With over 80 million CT scans performed every year at a time when skilled labor is limited, managing your practice can be challenging – placing pressure on your ability to ensure consistent, reliable and fast results that are essential to high quality care.
Introducing Canon Medical Systems’ suite of SUREWorkflow tools to drive efficiencies through automation of key steps of the CT imaging chain from referral to reporting. Incorporate tools for simplified patient setup enabling safe and accurate care delivery, automated protocol setup for scans with personalized/optimized dose and image quality across patients, zero-click post-processing for consistent and fast results, and an AI-based solution for optimized post-scan workflow with actionable findings at your fingertips.
After patient registration Aquilion selects the correct adult or child protocols automatically.
Aquilion helps ensure that the radiation dose limit you defined cannot be exceeded to avoid unintended high dose levels.
This fully integrated automatic exposure control ensures optimum image quality and patient dose.
The system provides real-time imaging during the scan allowing you to monitor the result instantaneously—a valuable tool for saving scan time.
By allowing contrast protocols to be added to your exam plan, flow rate and volume are automatically based on actual patient weight and exam type, while the injection is synchronized with the scan.
Automated kV selection
To further save iodine volume, SUREkV automatically uses the lowest kV setting for CTA examinations.
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:
Aortic CTA acquired with vHP, Heart Rate of 86 bpm, 40 ml of iodinated contrast material, SUREkV (100 kV automatically selected).
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 confidence.
*Optimization of contrast usage is only recommended within the dosing ranges that appear in approved iodinated contrast drug labeling.
