New innovation designed to power productivity, boost clinical confidence & support UK radiography resource pressures, now and into the future
Canon Medical Systems’ new Vantage Orian MRI system will take centre stage on stand 97 at UKRCO, 2-4 July 2018 in Liverpool. It is the company’s major foray into the premium wide-bore 1.5T market and addresses many of the challenges facing the UK health environment such as increasing patient numbers and specialist resource shortages.
The Vantage Orian MRI will introduce ‘ForeSee View’ as a standard scan planning tool that will help junior and experienced radiographers with procedure planning to deliver accurate and swift image acquisition without the need for repeats. It is particularly useful in anatomies that can be difficult to plan such as pancreas, heart and certain orthopaedic joints.
Quick scanning speeds will further fuel productivity meaning that more patients can be seen during service hours. This will help to meet waiting targets, provide emergency frontline support and deliver a much-needed boost to morale in UK imaging departments. New fast 3D functionality, for example, can reduce scan times by up to 50%* for different contrast weighted images at the same time as maintaining homogeneity and fat suppression.
Vanessa Ellis, MR Product Specialist at Canon Medical Systems UK states, “This is an exciting new product launch in the UK for people seeking a MRI that is fast, easy-to-use and versatile for high productivity and clinical confidence. This builds on our existing MRI portfolio, stepping into the premium end of the market as we innovate in tune with the needs of target audiences and under our new brand R&D strategies.”
The Vantage Orian offers a range of new Rapid Scan and Easy Tech technology that further reduces scan time and helps improve workflow. A redesigned gantry interface and dockable table ensure easy patient handling. Plus, new applications like Multiband SPEEDER, that can reduce scan times for diffusion imaging by at least half, expanding the range of clinical applications; and achieve up to x8 accelerated imaging with k-t SPEEDER for high frame rate cardiac cine and perfusion imaging with free breathing.
The Vantage Orian is also compact in size, with one of the smallest footprints in the 1.5T wide-bore class and adheres to Canon Medical System’s carbon consciousness featuring a low power eco feature that reduces energy use by up to 21%**. Patient friendly features include a slim and compact design, wide 71cm bore to put people at ease, and a whisper quiet procedure from Pianissimo™ and Pianissimo Zen technology.
Information on the Canon Medical Systems’ Applications for Life Programme will also be available to visitors at UKRCO. The scheme provides complimentary lifetime support for customers to ensure maximum system know-how to meet imaging service demands. This includes continual knowledge development on new scanning techniques, training in tune with staff changes and access to CPD accredited study days.
The Vantage Orian was first launched into Europe at ECR 28 February – 2 March 2018.
