Canon Medical’s Digital PET/CT System Receives FDA Clearance

Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) for PET will be introduced at SNMMI 2021 on Cartesion Prime, further expanding the technology across modalities and into molecular imaging

June 10, 2021 — Bringing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to molecular imaging, Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE), Canon Medical Systems USA Inc.’s Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR) technology, is now 510(k) cleared on the Cartesion Prime Digital PET/CT system and will be showcased at SNMMI 2021 for both PET and CT acquisitions. The Cartesion Prime with AiCE can help clinicians produce high-quality images consistently and routinely, paving the way for improved image quality, the ability to better visualize lesions and possibly reduce a patient’s time in the scanner.

AiCE was trained using vast amounts of high-quality data, and features a deep learning neural network that can reduce noise and boost signal to quickly deliver, clear and distinct images, further opening doors for advancements in molecular imaging. An innovative approach to reconstruction, AiCE on the Cartesion Prime Digital PET/CT can provide fast exams at a lower dose with better image quality than traditionally acquired during both the PET and CT acquisitions.

“We’re taking innovation in molecular imaging one step further than ever thought possible with the availability of DLR on a digital PET/CT system. Having AiCE provide improved image quality and faster scans at a lower dose for both PET and CT acquisitions will be critically important for clinicians to chart the right course for their patients’ care,” said Tim Nicholson, managing director, Molecular Imaging Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “As Canon Medical continues its expansion of AiCE into more modalities, it opens doors for more clinical applications to be made available for clinicians to ultimately help them provide even better patient care than ever before.”
