Vantage Galan 3T XGO edition receives FDA clearance

Physicians now have access to more neuro and cardiac MR imaging capabilities with the Vantage Galan 3T XGO Edition from Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. Outfitted with the all-new Saturn X Gradient, the system can provide up to 30 percent improved signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for brain diffusion weighted imaging (DWI), resulting in even higher resolution neuro images than previously offered.

The newly FDA-cleared system enables sequences for quantitative analysis and allows cardiac exams to be completed with fewer breath holds and improved patient comfort. 

The Galan 3T XGO Edition offers the ability to conduct quick, comfortable and high-quality neuro imaging exams, and allows for faster sampling and higher resolution images, thanks to PURERF and Saturn technologies.

This, combined with the ability to stack protocol sequences, results in quick neuro exams, enabling health care providers to produce higher resolution images for myriad neuro exams in under five minutes.

New software that comes with the system also offers MultiBand SPEEDER technology, which allows for multiple slices to be acquired at the same time, reducing diffusion weighted imaging scan times by up to two times.

The Galan 3T XGO Edition also delivers enhanced cardiac capabilities, including T1 mapping that utilises MOdified Look-Locker Inversion recovery (MOLLI) sequence and allows providers to acquire a more quantitative characterisation of myocardial tissue within a single breath hold.

The system’s Phase Sensitive Inversion Recovery (PSIR) in the heart provides improved contrast in late-enhanced imaging and eliminates the need for inversion time (TI) calibration scan, allowing cardiac exams to be completed with fewer breath holds and greater patient comfort.

“The new Galan 3T XGO Edition with Saturn X Gradient builds on the strengths of its predecessor and expands the versatility of MR even further with faster and higher resolution images, so that physicians don’t have to sacrifice accuracy or patient comfort for speed,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc.

“With the help of this new advanced gradient and imaging package, health care providers can better meet their patients’ diverse needs, while continuing to provide a quiet and comfortable experience.”
