Canon Aplio 500 Ultrasound scanner applications

‌3D/4D Imaging and Colour Flow in the Placenta

  • Surface rendered imaging
  • Volume measurement
  • Qualitative/quantitative assessment of vascularisation and blood flow to the placenta
  • Evaluation of fetoplacental insufficiency
  • Prediction of foetal growth retardation
  • Diagnosis/exclusion of placenta accrete

Superb Micro-Vascular Imaging (SMI)

  • Expands the range of visible blood flow
  • Provides visualisation of low velocity micro-vascular flow unseen with ultrasound
  • Provides high frame rates
  • Allows for a more confident diagnosis when evaluating lesions, cysts and tumours
  • Can be used in monochrome mode and in colour mode
Superb micro-vascular imaging in colour mode

Fly Thru

  • Allows the user to assimilate volume data sets to explore cavities, ducts and vessels from the inside and in 3D
  • Adds cross-sectional information to plain surface data
  • Helps to assist in the planning and follow-up of intervention procedures such as placing stents or grafts

The advantages of using Real-Time Image Fusion on the Canon Aplio 500 include:

  • The ability to combine high resolution MRI/CT with ultrasound
  • Continual assessment or patient follow-up at reduced cost or radiation exposure
  • Imaging with the best attributes from different modalities
  • The correlation of different imaging modalities with ultrasound in real time
  • It reads 3D DICOM data sets, displaying images next to live ultrasound display

Real-Time Image Fusion in the Neonatal Brain

The Canon Aplio 500 provides a high resolution anatomical image combined with a series of ultrasound images, ensuring continual neonatal assessment.
