Multi-modality innovations and relocatable imaging facilities on display

In tune with this year’s UK Imaging and Oncology Congress (UKIO) ‘Personalise & Humanise’ theme, Canon Medical Systems UK will be on stand 2, 10-12 June in Liverpool, to demonstrate the company’s #madeforlife ethics and ethos, alongside its equipment innovations and service offerings. This includes a new interventional imaging product launch, CT, MRI and ultrasound equipment showcases, plus a relocatable modality imaging unit.

A new family of interventional imaging systems will be presented to UKIO delegates by Canon Medical Systems UK during the event. The Alphenix range was first previewed at ECR, boasting great clarity and precision for interventional radiology and cardiology, plus a unique dose tracking technology to help operators managed patient procedural dose. Canon Medical Systems will also be presenting the exceptional features of Hi-Def Detector technology (High-Definition Flat Panel Detector) available on the Alphenix Biplane and Alphenix Core+. Hi-Def systems are designed to help clinicians see fine details during procedures such as stent positioning and stent apposition, wire and catheter navigation through the stent struts, and observation of coil deployment.

The market leading CT Aquilion ONE GENESIS Edition will feature on the Canon Medical Systems UK stand alongside the Vantage Orian Premium 1.5T and Aplio iSeries ultrasound products. Information on healthcare IT solutions from Canon Medical Systems including the Vitrea® range of modular, multi-modality and multi-vendor advanced visualisation applications will also be available. This will include Global Illumination, an alternative 3D rendering technique to provide photorealistic anatomy images for communication and education needs between peers, specialists and patients; Bayesian CT Brain Perfusion for assessing in 4D cerebral blood flow and perfusion disturbances within the brain; and Olea MRI post-processing tools. Underpinning all product and solution showcases will be information on the Canon Medical Systems’ ‘Applications for Life’ programmes and wide range of highly rated education and training resources.

Outside the UKIO exhibition building, a relocatable imaging unit part of a fleet managed by Canon Medical Systems UK will be positioned for delegates to tour. The versatility of the multi-modality units can help imaging departments flex up service capacity during screening projects, winter pressures, or ensure continuity of service during building works or scheduled maintenance.

Additionally, the British Institute of Radiology / Canon Memorial Lecture will take place at UKIO on Monday 10 June at 12.45 given by Professor Mathias Prokop, Head of Radiology and Nuclear Medicine at Radboud University in the Netherlands, titled, ‘advanced computer analysis in oncologic imaging: a necessity or a hype?’. Canon Medical Systems UK sponsors the BIR award which recognises values, skills and contributions in medical imaging.

“We’re looking forward to being part of the inaugural UK Imaging and Oncology Congress, the largest multidisciplinary imaging and oncology conference in the UK,” states Maiko Davison, Head of Marketing and Presales Operations at Canon Medical Systems UK. “Our specialist team of product and service representatives are the same people that delivered service excellence under our former company name Toshiba Medical Systems. We will all be on hand to discuss the needs of UK healthcare institutions and detail how our multi-modality range of systems and service can support radiologists, radiographers, sonographers and management teams into the future.”
