Toshiba Introduces MR Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Suite

December 1, 2008 – Toshiba announced at RSNA 2008 its Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Suite available on the Vantage Atlas and Vantage Titan MR systems.

The new multi-channel Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Coil optimizes Magnetic Resonance Mammography (MRM) on the Vantage systems.

The bilateral, dedicated, multi-element Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Coil provides high temporal and spatial resolution for dynamic analysis and lesion characterization. The coil delivers a high signal-to-noise ratio, significantly increasing the breast image quality. The Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Coil is an addition to existing Vantage coils which are designed to improve workflow and patient comfort.

The Vantage Atlas and Titan’s reportedly features greatly improve the patient experience in a MR machine. The systems have the ability to perform breast exams feet first, reducing patient discomfort and claustrophobia. Additionally, the patented Pianissimo technology reduces acoustic noise by up to 90 percent, addressing the number one patient complaint with the quietest system available.
