Deliver a quieter, more comfortable MR exam with Vantage Galan 3T’s patient-focused design
A successful exam begins with a comfortable patient. Vantage Galan 3T is designed to maximize patient comfort without compromising image quality. Vantage Galan‘s 71cm wide bore and short magnet creates an open feeling, and the MR theater helps to relax the patient. Combined with Canon’s uniquely quiet Pianissimo, Pianissimo Zen, and mUTE* 4D MRA technology, and you have the most patient friendly MR system available today.
*mUTE: minimized acoustic noise utilizing UTE
Quiet exams with Pianissimo and Pianissimo Zen
Pianissimo technology significantly reduces the noise in and around the MRI environment for every patient, every sequence, every time thanks to the vacuum chamber encasing the super slim gradient coil which suppresses acoustic noise. And Pianissimo Zen quiet sequences further reduce noise by up to 99%**, making exams even more comfortable and easier to complete.
** Depending on the condition of usage and examination.
Silently capturing hemodynamics with mUTE 4D MRA
Vantage Galan 3T’s UTE sequences allow for less dephasing and more homogeneous vessel signals. At the same time, the multiple TI (4D) generates dynamic images visualizing the blood flow without the need for contrast agents.
Even quieter scanning with mUTE 3D T1
The mUTE applications suppress high-speed gradient field switching, making it possible to provide even quieter scanning.
Along with a 71 cm bore opening, Vantage Galan 3T offers an immersive in-bore MR Theater option which creates a unique environment where patients hardly notice they are moving into the bore, helping to maximize comfort and put the patient at ease.
Improve imaging robustness to enhance diagnostic capability
Many patient situations present challenges with motion artifacts and distortion and contrast agent allergies. With clever approaches to these issues, delivers diagnostically relevant images to avoid re-scans.
Reverse encoding Distortion Correction DWI (RDC DWI) is intended to reduce distortion in phase encoding direction due to B0 field inhomogeneity or eddy current, in DWI sequence.
Iterative Motion Correction (IMC)
IMC is a motion correction technology for reducing motion artifacts caused by sporadic movements. Powered by Altivity, IMC utilizes Deep Learning based methods for motion correction in addition to traditional model-based correction.
pseudo-Continuous Arterial Spin Labeling (pCASL)
Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) MRI provides non-invasive methods to measure tissue perfusion without the use of external contrast agents. pCASL utilizes a fast spin echo (FSE) readout which makes it less sensitive to susceptibility artifacts and provides better image quality than other solutions.
Quick Star reduced motion artifacts can be helpful for challenging patients that have difficulty holding their breath or especially for liver examination.
An increasing awareness of the potential risks associated with gadolinium-based contrast agents has revealed the need for alternative, contrast-free MRA techniques. Non-contrast MRA sequences minimize risk to patients with sensitivity to contrast while producing exceptional diagnostic images.
