May 11, 2020 — In today’s challenging healthcare environment, radiology departments are often faced with the difficult decision of how to safely image patients who are suspected of being positive with infectious disease. To help hospitals and institutions effectively utilize computed tomography (CT) with these conditions, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. introduces a deployable CT with a rapid decontamination solution. The deployable system includes the Aquilion Prime SP CT system in a modular or mobile footprint with a rapid decontamination tool, to help isolate and decontaminate the CT for rapid, safe imaging.

The Aquilion Prime SP CT system offers complete clinical capability, with advanced imaging technology from Canon Medical’s high-end CT systems with the right balance between image quality and lower dose for every patient. The system can generate 160 unique slices per rotation with 0.35-second scanning, reducing time required to perform studies for compromised patients, and also increase throughput. With a 78-cm aperture gantry and a 660-pound patient-weight-capacity couch, the system is ideal for use in an emergency setting. The Aquilion Prime SP is now also available with Advanced Intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR), enabling clinicians to enhance diagnostic confidence at low doses. Now available in a modular or mobile setup for easy deployment, the system can be isolated from other facility staff and patients, providing a safer environment for imaging patients suspected to have infectious diseases.

The decontamination system is an automated UV-C technology that significantly reduces bacteria, spores and viruses and is effective against a variety of advanced viral infectious diseases. The system incorporates multiple automated UV-C emitters that work together to provide decontamination of the room in minutes to help improve workflow. The decontamination system is available for the new deployable CT solutions, as well as existing fixed imaging suites.

“Imaging infectious disease patients is not a new phenomenon for medical providers. But our customers are facing an unprecedented number of potentially contagious patients,” said Erin Angel, managing director, CT Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “Our deployable CT offerings with the addition of rapid UV-C decontamination will offer providers a unique solution to help improve their workflow and safety as they image infectious disease patients.”
