OPTIMISING THE CLINICAL WORKFLOW
Astelion is designed to handle even the busiest workloads with ease. The system’s intuitive user interface guides you step by step through the examination with modern and easy-to-understand graphics and animations. A host of intelligent functions enable a fast and efficient workflow.
Astelion offers unique navigation-mode operation that guides the operator through every step of the examination with state-of-the-art computer graphics and animation. Navigation mode is perfectly suited for novice users and part-time operators who may be required to perform scanning outside normal working hours, and enables all users to take advantage of the high performance of this multislice CT system.
A newly developed reconstruction system supports a reconstruction speed of up to 15 images per second, allowing rapid diagnosis and fast patient throughput.
COMPREHENSIVE LOW-DOSE EXAMINATION
MultiView automation saves time by reconstructing MPR images as a part of the exam protocol, reducing the number of images for initial review and/or printing.
Canon’s sophisticated clinical application software packages for various anatomical regions provide automated processing for accurate diagnosis and significant improvements in workflow.
Astelion incorporates automated bone removal algorithms to quickly and accurately segment bone in CT angiography examinations.
In just a few seconds, high-quality angiographic images are available for diagnosis.
Astelion’s user-friendly 3D imaging package allows you to generate volume images with outstanding ease of use. With a simple push of a button you select a specific protocol and the desired images are displayed.
MINIMUM SPACE – MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY
Delivering powerful performance in a small space, Astelion has been designed with a footprint of just 10.4 m2. Thanks in part to its flexible siting requirements, Astelion can be up and running in a remarkably short time.
Canon is committed to the development and manufacture of environmentally conscious products. Comprehensive optimization of the energy consumption of all system components reduces overall system power requirements. By employing energy-saving techniques such as automatic control of the gantry fan, power consumption in standby status is reduced by 40% compared to conventional systems.
AIDR 3D enables low dose, excellent image quality, and great cost performance. How does it increase patient throughput? With AIDR 3D, cooling time is eliminated, so more examinations can be performed.
