Improving clinical pathways with Angio CT in abdominal IR

In a study of 114 patients comparing cone beam CT to Hybrid Angiography CT during TACE procedures, clinicians at CHRU in Montpellier found:

"The results were very surprising. The total dose is completely reduced, less than half of the Cone Beam CT dose"

- Prof B. Guiu
CHRU Montpellier

Integration to boost productivity and patient care

Canon’s unique SUREGuidance feature synchronises positional data of the region of interest between modalities. The CT gantry, c-arm and patient table move automatically, improving workflow, accuracy and reducing procedure time.

3D roadmapping to superimpose CT-derived 3D images onto the fluoro image allows you to navigate during the angio procedure with greater confidence and accuracy.

WorkRite

The freedom to move with your workflow

Alphenix’s ceiling-mounted C-arm offers an unprecedented range of movement, allowing you to position the C-arm to suit your workflow. Its unique lateral fingertip-to-fingertip coverage aids transradial procedures.

With the CT gantry fully parked the C-arm provides fast, head-to-toe access from any position. When both the CT gantry and C-arm are parked, you have 360-degree access to the table when you need it.

16 cm coverage in one rotation

Outstanding image quality with
advanced dose management

Aquilion ONE’s wide detector technology can acquire 16 cm coverage in a single split-second rotation. High-quality morphological and functional 4D imaging supports your treatment workflow, simplifying the positioning of needles or guiding catheter embolisation procedures.

Refine and redefine intervention using the world’s first High-Definition technology

The Alphenix interventional systems feature the world’s first high definition (Hi-Def) detector with 76 micron pixel imaging mode. With more than twice the spatial resolution of conventional flat panel detectors (FPD), the Hi-Def detector helps clinicians visualise fine details and anatomical structures and deploy devices with accuracy and confidence.

Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE)

The only Hybrid Angiography CT solution powered by Deep Learning Reconstruction technology

Harnessing the enormous computational power of a Deep Convolutional Neural Network (DCNN), Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) is trained to differentiate signal from noise, so that the algorithm can suppress noise while enhancing signal. Because it is trained with advanced MBIR, it exhibits high spatial resolution. But unlike MBIR, AiCE deep learning reconstruction overcomes the challenges (image appearance and/or reconstruction speed) in clinical adoption.
AiCE images have:
  • Low Noise
  • Fine Image Texture
  • Sharp High Contrast Resolution
  • Clear Low Contrast Detectability

Comprehensive dose management benefits patients and clinical staff

Alphenix Hybrid Angiography CT systems bring together an extensive range of hardware features and software tools all designed to deliver outstanding image quality with minimal dose exposure.

Spot Fluoro significantly reduces patient dose and scatter radiation offering greater protection for the patient and clinical staff. Enhanced dose tracking tools allow real-time peak skin dose monitoring and archiving. This monitoring and visualisation of dose allows the operator to choose a different approach during a long procedure to avoid regions where dose thresholds have been exceeded.

Customer testimonials

"Switching between C-Arm and CT position takes only seconds. Changing from Angio to Arterial CT is very fast, and we do not hesitate to perform this if we feel that the tumour feeder may also have branches to another territory. This is very helpful in prostate embolisation, TACE and SIRT procedures. "

“it is possible to check whether the procedure has been successful or not immediately after the procedure by checking the contrast pooling of the prostate, conducting non-enhanced CT after prostate artery embolization. With this information, they could explain whether the procedure was successful or not to the patient. All patients were treated and discharged on the same day of the procedure.”

High Definition Imaging Reduces Procedure Time Without Impacting Patient Dose in Image-Guided Neuro Interventional Procedures

Preliminary results from over 4,000 neurointerventional procedures at a single centre demonstrate that the improved spatial resolution of the Hi-Def detector may result in reduced procedure time and number of irradiation events. In addition, there was no observable increase in patient dose with the utilisation of the Hi-Def detector.
