Aquilion Prime SP CT Scanner Technology

Deep Learning Reconstruction

See through the noise

The Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE), an innovative approach to CT reconstruction, uses Deep Learning to distinguish true signal from noise to deliver sharp, clear and distinct images at speed. Trained using vast amounts of high-quality image data, AiCE provides enhanced anatomical resolution across the whole body¹ including brain, lung, cardiac and musculoskeletal systems.

Aquilion Prime SP and AiCE

AiCE deep learning reconstruction images feature:

  • Our best low-contrast resolution, ever ¹,³
  • Dose neutral industry-leading ultra-high resolution²
  • Improved low-contrast detectability, noise and spatial resolution relative to hybrid iterative reconstruction
  • Image noise texture more similar to FBP compared to MBIR reconstruction³
  • Fast reconstruction
  • Easy workflow

¹1.5mm @ 0.3%, 22.6 mGy for Genesis. 1.5mm@ 0.3%, 21.8 mGy for Prime SP
²Aquilion Precision, Dose neutral between Ultra-high resolution mode with AiCE and normal resolution mode with hybrid iterative reconstruction

Aquilion ONE PRISM CT Fluoroscopy

Every heart, Covered

Cardiovascular disease is on the rise. In fact, one person dies every 37 seconds in the United States from cardiovascular disease.* With CT positioned as a first-line diagnostic tool addressing the evolving needs of cardiac imaging, your ability to deliver high quality, consistent CT studies is critical to outcomes. Your patients deserve the best technology available, and so do you. Canon Medical—the creator of one-beat cardiac CT—delivers.

Every heart, Covered

Enables multiple specialized studies within a single scan.

vHP 3-Phase (vHP3)*

vHP 3-Phase* allows three scans to be performed in a single acquisition, seamlessly transitioning between scan parameters optimized for each body region. vHP 3-Phase has potential for less contrast media and lower radiation dose by providing the flexibility to seamlessly transition:

  • Between ECG Gating on and off during a cardiac scan
  • Between dose and image quality during a CAP scan
  • Between fast and detailed pitch during a trauma scan

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction (SEMAR)

Bilateral Hip Replacement

A pelvic CT was performed for bilateral hip replacement evaluation post-surgery. The coronal view with SEMAR demonstrates drastic metal artifact reduction allowing physicians to confidently evaluate the prosthesis positioning as well as surrounding tissues. A soft tissue mass is seen adjacent to the right lesser trochanter.
