The new Aquilion One Genesis SP cardiac CT system uses artificial intelligence to help reconstruct low dose cardiac CT images.
July 20, 2020 – To meet the growing cardiovascular imaging needs of healthcare systems, Canon Medical Systems USA is introducing a new configuration of the Aquilion One / Genesis Edition – the Aquilion One / Genesis SP. The vendor said this is a complete cardiac CT solution that is designed for the evolving needs of structural and coronary imaging, enabling consistent, high-quality studies through its artificial intelligence (AI)-powered, wide-area CT.
The Aquilion One / Genesis SP enhances Canon Medical’s suite of collaborative imaging tools which deliver clarity and confidence across the patient care cycle. Collaborative imaging provides a complete, integrated solution that helps medical practitioners address cardiovascular disease at every stage in the process, from evaluation to treatment, offering a wide range of features for complete cardiac care. These features include:
• Improved diagnostic confidence across patients with one-beat, whole-heart acquisition and advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR), which enables clinicians to obtain sharp, clear and distinct images.
• Enhanced workflow capabilities because of automated tools from acquisition through analysis such as SURECardio and Vitrea advanced visualization, which can help clinicians manage their new increase in patient volume, and also deliver proven 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 Aquilion One Genesis / SP to require less cost to operate.
• Patient-centric enhancements to help improve safety, comfort and access, including a wide bore (78 cm) and wide (47 cm) and low (33 cm) couch.
“Due to expanding applications of CT for structural heart procedures and coronary imaging, healthcare providers are growing their cardiac CT programs. At Canon Medical, we are committed to providing technologies that help clinicians keep pace with these evolving clinical pathways,” said Erin Angel, managing director, CT business unit, Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. “Canon Medical’s CT product line, including the Aquilion One / Genesis SP, is designed to offer complete cardiac capabilities. The platform was designed to be intuitive, making the acquisition of high quality images easy and reliable across the full spectrum of patients and clinical scenarios.”
Canon Medical is showcased the new CT system and its full suite of icardiac capabilities at the Society of Cardiac Computed Tomography (SCCT) 2020 virtual annual meeting. People can visit Canon's virtual booth at https://us.medical.canon/go/PR_7-2020_GENESIS_SP.
