Aquilion Lightning Advanced Applications: ADAPTIVE DIAGNOSTICS
SURESubtraction and vHP (variable Helical Pitch) are Canon Medical’s unique Adaptive Diagnostic Scan modes that simplify complex protocols and provide excellent results.
Enhance diagnostic capability of pulmonary CTA studies with blood flow mapping of lung parenchyma. Advanced subtraction techniques provides iodine signal over 3 times higher compared to a dual energy acquisition.
Faster and more accurate diagnosis for CTA studies with automatic pixel perfect registration and subtraction of bones, calcium and stents.
Variable Helical Pitch (vHP) permits seamless change of scan speeds (pitch) during one continuous acquisition, and enables a combination of gated and non-gated acquisitions within one scan. vHP offers enormous benefits in examinations such as the evaluation of aortic dissection and TAVR planning.
Canon Medical’s innovative SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a sophisticated iterative reconstruction technique to virtually eliminate metallic artifact, improving visualization of implants, supporting bone and the adjacent soft tissues for a clearer and more confident diagnosis.
