Advanced tools to help you better evaluate disease

Powered by the industry’s most advanced Realtime Application Platform, Aplio 400 provides you with a complete range of exclusive, clinically proven technologies to increase your diagnostic confidence. By giving you valuable additional information in easy to understand visual, parametric and quantitative formats, these ­advanced technologies can help you avoid supplementary exams to get your diagnostic answer. Thus, you can save expenses and enhance your department’s productivity.

Crohn's diseaseContrast-Enhanced Ultrasound (CEUS)

Our comprehensive contrast imaging package allows you to assess perfusion dynamics in a wide range of clinical settings. Depending on the system configuration, up to 24 transducers support contrast-enhanced studies, including an ample variety of specialized probes such as high frequency, intra-operative, intra-cavity and 3D/4D transducers.

Benign thyroid noduleRealtime elastography

Our comprehensive elastography solution with raw data functionality assists you in localizing and assessing palpable masses with high accuracy, sensitivity and reproducibility in a wide range of clinical settings. Different degrees of tissue elasticity can be quantified or color-coded in parametric ­images making suspicious tissue changes ­quantifiable and ­visible in the ultrasonic image.


MicroPure is an innovative clinical tool that can help you ­identify microcalcifications, a potential marker for malignancy, in the breast and other organs. The technique highlights ­automatically detected calcifications as white spots in the masked 2D image. MicroPure can provide effective support for precise biopsies under realtime ultrasound control.


Left ventricleWall Motion Tracking

Canon’s proprietary speckle tracking technology provides immediate visual and quantitative access to regional myocardial wall motion with unrivalled accuracy and resolution. With Aplio you can assess and quantify parameters such as strain, strain rate or displacement during the examination or anytime later, on the console or on the workstation.

Carotid arteryAuto IMT

The intima-media thickness (IMT) of the carotid artery is an important parameter for assessing a patient’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease. Aplio provides you with an easy to use tool to determine the thickness of the intima-media layers of the near and far arterial walls automatically at an optimal angle of incidence and in two complementary planes.

Lymph node biopsyBEAM

Canon’s Biopsy Enhancement Auto Mode (BEAM) provides a clearer visualization of biopsy needles in the live ultrasound image. BEAM enhances the visibility of a biopsy needle and works with all common needle sizes. The function provides three enhancement levels and selects the best scan angle fully automatically.


Meeting your day-to-day demands with ease, Aplio is designed to grow with your clinical demands as your patient workload develops or changes. Thanks to its software-driven raw data platform, advanced clinical applications can be added to your Aplio as you need them.
