December 18, 2013 — Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. introduced enhancements to its Vantage Titan magnetic resonance (MR) product line. The new technologies improve workflow, image quality and patient comfort.
 
The enhancements include:
  • Flexible coils: The high-density, 16-channel Flex Speeder coils conform closer to the patient’s anatomy, improving signal-to-noise ratio for enhanced image quality. The light-weight coils are available in medium and large sizes and are ideally suited for general orthopedic and body imaging.
  • 3T Head Speeder Coil: The 32-channel Head Speeder coil provides high image quality for high-end neuro applications in 3T imaging, such as functional MRI (fMRI) and Diffusion Tensor Imaging, with high signal-to-noise ratio and high spatial and temporal resolution.
  • Rapid Transport System (RTS): The light-weight and easy-to-maneuver RTS is designed for transporting patients to the MRI suite for scanning without the need for repositioning, improving workflow and throughput. The RTS docks over the MR system’s couch, so the patient stays on one table during the entire imaging process, ensuring patient safety.
