Automated kV Selection


  • Integrated into SUREExposure and easy to use automated selection of kV
  • Based on patient’s size and clinical task
  • Possible reduction in iodine contrast volume

Improved image quality and patient safety.

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction (SEMAR)

SEMAR significantly reduces metallic artifact permitting improved visualization of the pelvic organs. This is particularly relevant with the increasing incidence of metal hip prosthesis.

Canon Medical Systems' SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a sophisticated iterative reconstruction technique to reduce metal artifact, 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

Improving patient safety and operational workflow.

Contrast Management

  • Contrast protocols can be saved in each exam plan
  • A contrast summary (planned injection) is generated automatically
  • Synchronized scan and injector start**
  • Record displays planned and actual injection protocol with injection curve**

** Available with CAN 4 license (optional)

Contrast Management

Safer care for patients and providers by limiting dose to radiosensitive organs and during fluoroCT procedures

Organ Effective Modulation

  • During CT Fluoroscopy the X-ray beam can be turned off at user selected tube angles, limiting radiation exposure
  • Limiting dose to radiosensitive organs and making CT safer for routine diagnostic exams and CTF interventions
  • It helps to reduce radiation dose to the operator during FluoroCT procedures

Organ Effective Modulation Demo

Organ Effective Modulation


  • Accurately center and position the patient from the operator’s room directly at scan plan GUI
    • Up-Down
    • Left-Right (option with Tech Assist Lateral Slide)
  • Scanning in isocenter for best image quality and dose modulation
