Canon Medical Systems USA’s Advanced Intelligent Clear-IQ Engine (AiCE) for the Aquilion Precision™ ultra-high resolution computed tomography (CT) system has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food And Drug Administration (FDA). The AiCE uses a deep learning algorithm to differentiate signal from noise so that it can suppress noise while enhancing signal, and is available for use on both the Aquilion Precision and Aquilion ONE/GENESIS Edition™.
The Tustin, CA-headquartered company said that with AiCE, the system now enables clinicians to perform super-high resolution studies at doses equivalent to standard resolution CT (with traditional hybrid iterative reconstruction techniques). AiCE learns from the high image quality of Model Based Iterative Reconstruction (MBIR) to reconstruct CT images with improved high contrast spatial resolution.Back To Top
