TUSTIN, Calif., 21 Nov. 2006. Toshiba's computed tomography (CT) scanner, the Aquilion LB, has been selected to serve Lockheed Martin's non-destructive testing program (NDT) in Palmdale, Calif. The scanner will be used to ensure the integrity and reliability of aircraft parts.

Toshiba's Aquilion LB was chosen for its large-bore opening and large field-of-view (FOV). The Aquilion LB boasts a 90 cm opening -- allowing the system to image larger objects with one scan. In addition, the system's 70 cm acquired FOV ensures that the entire object is imaged and eliminates the need to scan items in pieces and then reassemble the images for review.

With the industry's largest bore opening of 90 cm and a 70 cm acquired FOV, the Aquilion LB makes it possible to accurately scan components of various sizes to identify damage and evaluate integrity.
