Toshiba Showcases Vantage Galan 3T MRI at ISMRM 2017

April 24, 2017 — Offering a full range of advanced clinical applications for researchers, Toshiba Medical will demonstrate the Vantage Galan 3T, at the 2017 International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting, April 22-27 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

With advanced applications that include neuro, musculoskeletal (MSK), abdominal, cardiovascular, breast and prostate, the Vantage Galan 3T is designed to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by up to 20 percent, allowing for faster sampling and higher resolution images thanks to PURERF and Saturn technologies. This combined with the ability to stack protocol sequences results in quick neuro exams. The system enhances diagnostic confidence with new advanced clinical applications and helps make exams easy to perform with EasyTech workflow solutions, which streamline positioning and scanning. Additionally, the system offers non-contrast magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) sequences and makes scanning even more quiet with Pianissimo Zen technology that reduces sound during acquisition by 99 percent.

Toshiba Medical will also sponsor a Lunch Symposium with lectures on diffusion MRI and advanced MSK techniques at 3T.
