RSNA: Toshiba highlights MR technology

Toshiba America Medical Systems (Booth #3438) is showcasing its Vantage Titan 1.5T MR series and MR tools as works in progress at RSNA 2012, in Chicago, Nov. 25-30.

The Vantage Titan 1.5T series includes the 8-, 16- and 32-channel MR systems and offers an upgrade path from the 8-channel to the 32-channel system.

Toshiba is sharing M-Power User Interface Upgrade, which automates certain steps with routine MR exams, and Pediatric Scan Apparatus, which positions the 16-element coils for pediatric head, neck and spine imaging. Both enhancements are works-in-progress.

The company also is introducing Spot Fluoro, a dose management tool for Infinix-i vascular X-ray systems. Spot Fluoro allows clinicians to view a region of anatomy using live fluoroscopy while viewing the Last Image Hold surrounding area.
