Canon Demonstrates How AI Can Help to Drive Workflow in COVID-19 Era

Canon (Tokyo, Japan) showcased its innovations in the field of radiology at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) virtual event, March 3-10, 2021 held in Vienna, Austria.

This year’s ECR was an entirely virtual event due to the ongoing pandemic with attendees experiencing one of the biggest online programs in radiology ever, featuring state-of-the-art science, education and research presented by medical imaging professionals from across the world. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has introduced or aggravated many workflow challenges and has forced healthcare providers to rapidly adapt in order to maintain a safe and effective delivery of care. At Canon’s symposium “AI Driven Workflow in COVID-19 Era” the company dived into the continuing COVID-19 pandemic with short presentations of well-known experts from the radiology field.

The symposium began with explaining how relocatable CT & MR imaging systems helped overcome infrastructure limitations in a period of increased demand. Also, maintaining image quality while reducing examination times has been crucial. The impact of Deep Learning Reconstruction in combination with other innovative technologies on image quality and workflow was addressed in consecutive talks for CT and MR. Attendees also learnt the experience from an interventional radiologist how to orchestrate complex team work, including the installation and set-up of a 4D CT Angio Suite and interventional procedures during the peak of the crisis. Finally, the symposium closed with practical tips and tricks of how an interdisciplinary ultrasound center under COVID-19 dealt with the situation and in fact improved the overall efficiency of their clinical pathways.

Among other products and technologies which were a part of Canon’s ECR showcased this year were Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE), the world’s first MR Deep Learning Reconstruction technology; the Aplio i-series, Aplio a-series and Xario 200G systems for diagnostic ultrasound in oncology; and the Alphenix 4D CT systems that allows to switch easily between CT and angiography to diagnose, treat or verify.

At ECR 2021, Canon also demonstrated Adora DRFi, a hybrid solution that combines static and dynamic radiography with low dose fluoroscopy in one system; the Vantage Elan / NX Edition with AI that delivers next generation MRI in a compact system with best in class power consumption; the Ultimax-I FPD system' with a multipurpose design that provides routine angiography lab quality capabilities; the Aquilion ONE / PRISM Edition that combines its AiCE technology with Deep Learning Spectral to create a CT system that’s designed for deep intelligence; and the all-new Aquilion Exceed LB with powerful AI-based imaging technologies and advanced treatment-specific features allow for an efficient radiation oncology workflow without compromising on patient position, image quality, or reproducibility.
