ULTRA FAST WORKFLOW
Aquilion PRIME has a new-generation platform to optimize productivity and enhance diagnosis.
STREAMLINED WORKFLOW FROM SET UP TO DIAGNOSIS
- Fast & safe patient positioning with Tech Assist Lateral Slide
- Real time dual scanogram
- Scan plan
- Scan start
- InstaView – instantaneous image reconstruction & review
- Simultaneous full resolution image reconstruction @ 30 images per second with AIDR 3D, even when scanned with Canon’s unique 0.5 mm slice thickness
FAST RECONSTRUCTION UNIT
The standard reconstruction speed of up to 30 fps can be upgraded to an extremely fast 60 fps making the results of all your examinations even faster available while your time to diagnosis is as short as possible.
ADVANCED HELICAL SCANNING
With the Aquilion PRIME, helical scans can be made using 0.5 mm x 80 rows significantly reducing scan times for all you helical scans. The newly developed reconstruction algorithm guarantees superb image quality at all scan speeds.
In case of emergencies the Aquilion PRIME short scan times and fast reconstruction assure a fast access to images just when this is needed.
80 DETECTOR ROW ULTRAHELICAL – WITH GANTRY TILT
Routine 80-row ultrahelical acquisition is 43% faster than conventional 64-detector row helical systems. This increased acquisition speed results in shorter scan times, decreased contrast usage and costs and improved image quality due to decreased movement artefacts.
Aquilion PRIME allows a full +/- 30° gantry tilt for helical acquisitions, which assists in patient positioning and decreasing dose to radiosensitive organs such as the eyes.
WORKFLOW EXPANDABILITY WITH SUREXTENSION
With the Aquilion PRIME we offer you a level of flexibility in where you would like to see the scan results.
With the additional display console and SUREXtension various configurations are available to optimal adapt the operation workflow to your daily needs.
PATIENT AND TECHNOLOGIST FRIENDLY
Every aspect of clinical performance has been considered in creating Aquilion PRIME. As a result, we improved patient comfort and clinical access, reduced need for radiation exposure and contrast media, boosted productivity while providing a new standard platform for treating a broader patient population with a wider range of applications.
INFORMATION MONITOR iSTATION
iStation displays multilingual texts and movies to guide your patients in a convenient way through the different scan procedures. For children there are colorful cartoons available showing what they have to do.
During cardiac scanning the ECG trace is displayed for operator convenience and workflow enhancement.
LARGE BORE GANTRY WITH TECH ASSIST LATERAL SLIDE
The Aquilion PRIME gantry has a 780 mm aperture, the largest available in a high-end CT system, ensuring greater patient comfort. The unique patient couch, which is accurate even with a load of 300 kg, is the only couch on the market with the technology-assisted couch top lateral sliding feature. Patient positioning has never been easier.
SMALL INSTALLATION SPACE
Innovative redesigning of Aquilion PRIME reduced the required installation area to just 14.8 m2 giving you more space to work in. This high-end multislice CT system has been made compact enough to meet even the most restrictive siting requirements.
EASY ACCESS AND LONG SCAN RANGE
The patient couch can be lowered to 33 cm above the floor. The couch can be positioned flexibly, allowing easy access for pediatric, elderly, and emergency patients.
In addition, the couch top width has been increased to 47 cm to minimize patient discomfort.
The scan range of up to 1800 mm makes it possible to cover multiple regions in a single scan setup, ideal for emergency patients. Additionally, lateral movement is possible to center the scan target without patient discomfort.
NOISE REDUCTION DESIGN BASED ON FLUID ANALYSIS
As a preventive measure against vibration, drive noise, and noise from air turbulence occurring during gantry rotation due to high scanning speeds, advanced fluid analysis has been employed in the design of the gantry.
The new gantry design reduces vibration caused by high-speed rotation, minimizing noise and improving patient comfort.
