INSTINX drives faster throughput and higher productivity while ensuring a level of consistency that is the hallmark of any successful diagnostic imaging business.

Innovative hardware solutions for workflow efficiency and patient comfort

Hardware innovations such as 80-cm wide-bore gantry, inbuilt positioning cameras, smart touch screen controls and Tech Assist Lateral Slide allow patient setup to be provided quickly and with the utmost care.

Instinctive User Experience

INSTINX incorporates automated features in support of optimal productivity. Aquilion Serve SP features automatic scan planning to automatically plan all routine scans including scan ranges and dose and exposure settings, using the unique 3D Landmark Scan and the AI-enabled Anatomical Landmark Detection technology.

3D Landmark Scan

Take the guesswork out of the scan planning with the axial image preview provided by the 3D Landmark Scan, an ultra-low dose helical scan using SilverBeam Filter that replaces traditional scout views.

Automatic Scan Planning

The scan planning step in INSTINX is performed using a human avatar encoded with anatomical start and end positions for all routine exams. These same landmarks are identified in the patient's 3D Landmark Scan data using AI-assisted Anatomical Landmark Detection (ALD) technology to provide highly accurate and fully automatic scan planning.

Robust cardiac CT examinations - automated, adaptive and easy

To support the increased demand for cardiac imaging with CT, Aquilion Serve SP incorporates the SURECardio engine, encoded with the experience of thousands of cardiac examinations, ensuring scan and exposure parameters adapt exactly to your patients in real time.


The Canon Medical Systems advantage

SURECardio Prospective: Faster scan for reduced contrast requirements and superior temporal uniformity.


Helical Arrhythmia Detection⁠

With Aquilion Serve SP Cardio Prospective Adaptive diagnostic scan mode, the system will begin the acquisition prospectively, and if an arrhythmia is detected, it will automatically switch to a continuous mode in order to ensure a diagnostic exam.
SURECardio Demo

Automated bone subtraction and/or iodine mapping.

SURESubtraction CT

In CTA examinations Angiography SURESubtraction CT (SCT) has the ability to remove bone, calcium and stents from data sets allowing clinicians an unobstructed view of the arteries.
Moreover, SURESubtraction can create iodine mapping SURESubtraction CT (SCT) to enable the assessment of the distribution of contrast media within the body to visualize local perfusion.

SURESubtraction SCT has protocol integrated automation at every step to empower even a novice operator with the skills to perform brilliantly the first time — every time.

Prior to subtraction, Canon Medical Systems' deformable registration allows pixel matching between the pre-contrast and contrast enhanced data for precise digital subtraction and iodine mapping, saving time and improving diagnostic accuracy.
