Computed Tomography in Cardiology
Volumetric CT allows you to scan patients while maintaining an extremely high success rate, even in unselected patients. Each scan provides incredible motion-free images of the coronary arteries with homogeneous contrast enhancement. Combined with AiCE (Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine), the Deep Learning Reconstruction, unmatched image quality is routinely obtained.
AiCE – Deep Learning Reconstruction
AiCE is a revolutionary approach to CT reconstruction that leverages Deep Learning Neural Networks providing superb image quality, three to five times faster than traditional model based iterative reconstruction techniques.
Ultra-High Resolution CT
Clear visualization inside a coronary stent and detailed plaque delineation with Ultra-High Resolution CT. The Aquilion Precision is the world’s first UHRCT capable of resolving anatomy as small as 150 microns, providing CT image quality with resolution typically seen only in cath labs.
Myocardial Perfusion Imaging
Accurate identification of flow-limiting lesions requiring revascularization using myocardial perfusion imaging. Whole-heart acquisition in a single rotation at ultra-low dose using Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition.
Detailed pre-procedural planning, including applications to guide you through structural heart disease or EP interventions.
“ With Canon’s unique Volume CT systems we acquire the entire functional heart in one single rotation.”
