Canon is partnering with the National Cancer Center Japan and EAST Hospital to conduct research on photon-counting CT
Canon Medical Systems has teamed up with the National Cancer Center Japan and EAST Hospital in Kashiwa to further research on the use of photon-counting CT (PCCT).

PCCT is an advanced diagnostic imaging technique designed to identify multiple material components by measuring X-ray photons at different energy levels. Doing so enables it to enhance image resolution and quality, while reducing dose exposure compared to conventional CT.

Canon and the center’s Exploratory Oncology Research & Clinical Trial Center (NCC-EPOC) will use the quantitative capabilities of photon counting CT to assess treatment effects from chemotherapeutic agents on malignant tumors. They will also analyze different tissue characteristics for clinical insights on a wide range of medical fields.
