Canon Medical Introduces New Configuration of Aquilion One/Genesis Edition Cardiac CT Solution

July 17, 2020—Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. announced the introduction of a new configuration of the Aquilion One/Genesis Edition, an artificial intelligence–powered wide-area CT system for structural and coronary imaging.

Aquilion One/Genesis SP is part of Canon Medical’s suite of “Collaborative Imaging” tools, which provide a complete, integrated solution that helps medical practitioners address cardiovascular disease at every stage in the process—from evaluation to treatment. Collaborative Imaging offers a wide range of features for complete cardiac care.

According to the company, Aquilion One/Genesis SP incorporates innovative CT technologies including:

  • Improved diagnostic confidence across patients with one-beat, whole-heart acquisition and the advanced intelligent clear-IQ engine (AiCE) deep learning reconstruction that enables clinicians to obtain sharp, clear, and distinct images.
  • Enhanced workflow capabilities because of automated tools from acquisition through analysis such as Sure-Cardio and Vitrea advanced visualization, which can help clinicians manage their new increase in patient volume, and also deliver consistency in high image quality.
  • A lower total cost of ownership with a small footprint (204 square feet) that can fit into most existing CT rooms, unique scalability to fit varying technology needs, and Power Save Mode improvements that enable the system to require less cost to operate.
  • Patient-centric enhancements to help improve safety, comfort, and access, including a wide bore (78 cm) and a wide (47 cm) and low (33 cm) couch.
