After taking a virtual approach to RSNA last year, Canon Medical Systems made its presence felt at RSNA 2022, unveiling an interactive “digital patient journey” booth that featured an interesting mix of new products and business model innovations.
SP MRIs – Canon unveiled SP-suffix configurations of its Vantage Orian and Galan MRIs (1.5T & 3T), adding new features intended to enhance MRI team efficiency (tablet UX interface, intelligent Ceiling Camera), while making a number of its image quality and productivity-focused solutions standard (AiCE DLR, Fast 3D acceleration, ForeSee View automation).
Mobile XR – The new Mobirex i9 brings a rare update to Canon’s U.S. mobile X-ray lineup, launching with an emphasis on its small size, mobile/flexible design, and its use of Canon’s next-gen CXDI-Elite wireless detectors.
Mobile MI – In a different type of mobile expansion, Canon launched a mobile version of its Cartesion Prime Digital PET/CT, which seems to be a good fit for mobile coaches given its Air Cooled technology and small footprint (fits in 3.15×7.1 meters).
Future Proof Packages – Canon rolled out its interesting new Non-Obsolescence Program, which allows CT and MRI customers to purchase an up-front package that gives them access to all future hardware, software, and service options as they become available. The program covers five years of upgrades, and is priced well below what users would pay if they ordered each item individually.
Glassbeam Clinsights – Canon’s Inclusive Analytics Suite added Glassbeam Clinsights Utilization Analytics, which analyzes DICOM and HL7 data to help Canon service customers understand imaging utilization and productivity levels across their fleets (multi-modalities and vendors).
