Toshiba to Showcase the Titan 3T MR System (WIP)

During the Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) 2009 annual meeting, Toshiba will showcase its Titan 3T MR System (works-in-progress). The Titan 3T blends Toshiba’s commitment to patients and customers with the power of additional diagnostic capabilities, making it the most comfortable, flexible and efficient 3T available.

The patient-friendly features of the Titan 3T greatly improve exam experiences. Toshiba’s exclusive Pianissimo™ sound-reduction technology reduces exam noise by up to 90 percent, making the Titan 3T the quietest 3T MR available today and solves one of the primary concerns facing the 3T market today. The Titan 3T boasts a 71 cm aperture – the widest available – giving larger patients more room and reducing claustrophobia. Additionally, The Titan 3T incorporates the ability to perform contrast-free MRA exams utilizing Toshiba’s proprietary non contrast sequences which are now in their fourth generation.

While the patient friendly features help improve efficiency, the Titan 3T also utilizes Toshiba’s Atlas coil technology. Because Atlas is an integrated coil design, patients do not need to be continually repositioned during multiple exams, saving time and increasing patient comfort.
