Aquilion Precision Receives FDA Clearance

Canon Medical Systems USA Inc.’s newly FDA-cleared Aquilion Precision is the world’s first Ultra-High Resolution CT system (UHR CT). The system can resolve anatomy as small as 150 microns and is designed to provide more than twice the resolution, typically seen only in cath labs. Containing an all-new detector as well as tube, gantry and reconstruction technologies, the system may make it possible to help expand visualization of disease thanks to new features that offer improved image detail.

The Aquilion Precision CT system features dose efficiency with detector channels that are only 0.25 mm thick. This, combined with substantial improvements in scintillator quantum efficiency, detector circuitry and other DAS components, results in a dose-efficient detector with ultra-high resolution capabilities. The system features the industry’s smallest Focal Spot Tube at 0.4 mm x 0.5 mm and the industry’s first routine 1024 x 1024 Reconstruction Matrix.

“The increased amount of information delivered by the Aquilion Precision opens new doors for health care providers,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Canon Medical Systems USA. “The system delivers higher resolution images than other systems on the market, enabling customers to deliver better patient care.”
