Canon Medical’s unique take on its virtual booth will feature a variety of one-of-a-kind digital experiences for customers, including:

  • Augmented reality: visitors can experience the Cartesion Prime’s small footprint by using augmented reality to place the system in any real-life environment they choose.

Launched in late 2019, the Cartesion Prime Digital PET/CT system is comprised of Canon Medical’s premium SiPM PET detector and the AquilionTM Prime SP CT system for optimal PET/CT imaging and workflow with a patient and operator-centric design, along with innovative features to help clinicians guide their business with confidence. The Celesteion PUREViSION Edition PET/CT system allows for ease and efficiency in PET/CT, CT simulation and diagnostic CT exams, to help diagnose and treat oncology patients. The system’s patient-centered design can help deliver a safe and comfortable experience, facilitating better patient compliance.
