Canon Medical Launches New MRI System at ECR 2022

Zoetermeer, The Netherlands, 13 July 2022 – Canon Medical has unveiled the Vantage Fortian at ECR 2022. The new MRI system features innovative workflow solutions, image enhancement, and accelerated scan technology, which together contribute to reducing the time required for MRI procedures.

Featuring a mobile interface that allows remote monitoring and seamless data integration, and in-room scan assist technology that automatically checks coils and correct patient position, Vantage Fortian is designed to get patients moving from waiting-room to scan-room to home.

“Vantage Fortian was developed specifically with workflow and productivity in mind,” says Thierry Munier, European Director Magnetic Resonance at Canon Medical Systems Europe. “We have closely observed and listened to radiologists and technologists who face the challenges of ever-increasing patient loads, increasingly complex patient and healthcare system needs, and limited or reduced resources. Everyone recognizes that MRI scans generally take longer and require a more complex workflow than other modalities. So, our engineers have been focused on finding solutions that can meet today’s new demands and ensure that MRI facilities and their patients can move more and wait less.”

In line with the release of Altivity at the end of 2021 – Canon’s bold new approach to AI innovation – the Vantage Fortian incorporates machine learning and deep learning technology that enhances image quality by removing noise and restoring SNR, automates many scan procedures, and confirms set-up steps to save time and reduce errors.

The Vantage Fortian uses the Advanced intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) technology, which leverages deep learning reconstruction (DLR) technology to deliver noise-free images, especially when the procedure needs high-resolution images, highly accelerated scan time, and even both at the same time. AiCE is applicable to all anatomies and covers 96% of all MR procedures for 2D and 3D acquisition.

In addition, with compressed sensing and parallel imaging accelerated scan technologies, Canon Medical has incorporated new clinical solutions in the Vantage Fortian to address challenges across the entire MRI diagnostic workflow.

With the release of the new MRI system, Canon Medical now offers a comprehensive range of open bore 1.5T MRI systems to meet every customer need in the growing 1.5T MR market segment.

Other systems in the range, such as the Vantage Orian and Vantage Galan – Canon’s open bore 1.5T & 3T systems – will soon have the new solutions featured in the Vantage Fortian.
