Canon Medical Systems (NYSE:CAJ) introduced Aquilion One/ Prism, a spectral CT system that integrates AI technology to improve conventional and spectral CT capabilities and automated workflows and provide clinical insights. Features on this advanced system include:
- Advanced intelligent Clear IQ Engine (AiCE) deep learning reconstruction (DLR), which uses deep learning to distinguish true signal from noise to quickly deliver sharp, clear and distinct images. AiCE was trained with a large quantity of high-quality image data to provide enhanced resolution of the brain, lung, cardiac and musculoskeletal systems (pending 510(k) clearance).
- Deep-learning spectral imaging, designed to enable more confident diagnoses. This combines rapid kV switching with patient-specific mA modulation, full field of view acquisition and 16cm of coverage and a DLR for energy separation and low-noise properties. (Pending 510(k) clearance).
- A new CT fluoroscopy (CTF) interface that enables one-person operation through ergonomically designed controls and a touchscreen tablet.
