Toshiba America Medical Systems (TAMS) has shipped its 100th Excelart Vantage, a high field 1.5T MRI system.

The Vantage system features many proprietary design features and technologies to facilitate patient-focused medical examinations, including Pianissimo technology to reduce scan noise by as much as 90 percent and SPEEDER parallel processing to support high-speed, high-quality imaging, TAMS said.

The Vantage features an ultra-short magnet at 140 cm with linear 30 mT/m (milliTesla per meter) gradient strength and a slew rate of 50 T/m/s (Tesla per meter per second) or 130 T/m/s.  MRI applications available include cardiac imaging, advanced echo planar imaging (EPI), perfusion and diffusion imaging, peripheral MR angiography (MRA), and SuperFASE (Fast Advanced Spin Echo) imaging.
