Computed Tomography

We revolutionized Computed Tomography in 2007 with the introduction of the Aquilion ONE Area Detector CT. Next to routine anatomical imaging, it provided access to high-resolution isotropic 160 mm volume datasets to visualize joint movement or any other 4D dynamic process. Dynamic volume scanning is able to capture the often complex mechanical abnormalities causing the patients symptoms.

As such, superior treatment decisions can be made for a wide variety of musculoskeletal functional disorders. In addition, dynamic volume imaging is able to capture perfusion with the administration of contrast medium, and has therefor revolutionized the way tumors of the musculoskeletal system can be assessed.

Global Illumination

Global Illumination is a new revolutionary 3D/4D rendering technique to help provide a more photorealistic view of human anatomy, available within existing Vitrea Advanced Visualization workflows. Users can stay at the forefront of their industry by using new cutting-edge real-time photorealistic rendering techniques delivered by Global Illumination, share findings more easily with both Multi-Disciplinary Teams and patients as well as seamlessly integrate photorealistic images into routine clinical workflow.

True 4D CT MSK imaging made possible

With Canon's dynamic volume CT technology, true 4D imaging can be obtained of selected joints within the body including the wrist, elbow, ankle, knee, shoulder, S/C joints and A/C joints.

Dynamic volume CT scans will provide the clinician with unique 4D information about joint motion. The high resolution 4D information provided by these scans is not available using other techniques, including X-ray, Ultrasound and MRI.

Single Energy Metal Artifact Reduction


SEMAR utilizes a sophisticated iterative reconstruction technique to reduce metallic artifact, improving visualization of implants, supporting bone and the adjacent soft tissues for a clearer and more confident diagnosis. SEMAR can be set in the scan protocol so the reconstructions are fully automatic requiring no additional operator input.
