The new Aplio i900 cardiovascular ultrasound system will provide cardiologists with better imaging clarity, helping to quickly diagnose the conditions.

With the new Aplio i900 system, the cardiologists and cardiovascular sonographers can access new 4D imaging capabilities such as 4D TEE transcatheter procedure guidance with advanced quantitative technologies, including MVA (mitral valve analysis), helping to deliver fast valve analysis during planning, implantation and post-op evaluation.

Canon’s new system features automated analysis and measurement tools such as ejection fraction with global longitudinal strain, myocardial performance index (MPI) and 3D wall motion tracking, which will help to identify early stages of cardiac disease and measure cardiac function in detail.

The system is also provided with advanced iSense and touch-control screens, and real-time quick scan that makes automatic image adjustments without pushing a button.

The company is exhibiting the new version of Aplio i900 cardiovascular ultrasound system at this year’s American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2018 annual meeting in Orlando, which is being held from 10 March to 12 March.

Canon Medical Systems USA ultrasound business unit director Dan Skyba said: “The Aplio i900 offers health care providers a complete solution that delivers diagnostic confidence for a wide range of cardiovascular imaging needs, including adult, pediatric, fetal echo, stress echo and transesophageal echocardiography.

“The enhanced 2D and 4D visualization made available on this new system empowers cardiologists to conduct complex cardiac imaging exams, while continuing to utilize a cost-effective, less invasive and safer tool than other traditional imaging modalities.”

Canon Medical Systems is a joint venture established by two firms Canon and Toshiba Medical.

Canon Medical Systems USA supplies radiology and cardiovascular systems, including CT, MR, ultrasound, X-ray and interventional X-ray equipment, to the customers.
