Canon Medical Systems USA launches SP configurations for enhanced MRI performance

Canon Medical Systems USA has launched SP configurations for its 1.5T and 3T MRI – Orian SP and Galan SP. They deliver powerful gradients for top performance. The SP configurations include Canon’s exclusive ‘Pianissimo’ technology to help improve the patient experience. Pianissimo addresses acoustic noise by housing the gradient coil in a vacuum-sealed chamber and eliminating the atmosphere where noise can be transmitted.

This recent launch features AI-driven workflow solutions, an intelligent ceiling camera, and the tablet UX mobile interface and is designed to deliver daily high-end performance.

In addition, SP configurations come standard with powerful 45 mT/m maximum gradient peaks and 200 mT/m/ms slew rates, the Fast 3D acceleration package, and ForeSee View automation, a real-time preview of the scan plan. The inclusion of Canon’s AiCE DLR on all SP configurations firmly plants the SP configurations into the premium performance space.

Along with AiCE, their fully integrated Deep Learning Reconstruction technology in MR for enhancing imaging quality, Orian SP and Galan SP deliver powerful gradients for top performance, Canon’s exclusive Fast 3D suite for speed, and the combination of their new ceiling camera and tablet UX for efficiency.

“We are acutely aware that MRI scans require a more complex workflow than other modalities. With this in mind, our team of engineers have focused on the needs of the U.S. to find solutions that best meet the demands and challenges of our market,” noted Satrajit Misra, SVP, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer at Canon Medical Systems USA. “With our premium MRI systems, customers can now have quality platforms that deliver advanced imaging solutions and an advanced A.I. capability, as well as productivity features that set our systems apart in the premium MRI market.”

Advanced AI technology

In line with the recent release of Altivity, Canon’s new approach to AI innovation

that uses smart technologies, the SP configurations incorporate machine learning and deep learning technology to enhance image quality by removing noise and increasing SNR. In addition, it automates many scan procedures and confirms set-up steps to help you save time and reduce errors.

“AiCE produces clear and distinct images that have far-reaching implications regarding clinical decision-making,” said Misra. “By producing subtle indicators for complex procedures that can otherwise be missed. Also, AiCE easily integrates with motion and metal management techniques and is the first of its kind in terms of fully integrated DLR technology for MRI.”
