Canon to demonstrate new and latest medical imaging technologies at ECR 2016

LONDON, 2 March 2016 – Canon Europe, leader in imaging solutions, will be showcasing its latest Healthcare IT and Digital Radiography (DR) solutions at Europe’s largest radiology event, the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) in Vienna (3-6 March 2016).

All of the solutions on show at ECR will empower healthcare professionals to perform at their best and improve workflow efficiency, while ensuring compliance. Furthermore, Canon’s innovative imaging technologies enable practitioners to push the limits of radiology, with fast throughput, lower doses, and a true focus on patient-centric care.

On the Canon stand, visitors can test-drive several of the DelftDI radiography solutions and applications. Thanks to new software features, such as Scatter Correction, Tomosynthesis and OneShot Long Length, Canon’s radiography solutions enable medical professionals to work more efficiently and in a patient-friendly manner.

In addition to the broad range of solutions on show at ECR, Canon experts will be available on the stand to explain how Canon’s Healthcare IT suite has been developed specifically to improve efficiency in hospitals by enabling the sharing of health records, reducing time and costs and ultimately improving care for patients. As part of this, Canon will be showcasing its new full workflow solution for zero-footprint viewers, which can now also be used to view radiotherapy images and non-DICOM images.

On stand, Canon will also be demonstrating the applications of ZillionIQS – a database of radiography images that would have previously been rejected as unsuitable for medical analysis. Developed in conjunction with the Dutch Society Medical Imaging and Radiotherapy, the ZillionIQS enables medical professionals to learn from these images to help improve quality standards and compliance. Canon’s ZillionInsight will also be on show, which is a dashboard to dynamically collect statistical information of radiography patient care, from waiting time to length of examination and staff that patients have been seen by. This solution is for easy interpretation of these statistics to facilitate departmental efficiency improvements.

Peter Blonk, Head of Medical Imaging Group, Canon Europe, comments, “Our focus at Canon is on developing pioneering technologies that will change the face of radiography and healthcare communication. With these solutions, we aim to enhance people’s lives through more accurate diagnosis and better communication with medical professionals. Our solutions are built with the purpose of empowering the healthcare professionals to focus on what really matters – their patients – by eliminating the excessive burden of administration or inefficiencies in the workflow. We’re gaining fantastic momentum in this space, and this spring it is estimated that we’ll reach a significant milestone of the shipment of 33,000 Digital Radiography units globally, and so we’re delighted to have a presence at ECR to discuss this momentum and engage with experts in this field.”
