Canon introduces Aquilion Serve SP to ease workload pressure on CT departments

Canon Medical Systems has introduced the Aquilion Serve SP CT system to the UK. The system supports faster throughput with more time for the patient, consistent imaging results with less training and better image quality with a lower radiation dose. The new CT platform has been developed to help ease mounting pressures on healthcare professionals from increasing workloads, imaging needs that have become more complex, staff shortages, financial limitations and the growing need for better sustainability, says Canon.

Through easy-to-learn operations, the Aquilion Serve SP reduces training time for staff. In addition, the system’s 40 per cent reduction in workflow steps saves time.

The system features Instinx, Canon Medical’s holistic workflow solution that the company says creates new standards in efficiency and consistency and was designed to enhance every aspect of the imaging chain.

Instinx comes with a 24 per cent reduction in time to perform scan planning and a 97 per cent accuracy in setting the scan range, including the field of view. Its ease of use is said to ensure consistency in scanning when used by mul-tiple technologists, enabling more flexible staff allocation.

“Combining the power of Canon Medical AI-enabled technologies with a completely redesigned workflow that makes scanning easier than ever, the Aquilion Serve SP is designed to meet all clinical needs with superior performance,” said European director CT Roy Verlaan.
