Musculoskeletal CT Scanning with Low Dose
Canon Medical System’s Aquilion CT technology enables excellent image quality to be achieved for certain procedures at dose levels approaching that of X-ray examinations.
This can be achieved on all Aquilion CT scanners due to highly efficient X-ray generation, detection & reconstruction technologies including:
Low Dose Improves Your Workflow and Productivity
“The ability for high-quality CT imaging to be performed at doses similar to an equivalent X-Ray examination has become really important for our orthopaedic referrers. As a result of offering this service on the Aquilion Lightning 16 CT system, we have seen an increase in referrals for these procedures. In the appropriate situation, referrers are now going straight to CT.”
– Jessica Bretch, CT Lead Radiographer for South Coast Radiology
An optimised beam spectrum based on PUREViSION Optics results in a better balance between image quality and dose.
The PUREViSION detector with industry-leading 0.5 mm element size delivers razor-sharp, fully isotropic images in all planes. By making more efficient use of X-rays, the innovative PUREViSION detector produces 40% more light to the photodiode allowing you to minimise patient dose while improving image quality.
AIDR 3D dose reduction reconstruction technology
Canon Medical’s iterative reconstruction technology can be applied to all examinations resulting in dose reductions of up to 75 % in daily routine.
CT scans performed at dose levels approaching that of X-Ray examinations. All images acquired using high resolution 0.5mm acquisition mode.
Aquilion ONE GENESIS Edition
Aquilion ONE GENESIS Edition goes beyond the evolution of dynamic volume CT, providing excellent image quality with low radiation and contrast dose tailored to each and every patient.
Aquilion Lightning 160
160-slice wide bore CT that leverages the premium technology synonymous with the Aquilion range. By achieving the perfect balance between performance and cost the Aquilion LIghtning 160 is the smarter investment.
Ground-breaking 16-row helical CT system for whole-body imaging, employs cutting-edge technologies to optimise patient care and accelerate clinical decision making. Innovative features ensure that high-quality images are acquired with the lowest possible patient dose.
