Making CT safer for all patients.

PUREViSION Technology

Optimized beam spectrum combined with a more efficient detector to significantly improve image quality and reduce patient dose.1



  • More efficient use of X-rays
  • True 0.5 mm slice resolution
  • 40% better light output
  • Maximizing Canon Medical Systems' ceramics expertise with a detector cut from a solid ingot using microblade cutting technology to minimize imperfections and maximize quantum efficiency


  • Set of filters that absorb the low energy photons that cause scatter, dose, and noise in the image - optimizing the x-ray beam for CT imaging
  • Up to 19% improved low contrast detectability (LCD)2 for Body
  • Up to 22% improved LCD2 for Brain
  • Up to 31% less dose3 for Body

*PUREViSION Optics performance dependent on system configuration.
1Reduced dose and improved image quality with PUREViSION Optics and Detector compared to CT systems without.
2A non-prewhitening model observer study was conducted comparing Aquilion Prime SP to the Aquilion PRIME and Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition to Aquilion ONE.
3Maximum dose reduction values were established by comparing low contrast detectability under baseline conditions for abdominal and brain examination.
