RSNA 2023: Canon Medical Systems USA Debuts Precise IQ Engine (PIQE)

TUSTIN, Calif. November 21, 2022 – Canon Medical Systems USA Inc., announces at RSNA 2023, the introduction of Precise IQ Engine (PIQE*), their new Deep Learning Reconstruction technology for MRI, the latest enhancement in their patient and technologist-friendly MR Portfolio. Their adaptable line-up of MR systems delivers transformative technology, providing healthcare professionals with diagnostic capabilities and patient comfort.

PIQE is Canon Medical System’s high resolution Deep Learning Reconstruction for MRI powered by Altivity, a bold new approach to AI innovation that uses smart technologies to make a whole new level of quality, insight and value. PIQE increases matrix size, removes noise, and delivers sharp anatomical images to take MR imaging to the next level. PIQE application generates high spatial resolution images from low resolution images, while maintaining image quality and mitigating ringing artifacts. Additionally, PIQE allows users to triple the matrix in both in-plane directions, a factor of 9x.

In addition, AI is seamlessly woven into the entire process to meet the increasing demand for speed and efficiency. Canon Medical Systems offers technologists the option of Auto Scan Assist, an automated alignment tool to prioritize speed and consistency. The optional Ceiling Camera and Tablet UX remote software work in tandem to enhance productivity through precise patient alignment and automated landmark setting. The Tablet UX software allows users to remotely register patients, create protocols, monitor exams, and communicate with patients.

The image processing capabilities feature Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) and PIQE with Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR), ensuring enhanced confidence for clinicians, patients, and operators. Iterative Motion Correction (IMC), which also incorporates DLR technology, reduces motion artifacts, which may help reduce the need for repeat exams.

Lastly, Canon Medical is also showcasing at RSNA 2023 the Remote Assist MR console, which will help users provide remote, real-time assistance with protocol adjustments and training. These optional enhancements were designed to provide tailored solutions to meet the specific needs of organizations.

The press is invited to explore these latest innovations in diagnostic imaging technology at RSNA 2023. For further details, Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. welcomes inquiries for an exclusive briefing.
