Aplio’s 22MHz hockeystick provides the high frequency needed for the most demanding small parts examinations.
Canon Medical Systems’ innovative Superb Micro-vascular Imaging (SMI) technology expands the range of visible blood flow and provides visualization of low velocity microvascular flow never before seen with ultrasound.
» SMI has improved dramatically to visualize the micro-vascular changes using the abdominal and linear transducers, adding more diagnostic information.«
» I was especially impressed by the B-mode image produced by the high quality matrix probes on Aplio i800, the improved resolution has enabled us to provide high level musculoskeletal procedures which are at this stage unique to our practice – including percutaneous finger pulley release and foreign body removal, each performed with real time ultrasound guidance on this platform.«

The foreign body was found to be located within the flexor tendon altering surgical management for this patient using 24MHz probe.
Innovative technologies such as SMI or Smart 3D are also available on specialty transducers for advanced exams such as the quantitative assessment of inflammation in small joints.
This high resolution cross section of the median nerve is acquired using the high frequency 22MHz hockeystick probe.
Ultra-high imaging resolution to examine layered structures with sub-millimeters precisions.
Wood splinter removal acquired with the 22MHz probe. iDMS technology is being used to provide a uniform and crisp image throughout the field of view.
An injection in to the sub-acromial bursae using 18 MHz probe. The B-mode technology provides exceptional contrast resolution for accurate needle visualization during interventional procedures.
The outstanding resolution of Aplio’s high-frequency transducers can help identify fine detail such as layered structures and small lesions in tendons, ligaments or peripheral nerves.
A panoramic view of the calf muscles with the Aplio a550 system. With the aBeam technology, the planes (fascia) between the different muscle groups can be clearly seen - along with the fibers within the muscles.
High resolution internal detail of achilles degeneration using 18MHz probe with Precision and ApliPure.
The extended quantification range on Aplio i-series / Prism Edition now enables the application of SWE to stiffer body parts such as tendons or ligaments.
Smart 3D is a simple way to add volume-imaging capability to Aplio’s convex and linear transducers, supporting all modes including Supeb Micro-vascular Imaging (SMI) or Shear Wave Elastography (SWE).
