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.

Automated bone subtraction and/or iodine mapping.

SURESubtraction™

In CTA examinations SURESubtraction has the ability to remove bone, calcium and stents from data sets allowing clinicians an unobstructed view of the arteries.
Moreover, SURESubtraction can create iodine maps to enable the assessment of the distribution of contrast media within the body to visualize local perfusion.

SURESubtraction has protocol integrated automation at every step to empower even a novice operator with the skills to perform brilliantly the first time — every time.

Prior to subtraction, Canon Medical Systems' deformable registration allows pixel matching between the pre-contrast and contrast enhanced data for precise digital subtraction and iodine mapping, saving time and improving diagnostic accuracy.

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction

SEMAR

Canon Medical Systems’ SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a sophisticated iterative 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 can be set in the scan protocol so the reconstructions are fully automatic requiring no additional operator input.

Variable Helical Pitch

vHP

Has the ability to automatically change an ECG-gated to a non-ECG-gated acquisition, reducing IV contrast and radiation dose.

Changing table speeds within the same exam saves time, dose and cost. The video example demonstrates how combining ECG and non ECG gated scans into one single scan makes excellent use of contrast media while reducing dose.

SUREFluoro

By fully automating CT fluoroscopy, SUREFluoro™ improves exam accuracy and accelerates patient throughput when performing interventional procedures.

Automated Interventional CT Guidance:

12 fps with three slice display
One shot mode
MPR volumetric needle positioning
Target image display for easy measurements
Automatic table movement to target location

Helical Prospective with arrhythmia detection

SURECardio Prospective with arrhythmia detection

With Aquilion PRIME'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.

Clinical Proof Case Studies

Case Study 1
Coronary CTA, Three Vessel Disease

Male patient with strong family history of coronary artery disease. Coronary CTA was performed and images reconstructed with AIDR+ (Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction). 3D Volume Rendered and curved Multiplanar Reconstruction (MPR) images demonstrate calcification in the left main coronary artery and right coronary artery (RCA). Calcified and non-calcified plaques are seen in the mid left anterior descending (LAD) and non-calcified plaque in the circumflex artery (CX).

Clinical Proof Case Studies

Case Study 2
Abdominal CTA, Aortic Aneurysm

85-year-old male, Abdominal and Pelvic CTA for the assessment of endovascular stent-graft placement. 3D Volume Rendered, Maximum Intensity Projection (MIP) and axial images demonstrate the aneurysm extension from renal to iliac arteries. It also shows several calcified plaques in the aortic and iliac wall.
