Last March, Canon Medical participated in the online ECR Overture with an interesting package of activities that you can view on demand.
The activities included:
- A fascinating interview by Prof. Carlo Catal, Vice President ESR, with our President & CEO, Toshio Takiguchi
- An interesting Satellite Symposium with expert speakers and five in-depth product presentations.
“Outcomes driven innovation” was our focus point during the ECR Overture edition and you will see more of this during the ECR Summer Edition in July. Vew all of the Presentations content on our Resources page and let us inspire you in the build-up to the on-site event in Vienna!
Watch here the fascinating interview by Prof. Carlo Catal, Vice President ESR, with our President & CEO, Toshio Takiguchi. The interview was originally broadcasted and is still available on-demand via the ESR Connect platform.
Our Satellite Symposium was held during ECR 2022, on Thursday, March 3rd 2022 , and broadcasted LIVE through ESR Connect, the virtual learning platform of the European Society of Radiology.
Streamed live around the world from the ECR Studio in Vienna, the Canon Medical satellite symposium focus on Outcomes driven innovation in Stroke. Speakers for this event are: Mahtab Zamani (Norway), Anton Meijer (Netherlands), Josep Puig (Spain) and Adnan Siddiqui (USA). Our Satellite Symposium was held during ECR 2022, on Thursday, March 3rd 2022, and broadcasted LIVE through ESR Connect, the virtual learning platform of the European Society of Radiology.
Title Symposium: Stroke – Multimodality Insights Into the Patient Pathway
When: Thursday, March 3rd 2022, 15:00-16:00
Join through: ESR Connect
Stroke – Multimodality Insights Into the Patient Pathway
Globally, stroke is a leading cause of mortality and disability with the World Stroke Organization reporting an annual mortality rate of 5 and a half million people*. Additionally, up to 50% of survivors have chronic disability posing a major public health problem and substantial economic burden. Identifying who is at risk for stroke, how to make the best decisions and perform complex procedures under such time pressure, all will be covered in this symposium session. Join our panel of experts to learn how guidelines updates and revised recommendations translate into clinical practice.

Presentation title: Detection of neovascularization with advanced ultrasound method (SMI) without using contrast material
A significant proportion of ischemic strokes are caused by an emboli from an unstable atherosclerotic carotid artery plaque. Intraplaque neovascularization (IPN) plays a key role in plaque instability. Conventional Doppler ultrasound cannot detect IPN, partly due to application of motion wall filter in order to remove clutter. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can detect IPN, but it requires an intravenous injection of contrast material. Superb microvascular imaging (SMI) however uses an algorithm to remove clutter and motion wall artefacts while preserving low-velocity blood flow as such seen in IPN, without the use of contrast material. Allowing visualization of IPN. The aim of the study included in this presentation was to assess the feasibility of SMI as a bedside non-invasive method for detection of IPN.

Presentation title: State-of-the-art brain CT perfusion in acute ischemic stroke
Recent and future developments of brain CT perfusion will be addressed, focused on clinical application in acute ischemic stroke. The advantages of a wide-detector CT and the Bayesian method will be illustrated. In addition, advanced scanning protocols will be discussed.

Presentation title: Diffusion tensor imaging as a biomarker for stroke patients
We will review the technical fundamentals of DTI sequence and its role in predicting clinical recovery after stroke, with special interest on motor function, in monitoring treatment response, and in evaluating WM remodeling. We will critically appraise DTI studies and discuss their limitations, and we will explore directions for future study. Three main strategies to quantify stroke-related WM damage have been proposed: measuring fractional anisotropy distal to the stroke area, measuring the number of fibers that go through the stroke with tractography, and measuring the overlap between the stroke and a DTI map derived from healthy age- and gender-matched controls.
Speaker: Prof. Adnan Siddiqui, MD, PhD
Professor and Vice Chairman in the Department of Neurosurgery (UBNS) at the State University of New York at Buffalo’s Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences

Prof. Siddiqui will show the performance of endovascular techniques for the comprehensive management of acute ischemic stroke. By using a bi-plane interventional X-Ray system equipped with a high definition detector for best-in-class visualization of stents and guidewires. Resulting in more safe procedures and better outcomes for the patient.
