Modern MRI scanners have a wide bore to accommodate obese patients and reduce claustrophobia. In order to enable a wide bore construction, it is common practice to completely redesign the magnet. However in most cases the most important specification, magnet homogeneity, is compromised. For the Vantage Titan, Toshiba kept the magnet of the Vantage version that has a 60 cm bore, but redesigned the gradient coil, maintaining the original magnet specifications. The result is a wide bore system without any compromise to image quality.
EASY TECH – FULLY AUTOMATED SCAN PLAN
Reproducibility of scan planes is often compromised through variation in scan plan by the technician operating the scanner. The EasyTech technology addresses this issue. Based on a standard axial scan the scanner looks for anatomical landmarks and based on these landmarks it adjusts the scan plan to the appropriate planes. This technology eliminates different orientations in follow-up scans and differences in orientation between patients.
M-POWER – WORKFLOW-ORIENTED SOFTWARE, OPTIMIZED FOR YOUR NEEDS
The M-Power software streamlines your workflow: As soon as a patient is registered in the RIS/HIS including the type of examination, the MRI scanner automatically selects the appropriate protocol that corresponds with the clinical request. In this protocol the scan parameters as well as the post-processing functions are defined.
NO WASTE OF TIME
In conventional MR systems, anatomy-specific coils could not coexist on the table. Consequently, frequent coil exchange made the process tedious and cumbersome to the operators. Therefore, procedure set-up and patient throughput was inefficient.
With the Atlas coil concept whereby the head, spine and body coils are seamlessly combined, boundary-free image acquisition can be performed while dramatically reducing coil exchange time. This results in an improved workflow.
