The Canon Aplio 400 is a high-end system that is based on the same platform as the Aplio 500, the top model in Canon’s flagship Aplio Platinum series before the Aplio I series launched in 2016. The Canon Aplio 400 is designed to support a full range of applications and can be used as a general-purpose system or a specialized system, depending on the installed software. The Canon Aplio 400 Platinum with Canon’s well-known extensive selection of transducers supports a wide range of clinical applications including fetal, abdominal, intra-operative (abdominal), pediatric, small organs, trans-vaginal, trans-rectal, neonatal cephalic, adult cephalic, cardiac (both adult and pediatric), peripheral vascular, transesophageal, and musculo-skeletal (both conventional and superficial).
The Canon Aplio 400 Platinum has removed three of the upgradable options, Smart 3D, Speckle Reduction and Tissue Specific Optimization, from the Canon Aplio 500 Platinum. The standard package of the Canon Aplio 400 are as follows: 19-inch LCD monitor, DVD/CD drive, Precision imaging, Tissue Enhancement, Differential-THI, ApliPure+, Trapezoid Scan, Quick Scan, TDI, QSP, HPRF, Advanced Dynamic FlowTM(ADF), and DICOM Media Storage.
The Canon Aplio Platinum series was the top line products series before Canon launched the new Aplio i series in 2016. The Canon Aplio Platinum series share the same system architecture; therefore, all options could be used on the Aplio 300, 400, and 500. The user selectable key options are as follows: 4D for motor driven volume transducers and TEE transducer, Battery Kit, Smart Fusion, Smart Navigation Sensor, Smart Navigation, Wireless LAN, Stress Echo, 2D Wall Motion Tracking, CHI(Contrast Harmonic Imaging), CHI-Q, Parametric MFI, 4D STIC, Luminance, Fly Thru, Protocol Assistant, Super Micro Vascular Imaging (SMI), MicroPure, Elastography-FLR, Elastography, Shear Wave, Panoramic View, Vascular Index, Auto NT, and 1.5D Transducer support kit.
Apart from all the selectable options, the Canon Aplio Platinum series supports a total of 47 transducers including sector, convex, 4D volume, linear, micro convex, TEE, and Pencil transducers. Among those 47 transducers, the Canon Aplio Platinum series supports about 10 different intra-operative and biopsy enhancement transducers that improve clinical productivity in interventional Radiology.
