Adaptive Diagnostics

Solving your challenges with advanced, clinically proven tools.

Innovative solutions unique to Canon Medical Systems to solve clinical challenges. Simplified workflow with consistent quality results.

Automated bone subtraction and/or iodine mapping.


In CTA examinations SURESubtraction has the ability to remove bone, calcium and stents from data sets allowing clinicians an unobstructed view of the arteries.
Moreover, SURESubtraction can create iodine maps to enable the assessment of the distribution of contrast media within the body to visualize local perfusion.

SURESubtraction has protocol integrated automation at every step to empower even a novice operator with the skills to perform brilliantly the first time — every time.

Prior to subtraction, Canon Medical Systems’ deformable registration allows pixel matching between the pre-contrast and contrast enhanced data for precise digital subtraction and iodine mapping, saving time and improving diagnostic accuracy.

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction


Canon Medical Systems’ SEMAR (Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction) utilizes a sophisticated iterative reconstruction technique to reduce metallic artifact, improving visualization of implants, supporting bone and the adjacent soft tissues for a clearer and more confident diagnosis. SEMAR can be set in the scan protocol so the reconstructions are fully automatic requiring no additional operator input.


More efficient use of X-rays

PUREVISION Detector Technology

Maximizing Canon Medical Systems’ ceramics expertise with a detector cut from a solid ingot using microblade cutting technology to minimize imperfections and maximize quantum efficiency.

Optimizing the Clinical Workflow

Aquilion Lightning™ is designed to handle even the busiest workloads with ease. The system’s intuitive user interface guides you step by step through the examination with modern and easy-to-understand graphics and animations. A host of intelligent functions enable a fast and efficient workflow.

Fast Reconstruction

A newly developed reconstruction system supports a reconstruction speed of up to 15 images per second, assisting with rapid review and fast patient throughput.

MPR Image Generation—Multiview

MultiView automation saves time by reconstructing MPR images as a part of the exam protocol, reducing the number of images for initial review and/or printing.

Automated Bone Removal

Aquilion Lightning™ incorporates automated bone removal algorithms to quickly and accurately segment bone in CT angiography examinations. In just a few seconds, high-quality angiographic images are available for diagnosis review.
