Canon Medical Systems’ Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition Installed at Jackson Memorial Hospital

Innovative CT Technology Enables the Hospital to Expand Services to More Patients and Increase Exam Volume

Clinicians at Jackson Memorial Hospital now have access to the latest in dynamic volume CT technology with the installation of the AquilionTM ONE / GENESIS Edition from Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. The system enables the facility to perform routine and advanced exams, including CTA, cardiac, coronary and perfusion imaging, bringing the benefits of fast, low dose CT exams to a wide range of patient populations.

“Jackson Memorial Hospital has such a high volume of CT scans performed onsite,” said Eric Haubner, radiology director at Jackson Memorial. “Since the installation of Canon Medical Systems’ technology, the number of patients imaged in our outpatient location has increased from 24 to 40 exams a day, while seeing an increase of 34 percent for pediatric exams and 30 percent for cardiac scans.”

“The exam time on the Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition has low dose exposure, allowing for high productivity and image quality without compromising patient comfort and safety,” adds Edward Cariaga, CT supervisor at Jackson Memorial. “The scanner’s couch also permits up to 694 pounds, which has helped us competitively in our region as the only CT scanner capable of imaging bariatric and larger patients.”

The Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition features an optimized beam spectrum based on PUREViSION Optics and the PUREViSION CT Detector, which can acquire up to 16 cm of 0.5 mm volumetric data every rotation of the gantry. With AIDR 3D reconstruction times up to 80 images per second, exams are fast and low dose for young patients. Additionally, the system is small and light and consumes less power, fitting into a footprint of only 204 square feet (19 square meters), with a short bore, flared design and 30-degree tilting gantry.

“We designed the Aquilion ONE / GENESIS Edition to make innovative technology accessible to providers in an everyday clinical setting and to establish themselves as market leaders,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “The system helps clinicians achieve a more complete diagnosis with the ability to see more, while the patient-friendly features, including the high weight capacity couch and large bore, as well as significant reductions in radiation dose and noise levels, are especially important for imaging more vulnerable patient populations such as bariatric and children.”
