Toshiba Receives FDA Clearance for New 8- and 32-Channel Titan 1.5T MR Systems
Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc.'s Vantage Titan 1.5T series features the 8-, 16- and 32-channel MR (magnetic resonance) systems. The series offers a scalable solution with a full upgrade path from the 8-channel to the 32-channel system. In addition to these upgrades, the entire Titan 1.5T MR line is enhanced with a new modern, sleek exterior, including new covers and soft, patient-soothing lighting around the bore.
The Titan 8-channel is an ideal workhorse MR system for the majority of clinical applications, offering industry-recognized, patient-friendly features, including a 71-cm bore, Toshiba’s Pianissimo noise-reduction technology, advanced non-contrast imaging, integrated coils with Octave Speeder technology and an intuitive M-Power user interface.
For customers who require enhanced cardiac imaging, the Titan line is easily upgradeable to a 16- or 32-channel system, which will enable higher spatial and temporal resolution for better images of moving anatomy.
The series received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance in August 2012.
