MR Systems Help Analyze Valve, Heart Function, Perfusion


February 10, 2010

Toshiba America Medical Systems Vantage Titan and Vantage Atlas MR systems can help analyzing cardiac valve structure and heart function, as it shows both anatomy and function, such as myocardial movement and blood flow.

The Vantage Titan features a cardiac coil comprised of multisized elements to capture discreet MR signals from cardiac anatomy. It includes a synergistic element design to capture high precision images of the midline anatomy, such as the heart, as well as the peripheral tissues. This design enables physicians to select the appropriate coil elements to maximize image quality of the anatomy being imaged.

Both Toshiba’s Titan and Atlas MR systems offer contrast-free imaging to safely image patients with known renal compromise, such as with diabetic patients.
