Toshiba Receives FDA Clearance for Industry’s First 16-Element MR Flex Coils

Flexible coil system expands exam capabilities, improves efficiency and diagnostic confidence

 

August 13, 2012

Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.'s high-density 16-element flexible coil system was developed in partnership with NeoCoil. The new coil system makes it easier for clinicians to complete high-quality exams and improve diagnostic quality.

Available for the Vantage Titan 1.5T, the 16-element flexible coils conform more closely to the anatomy, improving signal-to-noise ratio. The coils are available in medium and large sizes, and are ideally suited for general orthopedic and body imaging of large and small patients alike. Where standard coils are not optimal, the flexible coils can be used for general purpose as well as head, neck and spine imaging. Large patients are not forced into or pinched by the hard plastic of traditional rigid coils, and image quality for small patients is not compromised due to fixed, oversized coil housings.

The system received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance in August 2012.
