President's Message

To our valued customers, we would like to express our gratitude for your continued support and for using our products and services.


The International Technical Exhibition of Medical Imaging (ITEM), held concurrently with the largest radiological meeting in Japan, takes place every April. During the 3 days of the meeting, 20,000 or more healthcare professionals visit the venue. This year Canon's exhibition space is 1000m2 . This is the largest out of the 160 participating companies. Under the catchphrase "Made possible", Canon Group will exhibit a comprehensive range of products at the booth.

Following RSNA 2018 and ECR 2019, we are expecting that technologies utilizing AI will attract a lot of attention at ITEM 2019. It has been a year since the release of AiCE, an image reconstruction technology that utilizes AI. Developed by Canon Medical, AiCE is in use at many facilities around the world, and its clinical usefulness has been the subject of presentations at scientific meetings.

We believe that the outstanding high-resolution images created by our original technologies, including image reconstruction technologies utilizing AI, can definitely contribute to improving patient outcomes. Canon Medical will continue to provide the latest solutions for the future of diagnostic imaging.
