Canon Receives FDA Approval for Ultrasound Liver Analysis Suite

Attenuation Imaging, Shear Wave Dispersion and new transducers among package approved for Aplio i800

Canon Receives FDA Approval for Ultrasound Liver Analysis Suite

March 28, 2018 – Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for a robust suite of quantitative tools for the Aplio i800 ultrasound system to assess the spectrum of liver disease. The new tools  may be helpful in the assessment of liver diseases such as steatosis, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and/or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH), which are characterized by elevated levels of fat accumulation in the liver.

Canon Medical Systems’ Liver Analysis Suite equips clinicians with premium diagnostic imaging tools to facilitate the analysis of fatty liver disease. In addition to Shear Wave Elastography imaging, the new suite adds Attenuation Imaging (ATI) and Shear Wave Dispersion (SWD), two exclusive features that allow healthcare providers to visualize and quantify tissue attenuation and dispersion slope, which is a property related to tissue viscosity, for a more comprehensive evaluation of the liver.

In addition to the Liver Analysis Suite, a wider range of transducers, available on the Aplio i-series platform, have also been granted FDA clearance. On top of the ultra-high frequency transducer (24 MHz), the Aplio i-series now includes a new 22 MHz hockey stick to visualize small and narrow areas such as fingers and joints or for interoperative procedures, as well as several new transducers for abdominal 3-D, obstetric (OB) 4-D, neonatal and vascular imaging.

The premium Liver Analysis Suite on the Aplio i800 and the transducers on the Aplio i-series were showcased at this year’s American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) 2018 annual meeting, March 24-28 in New York.
