At the American College of Cardiology 2018 annual meeting, Canon has unveiled the latest version of its Aplio i900 cardiovascular ultrasound system that can be used for advanced cases such as transcatheter implantation procedures.
The system features a number of 4D capabilities such as 4D TEE transcatheter procedure guidance, as well as MVA (Mitral Valve Analysis), which helps to prep, implant, and review how the new valve is doing.
Other features include Ejection Fraction with Global Longitudinal Strain, MPI (Myocardial Performance Index), and 3D Wall Motion Tracking.
Touch screens make it easy and intuitive to use the Aplio i900, according to the company, and novice users are promised a quick start.
“The Aplio i900 offers health care providers a complete solution that delivers diagnostic confidence for a wide range of cardiovascular imaging needs, including adult, pediatric, fetal echo, stress echo and transesophageal echocardiography,” in a statement said Dan Skyba, director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “The enhanced 2D and 4D visualization made available on this new system empowers cardiologists to conduct complex cardiac imaging exams, while continuing to utilize a cost-effective, less invasive and safer tool than other traditional imaging modalities.”
