TUSTIN, Calif., April 5, 2019 – Building on its robust suite of ultrasound offerings, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. today introduces the Aplio a-series, a new line of ultrasound systems delivering high performance for multiple clinical uses at an affordable price point. Designed with the imaging, ergonomics and workflow capabilities of Canon Medical’s premium ultrasound systems in mind, the Aplio a-series, which includes the a550 and a450, can cover a broad range of clinical areas, from cardiology to women’s health for routine day-to-day excellence. Features of the a-series product line include:

  • High-end image quality that seamlessly integrates into workflow for a wide range of everyday imaging needs, including high-resolution 2D imaging and volumetric ultrasound.
  • Support for sonographers’ health with intuitive controls for easy operation and stress-free ergonomics for various patient exams with help from Canon Medical’s Healthy Sonographer™ Program – a CME accredited training and web support offering.
  • Wide range of qualitative and quantitative tools thanks to iSense technology which enables easy operation and more objective, reproducible results. Advanced applications like iSMI and Differential Tissue Harmonics, available on the Aplio a550, provide clinicians with the ability to meet a range of clinical needs.

“Health care providers have been lacking access to an ultrasound solution that delivers premium features at an affordable price point,” said Dan Skyba, managing director, Ultrasound Business Unit, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. “The Aplio a-series was designed to meet this growing need in the marketplace by delivering health care providers a wide range of applications for everyday use at an attainable price. It’s the best of both worlds – an economical solution with premium features.”

The Aplio a-series is part of Canon Medical’s suite of Collaborative Imaging tools which puts integrated imaging intelligence at the center of a patient’s journey. The initiative fuses multiple diagnostic imaging modalities with leading clinical applications to deliver holistic, optimized patient information to clinicians at the point of care.
