Deep Learning Spectral

A fully integrated end-to-end spectral workflow

The Aquilion ONE / PRISM Edition harnesses the temporal benefits of rapid kV switching with patient specific mA modulation and combines them with a Deep Learning Reconstruction that delivers excellent energy separation and low-noise properties.

What’s more, its fully integrated end-to-end workflow is easy to use and can be conveniently incorporated into your routine protocols.
