Upgrade Program Provides Pathway for Accessing Latest MR Technology
The reNew program, from Toshiba, gives Toshiba Vantage customers multiple upgrade options, including cost-effective paths to a Vantage Atlas or Vantage Titan without having to buy a new system.
Upgrading to Vantage Atlas
Customers upgrading from the Vantage to the Vantage Atlas can take advantage of the advanced integrated coil technology and an extended field of view of 55 x 55 x 50 centimeters. The integrated coil system, which eliminates the need to reposition patients during exams, helps streamline exams and improve workflow creating a faster and more comfortable exam.
Upgrading to Vantage Titan
The Vantage Titan’s large open bore and 71 cm opening creates a more comfortable exam, which can help reduce claustrophobia in some patients. Its large diameter can accommodate some bariatric patients. The system also includes powerful gradients to handle demanding imaging sequences and has outstanding homogeneity to provide high image quality.
The MR product line also includes numerous patient-friendly features, such as:
• Pianissimo technology reduces noise by up to 90 percent.
• Contrast-free MR angiography (MRA) techniques enable safer MRA imaging of patients with known renal compromise. Toshiba’s contrast-free MRA techniques include fresh blood imaging (FBI) for evaluating peripheral vascular diseases of the lower legs and extremities; contrast-free improved angiography (CIA) for easier visualization of smaller vessels; time-spatial labeling inversion pulse (time-SLIP) for evaluating hemodynamic, functional assessments, and visualization of vascular structures and time space angiography (TSA) to create noncontrast time-resolved imaging with high temporal resolution.
