Maximise advanced cardiac ultrasound performance
As cardiac ultrasound requirements become more complex, Aplio allows you to grow your cardiac scanning capabilities over time or you can jump straight to our outstanding 3D/ 4D imaging technologies with our premium Aplio i900 ultrasound machine.
Explore every cardiac angle quickly and reliably
Aplio i900 enables you to acquire high-quality 4D volumes at high frame rate. A host of advanced analysis tools allows for in-depth assessment of cardiac anatomy and function.
Simple workflow, fast results
Aplio makes handling of 4D data sets easy. For example, at a simple touch of a button, it shows the mitral valve as seen by the surgeon to facilitate visual assessment of the leaflets for surgical planning.
Aplio’s volumetric imaging suite now features enhanced image quality, responsiveness, and operability. The new torchlight function enables better visibility of depth and detail.
Accurate quantification and reporting, regional myocardial function
Functional assessment is at the heart of cardiovascular imaging. By providing valuable additional information in easy-to-understand visual, parametric or quantitative formats, Canon Medical’s advanced clinical functions can help you get your diagnostic answer faster and more reliably.
Automated cardiac function, regional myocardial assessment
Aplio enables accurate and reproducible cardiac quantification in just a few clicks. The system automatically calculates Ejection Fraction, LV volumes and other important parameters.
Wall Motion Tracking
Aplio’s advanced Wall Motion Tracking technology provides immediate visual and quantitative access to global and regional myocardial wall motion dynamics in 2D and 3D, including layer-specific strain.
Right ventricular function
3D Wall Motion Tracking is also available for the right ventricle with functional display in the RV model as well as segmental waveforms.
Quad-chamber tracking displays the tracking of multiple cardiac chambers in one view along with waveforms.
All information in a simple overview
However complex and detailed the analysis results are, Aplio displays relevant data in a clear, easy-to understand format.
Aplio i900 provides a comprehensive set of tools to assess patient suitability for THV deployment or clipping procedures, as well as for procedural planning and monitoring.
Mitral valve analysis (MVA)
The MVA tool provides concise anatomic and functional assessment of the mitral valve. The function’s quad display offers a clear overview of different scan planes.
Aortic valve analysis (AVA)
The AVA tool is a comprehensive solution for the evaluation of patient suitability for TAVI, as well as for planning and monitoring the intervention.
Modality fusion for advanced cardiac insights
Cardiac Fusion is a unique tool to merge coronary CT images showing accurate coronary anatomy and ultrasound 3D Wall Motion Tracking, offering simultaneous display of the cardiac wall outline and function.
This tool offers automatic synchronisation to match the position of coronary CT and ultrasound volume images. By superimposing coronary 3D images and the parametric 4D LV model the function offers accurate assessment of the coronary artery disease based on both coronary anatomy and wall motion function.
Cardiac Fusion provides a variety of views and projections for better comparison and insights, including the comparison of two fusion views for pre/post or stress/rest studies. Cardiac Fusion is available on the Vitrea workstation with no loss of functionality thanks to Aplio’s raw data architecture.
Explore foetal and paediatric hearts in exceptional detail
To satisfy the sophisticated requirements of paediatric imaging, Aplio i900 offers a wide range of dedicated transducers and software tools for neonatal to adolescent imaging. Canon Medical’s advanced foetal echocardiography tools provide remarkable visualisation and quantification for every phase of the pregnancy, including the important first trimester.
Aplio allows you to determine the Myocardial Performance Index (MPI) and other timings of a foetal heart based on standard Tissue Doppler, making it a practical tool for advanced imaging with high temporal resolution.
Small and lightweight in design, the dedicated matrix array transducer for paediatric application provides data which can be very helpful for in-depth evaluation of complex cardiac malformations in 3D/4D.
Outstanding penetration, optimal signal quality for vascular imaging
Vascular exams can be very challenging. Aplio i900’s dedicated transducers provide optimal imaging resolution and sensitivity for many vascular applications, while automated scan protocols and measurements help you improve efficiency and consistency.
Canon Medical’s ultra-wideband transducers deliver outstanding imaging contrast and resolution over an extended range of depths, even in difficult-to-image patients.
TwinView enables you to display B-mode and colour Doppler side by side, allowing you to assess morphology and hemodynamics simultaneously.
SMI expands the range of visible blood flow to an impressive level of detail, enabling you for instance to visualise plaque neovascularisation right next to vascular flow.
Automated quantification and analysis tools like Auto Doppler Trace or auto-IMT measurements help you increase accuracy, consistency and speed of your exams.
