Manchester United puts Canon imaging solutions into team health center

by Thomas Dworetzky , Contributing Reporter
Sports doctors tasked with keeping Manchester United's footballers in top form have teamed up with Canon for critical injury diagnosis and treatment.

“Canon’s equipment,” said club doctor Steve McNally, “has really taken us to another level, with advanced imaging that allows us to detect things that we might not have noticed before.” Calling the image quality “exciting,” he said “it improved my diagnostic confidence in what we can do for our players.”

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.

The multi-year deal has the club's Aon medical center housing an Aquilion ONE ViSION Edition CT scanner, a Vantage Titan 3T MR scanner, an Aplio 500 ultrasound scanner, and a Viamo portable ultrasound system.

Access to such cutting-edge equipment helps the athletes keep their edge, too. “It’s fantastic to have such state-of-the-art equipment at the training ground, noted team assistant manager Ryan Giggs, who thinks the club could be the first in the U.K. with such an advanced setup.

McNally likened the ultrasound scanner, to “an extra pair of eyes,” saying that it “gives me information that I didn’t get from standard clinical assessment alone. Our scanning with the MR system provides even greater detail. We get high-resolution images throughout any section of the body in three different planes. The CT scanner, meanwhile, is invaluable in work like monitoring fracture healing and assessing bony and soft tissue problems.”

The partnership has led to a unique environment, NcNally added, “where we can apply our thoughts creatively, see the results quickly, and put them to good use for the team and for the wider healthcare community.”

Canon was in the news in mid-October, when it announced a partnership combining RaySearch’s RayStation and RayCare software with Canon's imaging systems, with a goal of enhancing radiotherapy imaging and planning.

The collaboration's products will hit U.S. markets first, and focus on generating a more efficient workflow with visualization solutions that combine radiotherapy imaging and planning tools to help clinicians find the best cancer treatments based on a number of factors, including the size and location of the tumor, the direction of radiotherapy beams and appropriate isocenter locations.

The collaboration exemplified Canon's “Made for Life” philosophy, said Toshio Takiguchi, president and CEO, Canon Medical, stressing that it would combine “best-in-class medical imaging technologies along with best-in-class oncology informatics to deliver better quality care at a lower cost.” It would also improve care by bringing the “benefits of high-definition imaging to the oncology continuum of care,” he added.

In June, Canon Medical showcased its new Ultra-High-Resolution research-enabled 3T MR System – with higher performance gradients that lead to better signal-to-noise spatial resolution for neurological applications, Professor Vincent Dousset of Bourdeaux University reported at the ISMRM-ESMRMB 2018 Joint Annual Meeting in Paris, France.

“That allows researchers to image deeper into brain anatomy like the hippocampus and brain micro structure,” Gavin Buffet, integrated marketing communications for Canon, told HCB News at the time.

According to Canon, this system has the highest peak gradient amplitude specification of 100 mT/m at 200 T/m/s. It can reach the maximum slew rate simultaneously to deliver high whole-body MR performance.

Manchester United puts Canon imaging solutions into team health

Thomas, Manchester United's home ground is 'Old Trafford' and not the Etihad Stadium. A quicke google search would have revealed that. The Etihad stadium is the home ground of Manchester City Football Club.
