Canon Medical’s New 3T MR Makes Quick Neuro Exams a Reality
Increased SNR on the Vantage Galan 3T Helps Shorten Exams and Improve Image Quality

Zoetermeer, February 27, 2017 – Opening new opportunities for 3T MRI in both routine and advanced imaging, Canon Medical launches its all-new Vantage GalanTM 3T MRI scanner. The system offers healthcare providers an everyday solution for high-quality 3T imaging that is fast and comfortable for patients.

The Vantage Galan 3T is a premium MR solution with a comprehensive range of clinical applications including neuro, musculoskeletal, abdominal, cardiovascular, breast and prostate. The Vantage Galan 3T is designed to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by up to 20 percent, allowing for faster sampling and higher resolution images thanks to its PURERF and Saturn technologies. This, combined with the ability to stack protocol sequences, results in quick neuro exams. Initial indications suggest the following neuro sequences can be performed in under five minutes: SAG T1, AX T2, AX T2 FLAIR, AX T2* and AX DWI/ADC.

Additionally, the system enhances diagnostic confidence with new advanced clinical applications and helps make exams easy to perform with EasyTech workflow solutions, which streamline positioning and scanning.

Prioritizing patient comfort, the system makes scanning even more quiet with Pianissimo™ Zen technology that reduces sound during acquisition by up to 99 percent. The Vantage Galan 3T expands access to bariatric and claustrophobic patients with its 71 cm patient aperture. The system’s immersive in-bore MR Theatre option further helps minimize patient anxiety and claustrophobia.

The system’s eco design reduces energy costs and makes the system easy to install, even in smaller spaces. “With its perfectly balanced hard­ware and software package, the Vantage Galan 3T is impres­sive. Its compact design and low space requirement were impor­tant factors for me in making the decision to purchase.” said Dr. Clemens Roznowicz from Marienhospital Brühl and Sana Hospital Hürth, Germany.

“The introduction of the Vantage Galan 3T represents a major breakthrough in the clinical applications of 3T imaging,” said Dirk Berneking, Senior Manager of the MR Business Unit at Canon Medical Systems Europe. “While 3T has often been limited to university settings, the capabilities of the Vantage Galan 3T open up a new world of possibilities for both advanced research use and routine clinical settings. The system dramatically simplifies complex exams and offers patients a quiet and comfortable experience, allowing healthcare providers to offer high quality MR imaging to their patients.”

Canon Medical is showcasing the new Vantage Galan 3T at this year’s ECR (Booth #16, Hall X2).
