Canon Medical Introduces Ultra-premium Ultrasound Systems to Enhance the Clinical Applications of Ultrasound

Aplio i-series Features Revolutionary Technology, Outstanding Image Quality, Intuitive Ergonomics and Advanced Features for Highest Diagnostic Confidence and Patient Care

Zoetermeer, February 24, 2017 – Giving healthcare providers the dramatic performance improvements needed to expand the clinical utility of ultrasound to meet the current and future challenges of the healthcare system, Canon Medical has introduced the ultra-premium Aplio™ i-series ultrasound platform. The Aplio i-series’ powerful performance helps increase diagnostic confidence substantially and offers a more cost-effective, less invasive and safe solution in imaging diagnostics and intervention.

The Aplio i-series is a new-generation, ultra-high performance, scalable platform. Specifically the Aplio i700 and Aplio i800 offer ideal solutions for Radiology and Shared Service departments with a high patient throughput.

Both systems are based on iPerformance technologies that deliver extreme processing power allowing sonographers to see more clinical detail faster and easier. A new beamforming technology – iBeam – optimizes imaging efficiency with enhanced penetration, as well as increased spatial and contrast resolution, while minimizing artifacts and clutter. The Aplio i800 offers advanced clinical applications, including Canon Medical’s exclusive intelligent Dynamic Micro Slice (iDMS) matrix probe technology. An ultra-high frequency transducer operating at up to 24 MHz opens a new horizon for clinicians to image anatomy and perfusion of superficial structures in the sub-millimeter range.

Based on the iSense design concept the Aplio i-series provides intuitive ergonomics to boost productivity in the daily routine and for complex exams. The systems offer an intuitive user interface, which visually guides the clinician through the exam to simplify system operation, while improving workflow efficiency. To make ultrasound exams easier and faster, the systems feature tablet-style touch screens and real-time Quick Scan, which optimizes the image quality automatically and instantaneously.

“The Aplio i-series sets a new standard in premium diagnostic ultrasound. The systems combine latest leading-edge imaging technology with advanced clinical applications, providing our customers the most powerful and efficient solution to meet their healthcare challenges today and into the future,” said Dr. Christoph Simm, Senior Manager of the Ultrasound Business Unit at Canon Medical Systems Europe. “The systems’ advanced workflow concept and ergonomic design are the basis for substantially enhanced patient comfort and throughput, as well as for a reduced risk of RSI for the operator.”

Canon Medical is showcasing the Aplio i700 and Aplio i800 at this year’s ECR (Booth #16, Hall X2).
