Vantage Titan MR System

PinnacleHealth now has the latest in MR technology by installing the new Vantage Titan from Toshiba.

“The Toshiba Vantage Titan is a dramatic improvement over traditional open-bore 1.5T MR systems, as it offers the largest and widest bore available with a significant reduction in noise,” said Karen Botts, Director of Radiology at PinnacleHealth. “The Vantage Titan’s large clinical FOV is unique for this bore size and produces high-quality images without compromising homogeneity or overall imaging performance. In addition, the Vantage Titan’s bore size offers more space for patients inside the machine and limits MR acoustic noise using Toshiba’s patented Pianissimo technology, which creates a better imaging experience for all patients, especially those with claustrophobia.”

The Vantage Titan’s patient-focused features significantly improve patient comfort and increase the range of patients who can be imaged with MR. The open bore provides a greater feeling of openness for the patient, and Toshiba’s patented Pianissimo technology dramatically reduces acoustic noise, the most significant cause of patient discomfort during an MR exam.

The Vantage Titan MR system also takes advantage of Toshiba’s proprietary, contrast-free MRA techniques – Fresh Blood Imaging (FBI), Contrast-free Improved Angiography (CIA), Time-Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse (Time-SLIP) and Time and Space Angiography (TSA). Contrast-free imaging is particularly important because gadolinium, the most common contrast agent used for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) exams, has been directly linked to a sometimes fatal disease that occurs in patients with renal insufficiency, called Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) or Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy (NFD).
