Royal Bournemouth Hospital is first to install Aquilion One/Insight Edition CT system in the UK

The first two installations in European healthcare facilities of the Aquilion One/Insight Edition have taken place at Royal Bournemouth Hospital in the UK and the University of Strasbourg in France.

Canon Medical Systems says the CT scanner with Instinx workflow and the latest deep learning reconstruction technology simplifies complicated scans for clinicians, elevates those that are more routine, and is easy to operate, regardless of the level of experience or how specialised the scan is. With the Insight Edition, Canon says it has streamlined the design and workflow experience to enable fast, safe and efficient CT examinations.

The Aquilion One/Insight Edition’s new imaging chain features the CoolNovus x-ray tube and PureInsight detector, designed to withstand the forces generated during ultrafast 0.24 second gantry rotations. The tube is designed for precise operation at a force of 50g combined with good heat dissipation and longer tube life, while the PureInsight detector reduces electronic noise, which adds to better image quality.
