Getting to the heart of the matter

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the leading cause of death worldwide.* Furthermore, the number of patients suffering from heart failure (HF) has rapidly increased to approximately 26 million – leaving healthcare providers facing nothing short of a global pandemic.**

Thankfully, most cardiovascular diseases can be prevented by addressing key behavioral risk factors.**
However, people with a cardiovascular condition, or who are at a higher risk, still rely on early detection to get the treatment they need.

To this end, we’ve pioneered a range of cardiac imaging solutions – from the world’s first 3D Wall Motion Tracking in ultrasound to 4D dynamic imaging in CT.

Our goal is to accelerate workflow solutions to enable fast diagnosis – for even the most complex conditions – so treatment can be delivered quickly, and lives can be saved.

Canon Medical is committed to continuing to develop solutions that will directly meet the needs of the medical community in addressing this challenge. We strive to develop technology solutions that will help you impact the diagnosis and treatment while decreasing the associated financial burden on patients, communities, and countries through our philosophy — Made for Life.
