Expanding on its premium cardiovascular ultrasound system, which delivers a complete solution for structural heart analysis, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. has introduced the latest version to its Aplio i900.
These new capabilities enable cardiologists to see more with excellent imaging clarity and definition for quick and reliable diagnoses. The Aplio i900 system is part of the premium Aplio i-series ultrasound platform, providing cardiologists and cardiovascular sonographers easy access to all-new 4D imaging features such as 4D TEE transcatheter procedure guidance with advanced quantitative technologies, including MVA (Mitral Valve Analysis), which delivers fast valve analysis during planning, implantation and post-op evaluation.
The system boasts automated analysis and measurement tools including Ejection Fraction with Global Longitudinal Strain, MPI (Myocardial Performance Index) and 3D Wall Motion Tracking to help identify early stages of cardiac disease and quantify cardiac function with enhanced detail. The all-new 4D features expand cardiovascular ultrasound imaging capabilities, while streamlining the learning curve for new users.
Delivering extreme processing power with iPerformance, the system enables health care providers to give reliable and quick diagnoses. Improving productivity during exams, the Aplio i900 provides intuitive ergonomics with iSense and touch-control screens, and real-time quick scan which makes automatic image adjustments without pushing a button.
“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,” said Dan Skyba, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc.
“The enhanced 2D and 4D visualisation made available on this new system empowers cardiologists to conduct complex cardiac imaging exams, while continuing to utilise a cost-effective, less invasive and safer tool than other traditional imaging modalities.”
