Redesigned Cardiac MR Features 128 Elements, Faster Imaging Times


February 7, 2007

The completely redesigned EXCELART Vantage Atlas 1.5T MRI system from Toshiba features 128 elements that deliver high-resolution images across the entire body with faster imaging times.

Patient comfort is enhanced with the system’s new integrated coil concept that allows clinicians to perform multiple exams without repositioning the patient. The system’s optional 205-cm acquisition range allows for feet-first imaging for the entire body, except the neck and head.

The system offers a wide range of optional packages for cardiac imaging, including advanced echo planar imaging, diffusion and perfusion imaging, peripheral angiography and fresh blood imaging, SuperFASE (Fast Advanced Spin Echo) imaging and body vision.
