Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. is showcasing its newest works-in-progress, the Excelart Vantage Plus powered by Atlas, a 1.5T large bore system. Both the Vantage Atlas system and the Vantage Atlas Plus are on display at this year’s Radiological Society of North America annual meeting in Chicago.
The Vantage Atlas Plus’ elliptical large bore design is intended to decrease incidents of claustrophobia, giving patients more room during MRI exams. The system also provides an expanded field-of-view at up to 55cm, allowing clinicians to capture high-quality images across the entire bore.
The new 128-element system delivers high-resolution images across the entire body with faster imaging times, rendering quick and accurate diagnosis, while focusing on patient comfort. The new Atlas system design is an integrated coil concept that will allow clinicians to perform multiple exams without repositioning the patient. Also, the optional 205-cm acquisition range allows for feet-first imaging for the entire body, except the neck and head.
