Innovative 1.5T MRI improves workflow with clinical confidence

Representing a new standard in the premium wide-bore 1.5T market with new technology designed to boost productivity, enhance patient comfort and deliver diagnostic clinical confidence the Vantage Orian 1.5T from Canon offers a range of innovative hardware features. These include a detachable table option enabling preparation outside the scan room, thus enhancing workflow and allowing medical staff to respond to patient requirements quickly and easily. The system also incorporates the company’s Saturn Technology for high performance imaging capability, including a new slim gradient with a maximum amplitude of 45 mT/m and a slew rate of 200 T/m/sec. Other features include PURERF Rx technology that gives an increase in Signal-to-Noise Ratio of up to 38 percent. A re-designed digital gantry interface displays important patient-related and coil information, allowing clinicians to ensure proper and complete setup without leaving the patient’s side.

The Vantage Orian also offers a suite of software enhancements to help reduce scan time and increase productivity. These enhancements include the MultiBand SPEEDER, which enables clinicians to reduce DWI acquisition times, and the k-t SPEEDER (up to x8 accelerated), which allows high frame rate cardiac cine and perfusion imaging with free breathing. The system also features EasyTech technology enabling clinicians to improve workflow with automatic slice alignment for neuro, spine and cardiac exams, as well as WFS (Water Fat Separation) DIXON, which allows clinicians to take four contrasts in just one scan to show uniform fat-suppression in difficult-to-shim areas.

Existing patient-friendly MRI features from Canon are also included in the system: the 71cm wide bore and in-bore immersive virtual experience encourages patients to relax and thus enables clinicians to produce stable, high-quality images; Pianissimo technology significantly reduces the noise in and around the MR, as well as Pianissimo Zen quiet sequences which further reduce noise to just above ambient noise level, making exams even more comfortable and easier to complete.


We are committed to offering premium diagnostic imaging tools to our customers, enabling them to deliver accurate, confident and effective patient care,” said Dirk Berneking, Senior Manager of the MR Business Unit at Canon Medical Systems Europe. “The Vantage Orian was designed to increase productivity while ensuring patient comfort and delivering uncompromised clinical confidence.
