Computed Tomography System
Toshiba Corporation Design Center (Susumu Ogiwara, Tomiaki Ishihara, Junya Suzuki), Japan
When developing the Scanner Alexion TSX-032A, every effort was made to reduce patient stress to the greatest extent possible during the examination. This was accomplished by giving the device more compact measurements, a soft U-shape and an attractive colour scheme. The interface enables easy monitoring of the workflow, thus also allowing untrained personnel to perform scans easily and accurately.
Statement by the jury
»The U-shape cleverly directs attention to the tube opening, creating a friendly and inviting impression. The scanner is thus particularly suitable for anxious patients. «
