October 10, 2008 – The quietness and open design of the Toshiba Vantage Titan is dramatically improving the MR experience for patients at Health Scan Imaging in Temecula, CA, according to Toshiba.
The system boasts a 71 cm opening, reportedly the largest in the industry, and patented noise reduction technology.
Claustrophobic and obese patients are now able to be imaged with MR because the open bore provides a greater feeling of openness. Toshiba’s patented Pianissimo technology reduces acoustic noise, the most significant cause of patient discomfort during a MR exam. Finally, patients sensitive to contrast agents now have an option for a contrast-free MRA exam.
