Aquilion Start incorporates advanced technologies to optimise patient care and accelerate clinical decision making. Innovative features ensure that you can acquire high-quality images routinely at very low patient doses.

New PUREViSION Detector

PUREViSION Detector technology, which was introduced in our premium systems, has been adapted to achieve the perfect balance of image quality and patient dose optimised for outstanding speed in routine clinical practice.

Ultimate clinical flexibility with increased clinical confidence

Canon Medical’s advanced clinical solutions ensure excellent visualisation of vasculature in CTA studies, while Iodine Mapping provides an extra level of detail as part of your chest CTA exams.

Subtraction CTA

Superior visualisation in CTA with true subtraction of bone and calcium

Iodine Mapping

Clearly defined iodine distribution with colour blood flow maps

Integrated dose reduction—that works

Canon Medical’s 4th generation iterative reconstruction, AIDR (Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction) 3D Enhanced is fully integrated into the automatic tube current modulation software SUREExposure 3D, taking the guesswork out of optimising patient dose. The exposure dose is automatically reduced by up to 75%.

With SUREkV, the lowest kV will be selected based on patient size and SUREExposure settings for low-kVp imaging.

The clinical images illustrate the technologies described. They may not have been acquired using Aquilion Start.
