Fast 3D Mode

"Fast 3D shortens imaging time while maintaining high quality images comparable to those offered by conventional techniques, contributing to work-flow improvements in routine medical care. It also delivers improved image quality without extending imaging time when compared to existing FASE3D."

k-t SPEEDER

"Cardiomyopathy revealed severe systolic dysfunction on k-t SPEEDER cine images. There was full-thickness late gadolinium enhancement of the entire inferior wall, inferolateral walls of the left ventricle.”

WFS DIXON

“With WFS1 we have been able to achieve stable fat suppression which has improved the visibility of the lesion and as a result the scan time has become more efficient.”

-Dr. Akihiko Arakawa, Department of Radiology, Saiseikai Kumamoto Hospital, Japan

Quick Star

“Quick Star allows us to obtain high resolution 3D T1 WI with free breathing and is very useful for visualizing the lesion in the abdominal area of the patient who has difficulty to hold their breath.”

MultiBand SPEEDER

“MultiBand Diffusion Sequence has reduced our clinical scan times by half compared to the traditional Spin Echo Diffusion for Abdominal Regions. Moreover, the new multiband sequence has helped reduce artifacts in areas of high susceptibility such as air and bone while overall improving ADC maps.”

Quantitative and qualitative reports

“Olea Sphere modules can be intuitively handled, so you can opt for additional quantitative analysis beyond pure imaging interpretations.”

-Roland Wiest, MD, PhD, Inselspital, Universitätsspital, Bern, Switzerland

Olea Nova™+

“Olea Nova+ allows for the Realtime tissue characterization of lesions in the prostate by only changing the calculated TE value on Olea Sphere. Olea Nova Plus of the prostate enhances the clinical confidence since the calculated TE values/images can be calculated retrospectively. This New Clinical feature from Canon Medical changes the way of evaluating cancers of the prostate while reducing the overall examination time.”

Cardiac Solutions

“In cardiac MRI, T1 mapping allows us to evaluate the myocardial tissue properties quantitatively. Even for diffuse lesion that are difficult to be evaluated with LGE, we can evaluate in absolute value with T1 mapping. Therefore, it contributes to the improvement of the diagnostic ability and give additional values to the image diagnosis.”

T1 Mapping

“ T1 Mapping allows us to identify the pathologic area without the injection of contrast. In general, a prolonged native myocardial T1 signal is encountered in various disease states that result in edema or fibrosis, and in amyloid deposition.”

Wall Motion Tracking

“With Wall Motion Tracking, local wall motion abnormalities associated with ischemia or cardiomyopathy can be evaluated using automatically calculated myocardial strain values. The presence of cardiac motion dyskinesia, which is an indication for cardiac resynchronization therapy, can also be detected by analyzing multiple myocardial strain curves. In addition, global strain, which is a useful index for prognostic assessment and treatment planning in patients with cardiac failure, can be calculated automatically using both short-axis and long-axis images."
