Contrast in your images. Not in your patients.

Non-Contrast Imaging

In 1998, Canon Medical Systems pioneered non-contrast MR imaging. Now, with over 10 years of clinical experience, Canon Medical Systems' Vantage™ systems are the only systems available with a complete suite of contrast-free MRA techniques.

Visualization of blood flow in one acquisition.

Fresh Blood Imaging

  • 3D FASE, ECG gated sequence, designed to improve the natural visualization of blood vessels
  • FBI distinguishes arteries from veins by utilizing the loss of arterial signal in systole due to fast flow compared to diastole

Fresh Blood Imaging

Flow-Spoiled FBI

FS-FBI utilizes a small dephasing gradient to vastly improve flow depiction in the lower extremities or patients with poor circulation.

Improve patient satisfaction with safe and accurate vascular imaging.

Time-Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse (Time-SLIP)

Time-SLIP is an Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) variant that is typically used to depict blood vessels within a targeted region in any imaging orientation.

Time-SLIP has been evaluated for use in the renal arteries, carotid arteries, pulmonary system and portal-venous system. It produces accurate angiograms using blood as an endogenous tracer, instead of a contrast agent.

Time-SLIP

Visualization of vascular circulation.

Time-SLIP Complex Circulation

ASL combined with 3D SSFP or FASE to tag moving blood. Used to image complex circulation or multidirectional flow.

Hepatic veins

Carotid

Pulmonary

Renal arteries

Improve patient safety with perfusion-weighted images generated without contrast medium.

3D ASL Perfusion

  • ASL can be performed on patients with suspected or known cerebrovascular disease, tumor and seizures or for mapping of blood flow during functional activation studies
  • CBF ASLR semi-quantification method is based on Buxton Model

Improve patient safety with perfusion-weighted images generated without contrast medium.

3D ASL MRA

  • Allows for completely non-invasive visualization of hemodynamic flow in the Circle of Willis and carotids
  • As the leader in Non-Contrast Imaging technology, 3D Arterial Spin Labeling MR angiography is unique to Canon Medical Systems
  • When combined with 3D ASL, it can validate cerebral blood flow patterns
