CT City Hopper

Clinical Confidence Anywhere

With screening programs becoming more important in today’s challenge to find cancer in an early stage, the question is, how to get as many as possible eligible people scanned in an easy way.
The CT City Hopper is Canon Medical’s Mobile Imaging Solution that is most flexible moving from location to location, an ideal addition to support a cancer screening project.

CT City Hopper

During the Canon Medical Oncology Days, Dr. Hazard and Dr. Viteri explained their experience in setting up lung cancer screening programs, aided by a Mobile Imaging Solution:

“The Mobile Imaging Solution with a Prime SP CT allows us to capture very good clinical images with nice definitions to be able to detect more findings compared to X-rays and with an ultra-low dose.”

PUREViSION Optics: The optimal balance between image quality and dose

Jay Vaishnav, PhD Clinical Scientist, Manager, Medical Affairs, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc.

vHP3*—Variable Helical Parameters

Overall faster scan times make vHP3 compliant to the needs of the patient, and shorten exam times for trauma imaging when every second is critical.
With this technology, a single series reconstruction enables several studies to be interpreted simultaneously for faster scans when every second counts.
vHP3 may also help you:

  • Decrease radiation dose
  • Decrease the amount of IV contrast needed
  • Improve the workflow of complex clinical exams



Easy Patient Positioning

Aquilion Prime SP’s accessible gantry and couch have been designed for enhanced comfort, particularly for bariatric patients or those who are elderly and living with cancer.


Aquilion Prime SP’s accessible gantry design and powerful advanced imaging applications deliver an ideal oncology solution to assist clinicians with visualization, staging and treatment planning.

SilverBeam Filter

The detail of a CT at the dose on the order of an X-ray exam

SilverBeam, a beam shaping energy filter, leverages the photon-attenuating properties of silver to selectively remove low energy photons from a polychromatic X-ray beam, leaving an energy spectrum optimized for lung cancer screening.
