Canon Medical Systems Europe BV (The Netherlands) is presenting its latest innovations that align with the transformative theme of ECR 2024, alongside its mobile imaging solutions tailor-made to meet a hospital's needs during challenging times.

At ECR 2024, Canon is welcoming attendees to explore the advanced features and capabilities of its brand new CT City Hopper and to learn how it's shaping the future of medical imaging. The CT City Hopper is a mobile CT unit equipped with a 160-slice Aquilion Prime SP and capable of covering all clinical needs, like Cardiovascular and Neuro applications. For post-processing, the City Hopper comes with Vitrea® Advanced Visualization on board. Vitrea® Advanced Visualization is a modular viewing platform that provides a broad range of functions with the option of adding more functionality when needed. The City Hopper is designed with user and patient experience in mind. With expandable sides, a patient staircase, and an elevator for easy access, this mobile CT unit can be placed close to any clinic or hospital. This solution can even be used to commute between different hospital locations, as the CT City Hopper only needs an hour to be set up after arriving at the location.
