Canon Medical Systems expands Aplio line-up with new a-series

Vienna, Austria, 2 March 2018 – At the European Congress for Radiology, in Vienna, Canon will launch the new Aplio a-series, their latest diagnostic ultrasound systems that extends their product portfolio across all existing market segments.


Aplio a550 and Aplio a450 are completely new systems, designed for the Aplio a-series ultrasound product line-up. These systems build upon the Aplio i-series architecture, allowing clinicians to benefit from premium imaging performance during daily routine scanning. Canon’s unique Beam technology delivers high definition images with unparalleled clarity, enhanced penetration and less artifacts. Aplio a-series offers a wide range of advanced clinical applications combined with iSense ergonomics, producing intelligent product design and intuitive workflow that meets the high demands of today’s busy clinician.

Aplio’s robustness and shared-service capabilities also provide a reliable and flexible solution for multi-disciplinary imaging departments and hospitals striving toward a more efficient use of clinical and financial assets. Compatibility with existing Aplio (T-series) transducers enables the current Aplio* users to confidently invest in this new generation platform to grow their business.


The Aplio i-series is one of three new diagnostic ultrasound systems to be launched by Canon at ECR 2018. All products will be exhibited during ECR 2018, at the Canon booth, No 307, in Hall X3.
