Move the system, not the patient
Whether in a cath lab, hybrid suite or in an operating room, Alphenix is designed around the concept that not every procedure is the same. The range of C-arm positioners provide coverage from head-to-toe and fingertip-to-fingertip.
Enhanced workflow to give you greater control and flexibility
Alphenix floor- and ceiling-mounted C-arms support complex interventional procedures with an unprecedented range of patient access and full-body coverage. The new tableside Alphenix Tablet gives you control right at your fingertips to deliver a faster, more seamless and richer work experience. The new feature-rich Alphenix Workstation better integrates applications to help you plan, analyse and perform procedures.
Navigate with confidence and accuracy
Comprehensive planning tools allow for quick and intuitive analysis prior to embolisation procedures. Using 3D volume data to select the tumor and define the corresponding feeding vessels, this information as an overlay can be viewed during live fluoro of the procedure. In multi-phase Alpha CT, visualisation of contrast media corresponds to arterial, venal and capillary blood flow providing valuable insight in identification of hepatic tumor feeding vessels.
Visualise features and devices as never before
An improved imaging chain with new hardware and software technologies provide you with faster and more assured visualisation. Superimpose 3D volume data on the live fluoro display to safely see and perform procedures with confidence.
See more of interest, with less exposure
Alphenix features an improved imaging chain, including Illuvis noise reduction technology, provides cleaner, sharper, more defined images during stent placement, embolisation or ablation procedures while minimising dose. Further dose management tools include DoseRite Spot ROI to reduce dose outside the region of interest while still allowing visualisation of the surrounding anatomy to aid device placement and DoseRite Spot Fluoro to significantly reduce patient dose as well as scatter radiation to clinical staff using asymmetric collimation.
Comprehensive dose management tools benefit patients and clinical staff
Advanced hardware significantly reduces patient dose and scatter radiation offering greater protection for the patient and clinical staff. Real-time software tools help eliminate unnecessary exposure to minimise dose and improve workflow. Enhanced dose tracking tools allow real-time estimated peak skin dose monitoring and archiving. Real-time monitoring and visualisation of dose allows the operator to choose a different approach during a long procedure, to avoid regions where dose thresholds have been exceeded.
The smart investment choice
Whatever your clinical needs, versatile space-saving configurations make refitting existing suites an economical option. Alphenix systems seamlessly integrate into your HIS and PACS networks. Improvements in functionality, speed and workflow efficiency boost system utilisation and productivity. In addition, lower energy consumption, flexible upgrade options and Canon Medical’s industry-recognised customer service, all help you get the best out the system once installed.
Flexible Configurations to Address Your Clinical Needs

Advanced ceiling-mounted C-arm offers unprecedented flexibility and full body 3D imaging capability with faster acquisition, fewer artifacts and less contrast agent.
(Ceiling-mounted and integrated with hybrid OR)
A ceiling-mounted suspended C-arm system dedicated for use with an operating table.
(Advanced ceiling-mounted system integrated with hybrid OR)
Dedicated for use with an operating table, advanced ceiling-mounted C-arm offers unprecedented flexibility and full body 3D imaging capability with faster acquisition, fewer artifacts and less contrast agent.
(Multi-access biplane system)
Combines the exception flexibility of a floor-mounted and ceiling-mounted C-arm combination, the biplane system is the ideal choice in complex interventional procedures.
Detector size choices
Alphenix interventional angiography systems are available with a choice of flat panel detectors sizes to suit your coverage needs.
20cm x 20cm
Compact detector ideal for dedicated cardiac procedures.
30cm x 30cm
Offers a good balance between anatomical coverage and projection flexibility in mixed applications.
30cm x 40cm
The size of choice for angiography when a larger field size is required.
Multiple table options are available that facilitate positioning flexibility and clinical procedure to support your needs.
“The system is really addictive. I cannot think how to treat my patients without the Alphenix 4D CT.”
Prof. Franco Orsi, Head of the Interventional Radiology department, IEO, Milan, Italy.
“The system has been really intuitive to use and we have received really good apps support from the Canon Medical team.”
Anne-Marie Jenkins, X-ray and Ultrasound Service Manager at Royal Bournemouth Hospital
“With good results and low morbidity the techniques possible with the Alphenix 4D CT system provide high-quality patient care at low medical cost.”
Prof. Alban Denys, Head of Interventional Radiology at CHUV.
“With Canon’s new Angio CT system, we have become more efficient and have been able to shorten the waiting times significantly for several interventions.”
