With the launch of the Alphenix family, Canon Medical is also unveiling its exclusive new Alphenix Hi-Def Detector (High-Definition Flat Panel Detector), which is available on the all-new Alphenix Biplane and Alphenix Core + systems. Made up of the world’s first high-definition detector – with 76 micron resolution – for resolving fine details, the unique hybrid 12″ x 12″ panel is combined with high-definition flat panel technology that results in resolutions of 2.6 lp/mm (Standard) and 6.6 lp/mm (Hi-Def Detector). The Alphenix Hi-Def Detector technology helps clinicians see finer details during complex interventional procedures such as stent positioning and stent apposition, wire and catheter navigation through the stent struts, and observation of coil deployment.

In addition to the new Alphenix Hi-Def Detector, the Alphenix family includes the following new features:

Next generation Illuvis technology to reduce image noise with less lag time, and provide clearer images at steep angles while delivering a decreased frame rate that can help reduce dose Real-Time Auto-Pixel Shift to automatically correct misalignment between the contrast image and mask image during digital subtraction angiography and 2D roadmapping utilization (Optional) Tablet touch screen to optimize tableside workflow with simplified control functions and the option to assign “favorites” to customize the interface, per physician

“Canon Medical is redefining what is possible in intervention with the launch of the Alphenix family,” said Casey Waldo, director, Vascular Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “With the highest level of resolution available in the angiography market, our customers now have the ability to perform minimally invasive procedures with clear images to see fine details, enabling them to prioritize clinical decisions and patient outcomes.”

Canon Medical is showcasing the new Alphenix and Alphenix Hi-Def Detector technology, available with the Alphenix Biplane and Alphenix Core + systems, at this year’s Radiological Society of North America ( RSNA ) annual meeting in Chicago, IL from November 25-30, 2018 (Booth #1938, South Level 3).
