Toshiba Showcases MRI Workflow Enhancements at RSNA 2017

September 21, 2017 — Toshiba Medical will highlight its latest magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, led by the Vantage Titan/Zen Edition and Vantage Galan 3T, at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.

The Zen Edition highlights intelligent workflow and patient comfort, providing a complete clinical offering to help clinicians make accurate diagnoses. The system features patient comfort tools, including Pianissimo Zen, which makes scanning even more quiet by reducing sound during acquisition by 99 percent when mUTE or mUTE 4D-MRA sequences are used. Toshiba Medical’s newest clinical applications, including T1 mapping utilizing Modified Look Locker Inversion-Recovery (MOLLI) sequence, allow providers to acquire a more quantitative characterization of myocardial tissue within a single breath hold. To enhance cardiac workflow, the system features multi-echo T2 Mapping with Toshiba Medical’s updated FFE2D mEcho sequence, which is used in quantification and analysis of myocardial iron overload.
