September 9, 2020 — Clinicians at the University of California, San Diego Health now have access to Canon Medical Systems USA Inc.'s most advanced MR technology, the Vantage Galan 3T system, with Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) Deep Learning Reconstruction (DLR), for innovative imaging capabilities for neurology, musculoskeletal (MSK) and non-contrast MRA exams.

The Vantage Galan 3T system is designed for streamlined workflow with exceptional image quality, while maximizing patient comfort during exams. Clinicians at University of California, San Diego Health are using the system for a full range of MR exams, from breast imaging to neurology and MSK imaging. With AiCE, the system brings the power of AI to routine imaging, allowing clinicians at the facility to explore more possibilities in improving patient care than ever before, with fast exams that produce high-quality diagnostic images with increased resolution and enhanced anatomical detail.

“The Department of Radiology is committed to working to improve both patient’s lives and population health at UC San Diego Health,” said Alexander Norbash M.D., interventional neuroradiologist, chair and professor of Radiology, UC San Diego Health. “In particular, we plan on exploring the unique possibility of leveraging this technology and its application to provide better patient care at a possible lower cost when it comes to MR exams.”

“Canon Medical’s partnership with University of California, San Diego Health spans many years and includes both innovative research and collaboration through clinical use,” said Jonathan Furuyama, managing director, MR Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “Through key partnerships such as this, we continue to build on our commitment to invest in MR imaging solutions that provide our customers with the very best tools in diagnostic imaging that can ultimately help improve patient care.”
