The Ultimate, Intuitive MR Interface
Empowering you to do more.
Canon’s revolutionary M-Power user interface takes MR performance and flexibility to new levels. M-Power can be customised for site specific scanning by creating optimal user-defined workflows for everyone, regardless of whether they’re new to MR or have years of experience. Efficiency is increased with advanced applications which streamline and accelerate processes with quick and easy to use features. With these techniques, it’s even easier to develop clinical referrals.
Designed by you for the way you work.
Canon Medical’s next generation M-Power interface lets operators design their own protocols and easily access mTools for greater convenience. Frequently used icons are positioned to reduce the amount of required mouse movement across the interface. This ergonomically, eye-pleasing display increases efficiency and reduces operator fatigue.
Optimised for you.
M-Power software streamlines your workflow: As soon as a patient is registered in the RIS/HIS including type of examination, the scanner automatically selects the appropriate protocol that corresponds with the clinical request. In this protocol the scan parameters as well as the post-processing functions are defined. Plus, advanced users can further optimise parameters for even better results.
- Multi-modality platform, minimal interaction, vast possibilities.
- Optimised for routine exams: fewer clicks, shorter mouse movements.
- Automated and fast, post-processing for complex analyses
- 1-2-3-done! Our approach ensures even complex analysis is done in seconds.
Easy to use. Easy to learn.
M-Power makes our sophisticated suite of MR software remarkably easy to learn and use, empowering technologists of every skill level to access its full functionality. The ability to start scans in only 3 quick steps helps reduce patient anxiety while they wait for exams to begin. Plus enables a higher patient volumes across a wider range of clinical applications.
Satisfying the need for speed.
M-Power facilitates faster throughput by using efficient tools and proprietary protocols. Significantly enhancing workflow from registration to exams and diagnosis. Optimising your user interface with mTools, Atlas Compass and improved sequences also boosts efficiency.
Powered by Automated Features.
M-Power is built for all levels of users, reduces the number of steps during exam set-up and featuring advanced post-processing software. Including the mTools customisable dashboard where you can quickly and simply access frequently used tools in one place. Atlas Compass, our premium automated coil detection tool, providing unparalleled productivity and image quality. Along with Canon Medical Systems Computed DWI (cDWI) Maps technique, that allows you to create an unlimited number of b-value maps from a single DWI acquisition.
M-Power is built for all levels of users, reduces the number of steps during exam set-up and mTools allows you to personlise your user interface to suit your best-practice. Drag and drop your most frequently used tools into one place for simple access, reducing procedure time.
Completely automates the selection of coil elements within a predetermined range. Atlas Compass turns on the proper coil elements needed for a specific exam, eliminating guesswork in patient positioning and coil selection for superior imaging and productivity.
M-Power automates the process for observing CSF (Cerebral Spinal Fluid) flow using Time-SLIP (Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse) protocol. Capturing a series of images in continuous acquisition with optimally placed pulse tags, which are advanced to image CSF flow.
mVox acquires more information in less time by performing 3D isotropic volume T2W or FLAIR imaging, while limiting the sequences per exam. Especially for neuro, body and orthopedic applications, where isotropic resolution is preserved in all reformatted planes.
Atlas saves you time
In conventional systems, anatomy-specific coils can’t coexist on the table. Consequently, frequent coil exchange made the process tedious and cumbersome to the operators. Therefore, procedure set-up and patient throughput was inefficient. With the Atlas coil concept whereby the head, spine and body coils are seamlessly combined, boundary-free image acquisition can be performed while dramatically reducing coil exchange time. This results in an improved workflow.
Efficiency in 3 Dimensions
Advanced 3D post-processing.
M-Power can automatically apply advanced 3D post-processing to achieve greater workflow efficiency with our enhanced suite:
- SVR: Surface Volume Rendering
- MIP: Maximum Intensity Projection
- MPR: Multi-Planar Reformatting
Eliminating the need for a separate workstation, M-Power can conveniently use the automated SVR post-processing program to create advanced 3D volume renders.
By selecting the 3D process on the operator console. Images can then be optimised manually with an easy-to-use cutting tool, previewed and saved as a DICOM data set.
M-Power’s advanced MPR tool or Multi-Planar Reformatting can automatically reformat an isotropic volume data set in any plane including user-selectable oblique planes.
As easy as 1-2-3.
Advanced post-processing applications have been developed with a streamlined workflow for operators at all experience levels. fMRI, Spectroscopy, Diffusion Tensor Imaging and Diffusion Tractography applications can be accessed on the main console using the following simple, three step process. These optional applications can be added as your clinical practice grows.
Functional MRI (fMRI) measures the Blood Oxygen Level dependency (BOLD) effect, which relates a specific function or thought to a specific region of the brain. Functional analysis displaying areas of activation with color enhancement. Functional data may be fused with any 2D or 3D data set.
Spectroscopy is an Magnetic Resonance imaging technique that measures metalbolite concentrations in the blood. M-Power provides processing of single and multi-voxel spectral data. Baseline correction, peak analysis, CSI evaluation and metabolite identification are automatically displayed.
Diffusion Tensor Tractography
Detects diffusion and anistrophy which can provide a clear image of white matter. mTensor is customisable to the users preference which automates post processed values and color maps. The calculation of tensor maps and tracks can be configured and fused with 2D or 3D data sets.
