Canon Medical Celebrates 30th Anniversary of Hybrid Angio-CT Technology with World’s First Deep Learning Spectral CT Reconstruction and HD 76 Technology Integration into Alphenix 4D CT System

Spectral Analysis and HD 76 High Definition Offer New Insights to Support Interventional Procedures

TUSTIN, Calif., November 28, 2022 – Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc., a global leader in innovative diagnostic imaging technology, is proud to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Hybrid Angio-CT technology at RSNA 2022. Pushing the capabilities of its Alphenix 4D CT system, CMSU announces the integration of the world’s first Deep Learning Spectral CT reconstruction and HD 76 high-definition imaging. The HD 76 high-definition detector provides more than twice the spatial resolution of conventional flat panel detectors, helping clinicians see fine details in complex interventional procedures.

Designed to take imaging capabilities to a whole new level, Deep Learning Spectral CT reconstruction offers automatically-generated monochromatic images, material-specific reconstruction, and iodine maps—requiring no additional effort or training for technologists. The fully integrated interactive spectral analysis is also available through advanced applications developed on the Vitrea platform. This provides a rich array of information to the interventional team within one room and by one system.

“We’ve continually innovated the Hybrid Angio-CT technology since we built the world’s first Hybrid Angio-CT system 30 years ago,” said Satrajit Misra, Senior VP and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “Our technology meets the evolving needs of healthcare professionals, enhancing workflow and enabling our customers to prioritize clinical decisions for patients. Coupled with the unparalleled flexible C-arm, the Alphenix 4D CT offers the highest resolution on the market. It also enables fast switching between CT and Angio during complex interventional procedures without transferring patients between rooms. We are proud that Canon Medical’s Hybrid Angio-CT system is adopted globally to support patient care in the fields of interventional radiology, oncology, cardiology, neurosurgery, trauma and other specialties.”

Deep Learning Spectral CT reconstruction is an upgrade option for Alphenix 4D CT customers with Aquilion ONE/Genesis Edition CT scanners. HD 76 high-definition detector is also available for all Alphenix customers with a 12×12” or 12×16” detector.
