October 20, 2018: Under their new company name Canon Medical will be Diamond sponsor of the ISUOG World Congress and host a four-day program of educational activities, including insight sessions, satellite symposium and live scans. Key opinion leaders in maternal fetal medicine have been invited to share their experiences and demonstrate the clinical value of Canon’s imaging technologies.

Canon Medical’s portfolio of women’s healthcare solutions include the flagship Aplio i-series that now includes unique features such as Fetal Wall Motion Tracking: A raw-data based speckle tracking technology that helps clinicians assess fetal heart function in greater detail for earlier detection of fetal and maternal risk during pregnancy. A new ultra-wideband matrix transducer that delivers finer imaging detail will also be shown for the first time at ISUOG. In addition, Canon Medical plans to exhibit the recently launched Aplio a-series, which integrates technologies from the Aplio i-series, including a wide range of women’s healthcare applications designed to enhance diagnosis for the busy routine imaging department. Rounding out the suite of products being presented, the Xario g-series delivers a unique set of mobility and productivity features, including an impressive cable-free 8-hour battery performance and 2 second start up time, while continuing to offer Canon Medical’s proven imaging capabilities.
