Deliver dependable results for patients with consistent clinical outcomes and image quality
Every clinical examination is different, but busy workloads demand a streamlined workflow that consistently delivers quality results with minimal rescans. Let the smart clinical solutions in Aquilion Serve deliver that consistency.
The industry’s first 3D Landmark Scan: 3D CT scan planning at the dose level of a 2D scanogram
Aquilion Serve is equipped with the SilverBeam filter, a beam-shaping filter which leverages the photon-attenuating properties of silver to selectively remove low energy photons from a polychromatic X-ray beam, leaving an energy spectrum optimized for high contrast CT applications.
3D Landmark Scan uses the SilverBeam filter to perform a low dose helical scan at the same dose level as a 2D scanogram to acquire the data needed by for Canon’s Anatomical Landmark Detection (ALD) algorithm to accurately identify the anatomical structures required to perform automatic scan planning for all routine exams.
Automatic scan planning for all routine scans
Aquilion Serve features Automatic Scan Planning to automatically plan all routine scans including scan ranges and parameters, including dose and exposure settings, using the unique 3D Landmark Scan data and the Anatomical Landmark Detection technology.
AiCE – Sharp, clear and distinct images. At low dose.
Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) uses Deep learning innovation to distinguish true signal from noise to deliver exceptional image quality at low radiation dose.
✓ Natural Image Texture
✓ Sharp high-contrast resolution
✓ Clear low-contrast detectability

Automated clinical solutions for consistent results
Automated bone subtraction and/or iodine mapping.
In CTA examinations Angiography SURESubtraction CT (SCT) has the ability to remove bone, calcium and stents from data sets allowing clinicians an unobstructed view of the arteries.
Moreover, SURESubtraction can create iodine mapping SURESubtraction CT (SCT) to enable the assessment of the distribution of contrast media within the body to visualize local perfusion.
SURESubtraction SCT has protocol integrated automation at every step to empower even a novice operator with the skills to perform brilliantly the first time — every time.
Prior to subtraction, Canon Medical Systems’ deformable registration allows pixel matching between the pre-contrast and contrast enhanced data for precise digital subtraction and iodine mapping, saving time and improving diagnostic accuracy.
Eco-friendly design for a green future
Employing some of the best practices of environmental product design for medical equipment, Aquilion Serve has been designed to save space, reduce energy consumption and reduce resources with an ecoconscious design.
Space-saving features such as in-built cameras and rounded design contribute to easy installation and allow use in most standard CT rooms.
