3T MR Enhances Patient Comfort, Exam Efficiency

A comfortable and efficient 3T MR, the Vantage Titan 3T open bore MR aims to eliminate the claustrophobia and acoustic noise that can distress patients and disrupt exam.

Its patient-centered technology improves the exam experience, resulting in better patient compliance and more streamlined exams to improve the delivery of care.

Benefits of the Vantage Titan 3T open bore MR include increased patient comfort and improved exam efficiency.

The system also incorporates the ability to perform contrast-free MRA exams, including Fresh Blood Imaging (FBI) for evaluating peripheral vascular diseases of the lower legs and extremities; Contrast-free Improved Angiography (CIA) for easier visualization of smaller vessels; Time-Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse (Time-SLIP) for evaluating hemodynamic, functional assessments and visualization of vascular structures; and Time and Space Angiography (TSA) to create non-contrast time-resolved imaging with high temporal resolution.

The Vantage Titan 3T also utilizes Toshiba’s Atlas integrated coil technology to reduce exam time and improve the overall exam experience for patients. Because the coils are integrated into the table, patients do not need to be continually repositioned for many exams, which saves time and improves patient comfort. Additionally, the Vantage Titan 3T will be equipped with the new user interface – M-Power – to further improve ease of use for technologists.

This product is not FDA 510(k) cleared.
