Refine and redefine intervention using our High Definition technology

The time has come to visualize complex and intricate anatomy with a level of detail you never thought possible. Canon Medical’s Hi-Def imaging1 mode allows you to effortlessly zoom the image up to 1.5 inches at 76 micron resolution without losing image quality, helping clinicians visualize fine details, anatomical structures and deploy devices with accuracy and confidence. Discover clinical advantages now available on the world’s first 12" × 16” True Hi-Def Detector for Interventional Radiology (IR), Oncology (IO), Neurology (IN), and Cardiology (IC).

1:  True Hi-Def imaging with 76 micron pixel modes. Documented testing has demonstrated imaging capability with up to 2.5 times greater spatial resolution than conventional detectors.
12" × 12" detector is available for Alphenix Core +, Alphenix Biplane, and 12" × 16" one is available for Alphenix Core +, Alphenix Biplane. Alphenix Sky +, Alphenix 4D CT.

Refine and Redefine Intervention Using High-Definition (Hi-Def) Technology

The latest clinical data shows that the enhanced visualization on offer can result in reducing both procedure time and the overall exposure dose required. It really is the best of both worlds: additional Hi-Def modes with consistent low dose performance.

Initial experience using a novel high definition (Hi-Def) imaging system in peripheral arterial interventions

A newly developed high definition (Hi-Def) detector allows imaging with a resolution of 76 microns – more than twice that of standard technologies. This unique system consists of a conventional flat-panel detector (FPD) with embedded high-resolution modes, and is the first technology of its kind to help guide peripheral interventions.

“Our initial experience using a novel Hi-Def imaging system shows that it can effectively be used in real-time to improve visualization of lower extremity vasculature and interventional devices during complex peripheral arterial interventions and may be used to improve technical outcomes.”
