Canon Medical Systems Corp., a renowned Japanese leader in healthcare equipment solutions, has reportedly expanded the power of Artificial Intelligence to routine imaging.

AiCE (Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine), the company’s DLR (Deep Learning Reconstruction) technology, has now been integrated across a wider portfolio of scanners with a broader range of clinical applications across modalities.

The AiCE features a deep learning neutral network that is capable of reducing noise and to raise signal to deliver clear, sharp and distinct images. This has further opened up doors for technological advancements in MR and CT.

Marketed by Canon Medical Systems, in the U.S., this unique technology is presently cleared on the Aquilion PrecisionTM CT systems and Aquilion ONETM / GENESIS Edition. The technology is awaiting 510(k) clearance on the Vantage GalanTM 3T and Vantage OrianTM 1.5T MR systems as well as Aquilion™ Prime SP CT systems and Aquilion ONETM/ PRISM Edition .

The capabilities of the technology include, smooth integration into routine practice, extremely high-grade images with the distinction of true signal from noise using deep learning innovation and offering a preferred quality of image over non-AI based reconstruction images.

VP of Marketing at Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc., Satrajit Misra reportedly stated that before the AiCE technology, a rebuild algorithm which created low contrast preserved detectability, considerably low noise and artifact, and preserved spatial resolution was a tool that seemed intangible without needing a rise in radiation dose or in deterring workflow.

Misra further added, with the growth of this innovative DLR method across modalities, the company has raised diagnostic imaging capabilities by providing new opportunities of advancement and clinical applications to its customers.
