Innovate. Collaborate. Integrate.

Global Illumination is a new revolutionary 3D/4D rendering technique to help provide a more photorealistic view of human anatomy.

Pure Innovation

Position yourself at the forefront of your industry with new cutting-edge, real-time photorealistic rendering techniques

Photorealistic: Global Illumination rendering uses complex lighting and shading techniques to provide photorealistic imaging.
Greater detail: Improve your understanding of image content, such as anatomy, spatial relationships, and lesion identification, through the greater detail that Global Illumination rendering offers than in traditional volume rendering. 
Real time & interactive: Real-time image manipulation and editing enables you to quickly segment and edit anatomy – without disrupting clinical workflow.

Smart Collaboration

Share findings more easily with both MDTs and your patients, thanks to outstanding photorealistic images

Improved communication and collaboration with non-radiology physicians: Using outstanding photorealistic imaging allows for effective sharing and education across MDTs and cross-facility departments. Conveying information outside of Radiology has never been easier.
Improved image understanding and application by the non-radiologist physician: Global Illumination rendering is a tool to cross over to new clinical domains, for example, forensic imaging. It also potentially aids in surgical planning and oncology.

Intelligent Integration

Integrate photorealistic images in clinical workflows for unprecedented time and cost-efficiency

Integrated into existing workflow: Global Illumination rendering works on standard hardware so you can get the benefits of photorealistic 4D image rendering in routine clinical workflow with no added time or effort.
New use cases: Images generated with Global Illumination rendering enhances communication when used with existing tools, and has the potential to add value and change the way reporting is done today and in the future.
Surgical planning: Global Illumination rendering has promising use in aiding surgical planning and complementing benefits of 3D printing*.

"The new age of Advanced Visualization"

Prof. Alain Blum from CHRU Nancy introduces us to "The new age of Advanced Visualization" with Global Illumination Rendering.
Throughout the lecture, Prof. Blum highlights the clinical value of multiple Canon technologies, including the use of Global Illumination rendering in both 3D and 4D imaging in a variety of clinical and forensic scenarios.
