Aquilion lightning

Better care. Safer imaging.

Aquilion Lightning™, Canon Medical Systems’ 16-row 32 slice* helical CT system for whole-body imaging, employs cutting-edge technologies to optimise patient care and accelerate clinical decision making. Innovative features ensure that high-quality isotropic images are routinely acquired with low patient dose. The workflow is streamlined, increasing patient throughput. And a wide range of advanced 3D and post processing applications provide clinical flexibility.

Runoff CTA

63-year-old male. CT Runoff Angiography was performed with SUREExposure and SUREkV, automatic mA modulation and kV selection. Multiplanar Reconstructions (MPR) and 3D Volume Rendered images demonstrate bilateral iliac-femoral artery occlusion; right axillary femoral bypass graft and a left aortofemoral bypass graft with restored blood flow to both femoral arteries. Severe diffuse atherosclerotic disease and aortic aneurism pre-bifurcation is also demonstrated. Blood flow is seen bilaterally in the extremities.
