Canon Medical Systems USA will distribute its Aquilion Large Bore CT and Celestion PET/CT solutions through RaySearch Laboratories’ U.S. sales force.

The agreement builds on a partnership between the two, focused on offering U.S. providers an integrated radiation oncology portfolio that creates more efficient workflows for finding optimal cancer treatment plans.

“In this new phase of our collaboration, we look forward to working with RaySearch so that more customers and patients can benefit from our combined solution,” said Yuji Hamada, president and CEO of Canon Medical Systems USA, in a statement.

The Aquilion Large Bore CT offers the largest bore opening at 90 cm; a 70 cm field-of-view; and an 85 cm extended field of view. It weighs 660 lbs, which enables it to scan larger patients, and utilizes Adaptive Iterative Dose Reduction 3D (AIDR 3D) technology to automatically reduce radiation dosage while maintaining spatial resolution and image texture.

Equipped with a 90 cm CT bore as well, the Celestion PET/CT is designed to support the simulation of radiation treatment planning. It can extend its field of view from 70 cm to 85 cm and uses Canon’s SEMAR technology to reduce metallic artifacts and improve visualization of implants and adjacent soft tissues for clearer and more confident diagnosis.

In 2018, Canon and RaySearch struck up a collaboration to offer Canon’s imaging systems with RayStation, RaySearch’s treatment planning solution. Together, the solutions provide clinicians with significant pieces of information needed to develop treatment plans, including the size and location of the tumor, the direction of radiotherapy beams and appropriate isocenter locations.

The partnership also included RaySearch’s oncology information manager RayCare, which handles image management and workflow for virtual simulation; and RayStation Simulation, which creates a virtual simulation that incorporates patient modeling, isocenter placement, beam design and the exporting of patient marking systems.
