Better care using whole organ dynamic CT protocols.

Functional Imaging

16 cm of dynamic volume coverage allowing the acquisition of anatomical and functional data within the same acquisition and with whole organ coverage.

Adaptive Diagnostics

Helps eliminate variability in scanning with the industry's best solutions.

Lowering CT dose and improving workflow are not choices that clinicians should have to make, so Canon Medical Systems CT is putting customers first by providing the industry's best solutions to solve these challenges. To make complex exams easier, lower dose and improve diagnostic accuracy and reproducibility, Canon Medical Systems is introducing its Adaptive Diagnostics CT technology.

Automated bone subtraction and/or iodine mapping.

SURESubtraction™

In CTA examinations SURESubtraction 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 maps to enable the assessment of the distribution of contrast media within the body to visualize local perfusion.

SURESubtraction 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.

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction

SEMAR

Canon Medical Systems' SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a sophisticated iterative reconstruction technique to reduce metallic artifact, improving visualization of implants, supporting bone and the adjacent soft tissues for a clearer and more confident diagnosis. SEMAR can be set in the scan protocol so the reconstructions are fully automatic requiring no additional operator input.

Assess the whole body in one scan

Variable Helical Pitch with three phases (vHP3)

Overall faster scan times make vHP3 compliant to the needs of the patient, and shorten exam times for trauma imaging when every second is critical.
A single series reconstruction enables several studies to be interpreted simultaneously for faster reading.

  • May decrease radiation dose to the patient
  • May decrease the amount of IV contrast needed
  • May improve the workflow for complex clinical exams

vHP3 Trauma Scan

vHP3 Cardiovascular Scan

vHP3 Chest, Abdomen & Pelvis Scan

Dual Energy

Dual Energy uses two energies during one CT scan, providing clinicians with more data to help quantify and characterize anatomy and lesions. As a result, exam times and radiation dose are both reduced.

Volume Dual Energy

Taking advantage of the wide detector array of Aquillion ONE, 2 rotations are acquired at low and high kV, mA is automatically adjusted to maintain similar noise characteristics. Projections are matched with orbital synchronization and no table movement is required.

Volumetric CT with arrhythmia detection

SURECardio™

The ability to acquire volumetric cardiac CTA within one heartbeat with no table movement required. If an arrhythmia or abnormal heartbeat is detected Aquilion ONE ViSION can automatically adjust the scan and acquire the next normal heartbeat.

SURE Cardio™

Acute Stroke and Neuro

One exam with 50 cc's of contrast and 5 mSv of dose will acquire whole brain perfusion as well as a dynamic CTA with automatic bone subtraction. Entire study can be acquired in 60 seconds and with Vitrea's automatic processing, provides perfusion maps and CT DSA information ready to review in 4.5 minutes from anywhere in your network.
