Toshiba's New MR Series Offers Technology Investment for the Future
CHICAGO --(Business Wire)--
RSNA Booth #3438, South Hall - Providing hospitals with MR technology
that fulfills their financial needs and grows with their clinical needs,
Toshiba (News - Alert) America Medical Systems, Inc. will showcase the scalable Vantage
Titan™ 1.5T MR series, which includes 8-, 16- and 32-channel MR systems,
at this year's Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual
meeting in Chicago, Nov. 25 - 30, 2012 (Booth #3438, South Hall).
Vantage Titan 8-channel is an ideal MR for the majority of clinical
applications, offering patient-friendly features including a 71 cm bore,
Toshiba's exclusive Pianissimo™ noise-reduction technology, advanced
non-contrast imaging, integrated coils with Octave SPEEDER™ technology
and an intuitive M-Power user interface.
For customers who require enhanced cardiac imaging, the Vantage Titan
line is easily upgradeable to a 32-channel system, enabling higher
spatial and temporal resolution for better images of moving anatomy. The
line is also enhanced with a modern, sleek exterior, including new
covers and soft, patient-soothing lighting around the bore.
To improve orthopedic and body image quality, the entire series is
available with 16 channel Flex SPEEDER coils that conform more closely
to the anatomy, greatly improving signal-to-noise ratio. The coils are
available in two different sizes and can be used for orthopedic,
abdominal and general-purpose imaging of adults, and head, neck and
spine imaging of pediatrics. For pediatrics, whee standard coils are
not optimal, the flexible coils can conform to nearly any body part and
provide excellent image quality.
"With the Vantage Titan series, hospitals can invest in an 8-channel MR
system today, with the option to upgrade if their clinical needs change
in the future," said Stuart Clarkson, director, MR Business Unit,
Toshiba. "The patient-friendly features make exams more comfortable for
patients, enabling hospitals to increase throughput and reduce retakes."
