Canon Medical Receives FDA Clearance for Vantage Orian 1.5T MRI

New premium system features help improve workflow and deliver clinical confidence

Canon Medical Receives FDA Clearance for Vantage Orian 1.5T MRI

November 16, 2018 — Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on its new premium magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, Vantage Orian 1.5T. The Vantage Orian represents a new standard in the premium wide bore 1.5T market, according to Canon, with new technology designed to boost productivity, enhance patient comfort and deliver diagnostic clinical confidence.

The new system and its features to enhance workflow will be showcased at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago.

With a new slim gradient that delivers a gradient performance with a maximum amplitude of 45 mT/m, combined with a slew rate of 200 T/m/s that enhances high resolution and diffusion imaging, Vantage Orian offers high performance imaging capability previously not available on 1.5T systems from Canon Medical Systems.

Utilizing migrated high end 3T technology, Vantage Orian offers referring physicians and patients diagnostic MRI imaging services with complete clinical confidence. Canon Medical System’s PURERF and Saturn Gradient technology means that stable and consistent imaging performance is ensured, increasing signal to noise ratio (SNR) by up to 38 percent.

The Vantage Orian offers a range of new Rapid Scan and Easy Tech technology that reduces scan time and helps improve workflow. A redesigned gantry interface and dockable table ensure seamless patient handling. New applications like Multiband SPEEDER, that shortens acquisitions such as high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI), and up to eight times accelerated k-t SPEEDER allows high-frame-rate cardiac cine and perfusion imaging with free breathing.

Vantage Orian also offers one of the smallest footprints in the 1.5T wide-bore class, according to Canon, and low power consumption eco features that reduce energy use by up to 21 percent. The system is equipped with maintenance programs to satisfy the needs of hospital administrators.

A relaxed patient is key in MRI, and Vantage Orian takes care of this with quiet scan sequences that reduce ambient noise by Pianissimo Zen technology. The 71cm wide bore and immersive virtual MR Theater are designed to put patients at ease. Vantage Orian also addresses challenging patients with Pediatric SPEEDER coils, contrast-free applications and ForeSee View for simplified scan planning.
