Adaptive Diagnostics Aquilion CT Clinical Solutions

Adaptive Diagnostics

Helps eliminate variability in scanning with the industry's best solutions.

Lowering CT dose and improving workflow are not choices that clinicians should have to make, so Canon Medical Systems CT is putting customers first by providing the industry's best solutions to solve these challenges. To make complex exams easier, lower dose and improve diagnostic accuracy and reproducibility, Canon Medical Systems is introducing its Adaptive Diagnostics CT technology.


SURESubtraction™ has the ability to remove bone and calcium from data sets while allowing clinicians to view tumors or arteries at risk. Currently available for brain, carotid, ortho and lung exams.

Using Canon Medical Systems' fully automated non-rigid registration algorithm, bone, calcium and stent subtraction can be accomplished using a low dose unenhanced scan prior to contrast delivery. Superior visualization of the vertebral arteries and internal carotids can be seen, saving time and improving diagnostic accuracy.

SURE Subtraction CT Technology

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction


Canon Medical Systems' SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a reconstruction technique to reduce metallic artifact, improving visualization of implants, supporting bone and the adjacent soft tissues for a clearer and more confident diagnosis.


SEMAR Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction CT Technology

Enables multiple specialized studies within a single scan.

vHP with three phases (vHP3)*

Canon Medical Systems' exclusive technology, variable helical parameters (vHP) adaptive diagnostic tool will allow scanning of multiple anatomical areas within one breath hold and one contrast injection.

vHP3 has the potential to:

  • Decrease radiation dose to the patient
  • Decrease the amount of IV contrast needed
  • Improve the workflow for complex clinical exams

Helical Prospective with arrhythmia detection

SURECardio™ Prospective with arrhythmia detection

With Aquilion Prime SP's SURECardio Prospective Adaptive diagnostic scan mode, the system will begin the acquisition prospectively, and if an arrhythmia is detected, it will automatically switch to a continuous mode in order to ensure a diagnostic exam. A unique application that dramatically lowers patient dose during coronary CTA exams using a helical acquisition technique to provide one continuous image instead of multiple images.
