High performance in image quality and speed must go hand in hand with efficient workflow. The Aquilion CXL has specifically addressed workflow integration to optimize productivity and enhance diagnosis.


Delivers clear, accurate cardiac images and enhances patient throughput and workflow by automatically selecting optimum scan parameters.

  • Automated, clinically validated protocols provide the best temporal resolution regardless of patient heart rate or condition
  • Achieve consistent Cardiac CTA with adaptive, multi-segment reconstruction
  • Decrease patient scan time through protocol automation

Reduce view time and storage space with phaseXact, which automatically selects the cardiac phase with the least motion

phaseXact Reconstruction

sureCardio Prospective


Reduce the exposure dose during ECG-gated helical scanning by changing the helical pitch according to the heart rate and restricting X-ray exposure to the required cardiac phases in synchronization with the ECG signal.

  • Developed to perform low dose cardiac CTA in a volumetric helical scan
  • Use a pulsed (ON / OFF) exposure control with higher helical pitch settings
  • Pitch selection and exposure window are chosen automatically to match the patient’s heart rate
sureCardio Scoring


Provides fast and easy evaluation of calcium based on non-contrasted, ECG-gated data directly from the Aquilion console.

  • Calculates Ca scores using the Agaston method and the volume mass method
  • A report and the representative images showing calcium are automatically generated


A comprehensive advanced visualization tool to assist clinicians in evaluating the characteristics inside the blood vessel.

  • Visualize coronary vessel anatomy and disease with ease using defined HU ranges
  • Quantify plaque burden and coronary remodeling non-invasively
  • Characterize lesions in the vessel wall as either calcified or non-calcified


Aquilion CXL supports Canon’s sophisticated suite of SURETechnologies and other advanced software tools to improve image quality, lower dose requirements and deliver the industry’s fastest data to diagnosis. Continuous development of optional field upgradable software enhancements means that when it comes to maintaining state-of-the-art capabilities, your investment is always protected.
