Revolutionizing Patient Care in Oceania – A New Era with Canon Angio-CT and High- Definition Imaging

On Monday, 26 June, Canon Medical supported the launch of the new Canon Alphenix 4D CT (Angio-CT) at a tertiary hospital in central Sydney, Australia. This groundbreaking promises to redefine patient outcomes and revolutionize treatment across interventional radiology, interventional oncology and trauma.
The launch event showcased the efficient workflow, superb mechanical design, and unrivaled patient access of the system and its clinical benefits. The tertiary hospital in central Sydney is the first Australian site to install this state-of-the-art system. They will benefit from the combination of the Alphenix Sky + with High-Definition flat panel detector and the Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition CT scanner, the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, and the first in the Asia Pacific region outside of Japan.

Interventional Radiology Society of Australasia (IRSA)

Following the Alphenix 4D CT launch, Canon Medical supported the Interventional Radiology Society of Australasia (IRSA) conference.

The most important interventional radiology conference in ANZ, the IRSA conference attracts attendees from APEC nations, the United States, and Europe. The primary focus for the congress is to improve the quality and range of procedures in interventional radiology and promote recognition and further development of the specialty. This year the conference focused on innovative new technology, including the values of Alphenix 4D CT, interventional oncology and women in interventional radiology.
Prof. Tay Kiang Hiong (Singapore General Hospital) hosted a workshop titled “4D-CT: Revolutionizing Interventional Radiology”, where he shared his experience of how the Canon Alphenix 4D CT improves the efficiency of procedures and how unique innovations like Dynamic Volume CT can increase clinical confidence by allowing clinicians to assess perfusion during procedures.

“As a sponsor of the IRSA conference, we recognise the significance of this event in driving transformative change in the field of interventional radiology (IR). The IRSA conference serves as a unique platform for IR professionals and industry leaders to converge. The advancements, education, and collaboration on display at this year’s event will help drive the use of groundbreaking techniques and technologies and Alphenix 4D CT can play an important role in this. We are proud to be a part of this event that strives to make a lasting impact on the health and well-being of patients, and the standing and importance of interventional radiology“- Mr. Ricky Davidson, Canon Medical Systems ANZ VL BU Manager. //
