Marketed in the US by Canon Medical Systems USA Inc., this technology is currently cleared on the Aquilion ONE/GENESIS Edition and Aquilion Precision CT systems, and is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) clearance on the Aquilion ONE/PRISM Edition and Aquilion Prime SP CT systems, as well as the Vantage Galan 3T and Vantage Orian 1.5T MR systems.* Capabilities include:
- High-quality images with the differentiation of true signal from noise through deep learning innovation to match the spatial resolution and low-noise properties of advanced scanning and reconstruction.
- Seamless integration into routine practice.
- Preferred image quality over non-AI reconstruction images following a clinical evaluation in MR, and where previously in CT, advanced approaches like MBIR had limited adoption due to perceived artificial texture. (Aquilion ONE/GENESIS Edition with Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) image noise appearance is more similar to standard filtered back projection than FiRST).
“Prior to our Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) technology, a reconstruction algorithm that produced preserved low contrast detectability, preserved spatial resolution, and markedly reduced noise and artifact—without requiring an increase in radiation dose or deterring workflow—was a tool that seemed intangible,” said Satrajit Misra, vice president, Marketing, Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. “With the expansion of this unique DLR method across modalities, we’re elevating diagnostic imaging capabilities for our customers by providing new opportunities for advancement and clinical applications.”
