Canon Medical Features Innovative CT Capabilities at ACC 2019
New Orleans, March 15, 2019 – From November 2011 – June 20131, approximately 12,200 patients underwent transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) across 299 hospitals in the U.S. alone. As the number of interventional procedures continues to grow, the AquilionTM ONE / GENESIS Edition and Aquilion Prime SP from Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. offer scan modes to help plan minimally invasive structural heart procedures effectively and efficiently. To improve workflow for advanced CTA scans while reducing radiation dose, the systems offer Volumetric Scan Mode that enables providers to acquire anatomical and functional data in a single heartbeat, as well as three phase Variable Helical Pitch (vHP3)*, which automatically changes from an ECG-gated to a non-ECG-gated acquisition during a single helical scan.
The Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition and Aquilion Prime SP are part of Canon Medical’s suite of Collaborative Imaging tools which deliver clarity and confidence when supporting diagnoses and planning interventional cardiac treatments. Collaborative Imaging provides a complete, integrated solution that helps medical practitioners address structural heart disease at every stage in the process — from evaluation to treatment, offering a wide range of intelligent scanning features and analysis for confident diagnosis and treatment.
“The robust cardiac information delivered by these systems provides precise 3D delineation of heart structures to help clinicians diagnose and plan minimally invasive treatments that may result in less pain, lower costs, a shorter hospital stay and fewer complications for the patient,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “We know from our customer feedback that these imaging systems deliver the capabilities clinicians need to improve patient care. And with the growth of minimally invasive cardiac treatments, we’re helping clinicians keep the pace with this growing trend in the marketplace.”
Canon Medical is showcasing its innovative CT technology at this American College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in New Orleans, March 16 – 18, 2019 (Booth #531).
