Help Clinicians Possibly Diagnose Early Stroke Sooner

In the United States stroke symptoms account for up to 3.7 million visits to hospitals and the Emergency Departments. Stroke is a leading cause of death in the United States, killing 130,000 American each year.2 FIRST Low Contrast Detectability (LCD) has the ability to improve low contrast detectability in a routine non-contrast brain scan by up to 101%.3

Aquilion ONE CT: Less Time. Less Radiation.*

Pediatric Patient Benefits

About seven million CT scans are performed on children in the US annually**, and the majority of those children are under the age of 5.

Canon Medical Systems is doing its part in a way that may improve diagnosis time, reduce radiation dose and the potential to eliminate or reduce patient sedation with its Aquilion® ONE dynamic volume CT system — all while producing quality images.

Additionally, Canon Medical Systems has joined an industry-wide campaign to develop best practices to image children safely.
