Canon Medical today announced the upcoming release of its new high-end Cartesion Prime digital PET/CT system.
The Cartesion Prime system is comprised of Canon’s SiPM PET detector and the Aquilion Prime SP CT system. It includes a silicon photomultiplier design with one-to-one coupling for increased clinical confidence as it offers providers a way to deliver more personalized care.
Canon’s scanner also offers fast time-of-flight resolution, providing high-quality images with increased productivity. It has a large axial field of view to increase the speed of the scanning process and make the experience more comfortable for patients, while air-cooling technology supports more attractive siting and long-term maintenance requirements when compared to water-cooled systems.
“With our customers’ needs in mind, we developed the Cartesion Prime digital PET/CT with advanced features that can help clinicians chart the right course for their patients’ care,” Canon Medical’s molecular imaging business unit managing director Tim Nicholson said in a news release. “This advanced technology has led to image quality improvements, while optimizing dose efficiency to reduce patient risk and speeding up acquisition time for improved throughput. These innovations are part of Canon Medical’s commitment to continually provide meaningful improvement for today’s care, and for the future.”
Canon Medical said it will unveil the scanner at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting in Chicago from Dec. 1 to Dec. 6.
