exams when contrast is contra-indicated, this commitment to help improve cardiac patient care spans across all our modalities.

Examples are the world's first Dynamic Volume CT scanner – the Aquilion ONE – that is both the latest step in the natural progression of multislice imaging and a quantum leap that will carry CT imaging into the future. Or – in Ultrasound – the new Artida that provides unprecedented image quality, ultra-fast and straightforward 4D volume navigation and advanced wall motion assessment.

Computed Tomography

The Aquilion ONE is Toshiba's unique, world's first dynamic volume CT system. The wide coverage provided by the 16cm detector, with 320 detector rows, enables cardiologists to capture the entire heart in as little as one rotation for coronary analysis, or over a single heartbeat to include complete functional diagnosis. Each reconstructed 3D volume represents exactly the same phase of the coronary arteries with homogenous contrast enhancement.


Artida brings best-of-breed cardiac 4D imaging to everyday clinical use. Its intuitive SmartSlice functions allow you to cut, slice and position your 4D volume quickly and conveniently. Also the powerful combination of the Artida and the innovative 3D Wall Motion Tracking technology offers new functions. 4D echo and the quantification of the LV function become so simple and intuitive that they will change your way of routine diagnostics.

Interventional Imaging

Interventional x-ray system such as the cardiac angiography system plays an important role providing clinical information to the cardiologist to decide which treatment will provide the maximum benefits to the patient. The angiography system can be manipulated virtually in any angle around the patient, viewing the coronary vessels from various angles to determine the diseased artery and to be treated, for instance by placing a stent to restore the flow. Although Toshiba Infinix-i provides customer with various sizes of flat panel detector (FPD), but the 8" x 8" FPD is dedicated for cardiac procedures.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a diagnostic method in which a magnetic field and radio frequencies are employed to visualize internal structures, without the use of radiation.
