FDA Clears Compressed SPEEDER Technology for 3T MR System

New Technology on the Vantage Galan 3T Can Help Clinicians Reduce Scan Times

Physicians can now scan faster with the newly FDA-cleared Compressed SPEEDER technology from Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. Available on the Vantage Galan 3T MR system, Compressed SPEEDER technology speeds up MRI scan times by reconstructing full resolution images from under-sampled data through iterative reconstruction.

Scan times for MRIs have historically been a challenge. To reduce acquisition times, Compressed SPEEDER supports image acceleration and can be used to avoid unfolding error artifacts sometimes seen with standard parallel imaging or can achieve higher resolution in 2D Fast Spin Echo (FSE) acquisitions. Reduced scan times also enhance patient comfort, which in turn may enable higher quality images by mitigating patient movement caused by patient discomfort during long scans.

“In advanced MR imaging, shortening scan times is vastly important for both the patient and physician,” said Jonathan Furuyama, managing director, MR Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “With the help of this new advanced imaging technology on the Vantage Galan 3T MR system, health care providers can provide a quick and comfortable exam experience for their patients.”
