December 22, 2020 — Hospitals and institutions are continually looking for ways to improve diagnostic imaging throughput, especially in today’s environment where disinfection of systems and rooms in between patients is crucial. Now, Compressed SPEEDER technology has been FDA-cleared for 3D sequences on Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc.’s Vantage Orian 1.5T MR system, so clinicians can easily expect to scan at least twice as fast, and even faster in many clinical scenarios.  

Compressed SPEEDER 3D boosts MRI scan times during 3D sequences for exams such as surgical planning and orthopedic applications by reconstructing full resolution images from under-sampled data through iterative reconstruction. The innovative technique overcomes many of the limitations inherent to traditional parallel imaging and allows for greater acceleration. The system can even further accelerate exams with Fast3D, a new technique that can be used in combination with Compressed SPEEDER 3D to help make exams even quicker.

Compressed SPEEDER is available as an option in an all-new new version of M-Power software for the Vantage Orian 1.5T, which is also available with Fat Fraction Quantification, an application integrated directly onto the system’s console to help clinicians image and quantify fatty liver disease. The application acquires six MR echoes at once, allowing for quick diagnoses, detailed severity grading, disease monitoring and treatment response, all in alignment with QIBA standards.

“With 30 percent of the U.S. population suffering from Fatty Liver Disease, the ability to diagnose quickly as well as quantify and monitor the disease has become extremely important to clinicians. Our Fat Fraction Quantification is an ideal solution, and it is on our Vantage Orian 1.5T console so that it can be integrated into existing workflow,” said Jonathan Furuyama, managing director, MR Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “At Canon Medical, our priority is to support our customers and their patients by providing them with timely advancements that can impact their outcomes and workflow. With the help of Compressed SPEEDER for 3D exams along with Fat Fraction Quantification, healthcare providers can offer a quick and comfortable experience for their patients.”
