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.

Super Resolution* Cardiac CT

A new standard in cardiac clarity

Achieve super resolution imaging on wide-area CT by combining the ultra-high resolution benefits of the Aquilion Precision with the wide-area benefits of the Aquilion ONE platform, enabled by Precise IQ-Engine (PIQE).

  • Improved visualization of plaque which may aid in plaque evaluation
  • Reduction in blooming artifact which may aid in assessment of in-stent restenosis
  • Reduction in blooming artifact of calcium which may improve visualization of lumen

Compensate for coronary motion.

Cardiac Adaptive Motion Correction

AMC is an adaptive motion correction algorithm that enhances the visibility of the coronary segments with motion.

  • Reducing cardiac motion for patients with higher heart rates
  • Compensate for motion within coronaries

Volume Arrhythmia Detection

A safe and reproducible diagnostic study with every cardiac scan.

Volume Arrhythmia detection will automatically adapt the scan protocol for unstable or higher heart rates, ensuring diagnostic image quality.

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction.

SEMAR for Cardiac CT

Improved image quality.

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.

Wide Volume CTA

Triage chest pain in minutes.

Wide volume scanning allows for large anatomical areas (greater than 16 cm) to be covered quickly and to be reconstructed and reviewed in one image data set.

Structural Heart Interventional Planning

Volumetric, Ultra Helical combined.

The ability to scan multiple vascular territories with CT is used to plan complex interventional procedures like TAVI or TAVR, where gating is needed through the heart and not through the abdominal aorta and femoral arteries.

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

*Available on Aquilion ONE / GENESIS SP, Aquilion Prime SP and Aquilion ONE / PRISM Edition.
**Optimization of contrast usage is only recommended within the dosing ranges that appear in approved iodinated contrast drug labeling.
