Toshiba hits 300 install mark with Vantage MRI

Toshiba Medical Systems Corp. (TMSC) this week announced that it has installed its 300th Excelart Vantage MRI system. The 1.5T, high-field MRI system was installed at the Center for Advanced Imaging in Roanoke, Va., and will be used to conduct a wide range of advanced diagnostic imaging applications to aid in the early diagnosis of life-threatening diseases.

The Toshiba Pianissimo technology is the core of the system and reduces acoustic noise by almost 90 percent. In addition, Toshiba’s SPEEDER parallel imaging technology allows clinicians to perform exams in a single breath hold, reducing motion artifacts and increasing image quality, the company said.
