The Aquilion Precision CT system from Canon offers very high resolution imaging, which may aid in cancer detection and improved treatment planning in radiation oncology. 


October 19, 2018 – At the 2018 American Society of Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) annual meeting in San Antonio, Texas, Oct, 21-24, Canon Medical Systems USA will showcase its recently FDA-cleared Aquilion Precision, the world’s first ultra-high resolution computed tomography (CT) system. It can resolve anatomy as small as 150 microns and is designed to provide more than twice the CT resolution as standard systems. Containing an all-new detector as well as tube, gantry and reconstruction technologies, the system may make it possible to help expand visualization of disease thanks to new features that offer improved image detail.  

The Aquilion Precision CT system features innovative dose efficiency with detector channels that are only 0.25 mm thick. This combined with substantial improvements in scintillator quantum efficiency, detector circuitry and other DAS components, result in a dose-efficient detector with ultra-high resolution capabilities. The system features resolution never before seen in CT imaging with one of the industry’s smallest Focal Spot Tube at 0.4 x 0.5 mm and the industry’s first routine 1,024 x 1,024 reconstruction matrix.
