Premium 1.5T MRI system
Canon Medical Systems Corporation enters the premium 1.5T MRI market with the launch of its new Vantage Orian system. Vantage Orian is one of Canon Medical Systems’ first major product releases since officially changing their company name from Toshiba Medical on January 4, 2018, and represents a major foray into the premium wide bore 1.5T market along with new technology designed to boost productivity, enhance patient comfort and deliver diagnostic clinical confidence to users and patients alike.
With a new slim gradient that delivers a gradient performance with a maximum amplitude of 45 mT/m, combined with a slew rate of 200 T/m/s that enhances high resolution and diffusion imaging, Vantage Orian offers high performance imaging capability previously not available on 1.5T systems from Canon Medical Systems and utilizes migrated high-end 3T technology. Canon Medical System’s PURERF and Saturn Gradient technology means that stable and consistent imaging performance is ensured, increasing signal to noise ratio (SNR) by up to 38%.
The Vantage Orian offers a range of new Rapid Scan and Easy Tech technology that reduces scan time and helps improve workflow. A redesigned gantry interface and dockable table ensure seamless patient handling. New applications like Multiband SPEEDER, that shortens acquisitions such as high angular resolution diffusion imaging (HARDI), and up to x8 accelerated k-t SPEEDER allows high frame rate cardiac cine and perfusion imaging with free breathing.
Vantage Orian also offers one of the smallest footprints in the 1.5T wide-bore class and low power consumption eco features that reduce energy use by up to 21%. The reliable system is equipped with excellent maintenance programs to satisfy the needs of hospital administrators.
A relaxed patient is key in MRI, and Vantage Orian features quiet scan sequences that reduce ambient noise by Pianissimo Zen technology. The 71cm wide bore and immersive virtual MR Theater are designed to put patients at ease. Vantage Orian also addresses challenging patients with Pediatric SPEEDER coils, contrast- free applications and ForeSee View for simplified scan planning.
