Canon Showcases Cardiac CT Offerings Virtually at SCCT 2020

Canon displays new CT technologies in its virtual SCCT 2020 booth.

Canon Medical Systems USA has created a virtual trade-show experience for its cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) offerings at the 2020 Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (SCCT) virtual meeting July 16-19. With CT positioned as a first-line diagnostic tool addressing the evolving needs of cardiac imaging, hospitals have the ability to deliver high quality, consistent CT studies that are critical to outcomes. 

Canon is showcasing the latest is CT system technology, advanced visualization and room disinfection technology to help keep imaging going during the COVID-19 era.
