Suzanne Adams comments, “We reviewed a number of machines from different manufacturers before deciding that Canon not only met all our clinical needs, but went beyond our expectations. Image quality and the wide range of advanced system functions were the main deciding factors in selecting the system. With the advanced functions offered by the Aplio 500 we have been able to increase the range of work we are able to perform, including oral contrast and 3D gynaecology.” Suzy continues, “The applications and service support offered by Canon has been excellent. They have been able to accommodate one-to-one training as well as radiologists performing specialist scans. Overall, I have been impressed with Canon’s professionalism as well as their excellent equipment.”
The Canon Aplio 300 is a reliable, cost-effective and versatile system, offering superior imaging with outstanding depth and detail for the widest range of clinical specialties. In addition, comprehensive onboard facilities allow the user to review, manage and report on studies conveniently on the system, or in a network environment.
