Johns Hopkins Medicine First in U.S. to Install Canon Medical's Aquilion Precision

Ultra-High Resolution CT system delivers resolution as small as 150 microns

Johns Hopkins Medicine First in U.S. to Install Canon Medical's Aquilion Precision

March 26, 2019 — Johns Hopkins Medicine now has access to the first Ultra-High Resolution computed tomography (UHR CT) system for research capabilities, delivering twice the resolution of today’s CT systems, thanks to the installation of the Aquilion Precision from Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. The system will be used to expand research capabilities in studies of liver disease and bone loss, as well as investigations in lung disease and coronary artery disease.

A ribbon cutting opening ceremony for the Johns Hopkins Center for Precision Ultra High Resolution CT was held to commemorate the installation of the system. Leadership from Johns Hopkins University, Johns Hopkins Medicine, Canon Medical and members of the local community were present.

Featuring an all-new detector as well as tube, gantry and reconstruction technologies, the system may make it possible to help the facility expand visualization of disease, due to new features capable of resolving anatomy as small as 150 microns for advanced image detail. Innovative dose efficiency with detector channels that are only 0.25 mm thick, combined with improvements in scintillator quantum efficiency, detector circuitry and other DAS components, result in a dose-efficient detector with UHR CT capabilities. The system also features what Canon calls the industry’s smallest focal spot tube at 0.4 mm x 0.5 mm and the industry’s first 1024 and 2048 Reconstruction Matrix for further increased resolution.
