System delivers trio of CT Images (non-contrast, angiogram and perfusion) in minutes

Canon Medical Systems Highlights Aquilion One/Genesis CT Stroke Suite at SIR 2018

March 29, 2018 — The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition computed tomography (CT) system from Canon Medical Systems gives clinicians the potential to diagnose and evaluate acute stroke quickly. Canon highlighted the Aquilion One/Genesis at the 2018 Society for Interventional Radiology (SIR) annual meeting, March 17-22 in Los Angeles.

The system is capable of imaging the entire brain with a single 640-slice rotation with ConeXact, covering 16 cm. It can also capture both anatomy and function, which provides physicians with additional tools to help diagnose stroke with a single CT scan, and may reduce the need for multimodality exams, which can take a significant amount of time.

The Aquilion One/Genesis Edition helps clinicians improve the diagnosis and evaluation of acute stroke, thanks to features that offer clinicians whole-brain stroke characterization in one examination, including:

  • Neuro ONE Protocol allows acquisition of multiple low-dose volume scans of the entire brain during contrast infusion to provide whole-brain perfusion and whole-brain dynamic vascular analysis in one exam; and
  • Forward projected model-based Iterative Reconstruction SoluTion (FIRST) MBIR improves high-contrast spatial resolution and low-contrast detectability in the brain, opening doors for the possibility of seeing early signs of stroke with CT. FIRST provides noise reduction and lowers radiation dose – up to 82.4 percent dose reduction as compared to filtered back projection (FBP) – and removes workflow challenges of MBIR.
