Toshiba 3T Vantage approved by FDA

Anyone using Toshiba magnets please comment about your experience. Good or bad. Thank you! I think this new magnet will be a nice one!!

Vantage Titan 3T

Titan 3T sets new standards in Comfort, Imaging and Productivity
Experience 3T like never before!
With Toshiba’s Titan series, you provide unsurpassed comfort to your patient, combining a short 1.6 meter magnet with a large 71 cm opening, reducing patient anxiety and allowing 80% of the body to be scanned feet first.

The widest…
What do 71 cm bring in practice?
More comfort for your patients
Helps against claustrophobia
More space to fit patients of all sizes
Reduce stress and anxienty
Easy check-on and access-to your patient
Ideal for pediatrics and geriatrics
Ideal for breast imaging
The quietest…
Acoustic noise is an important source of problems on conventional MR systems. It makes communication with the patient difficult and causes the patient discomfort. It can induce transient or permanent hearing disturbance and also poses a hazard for pediatric patients who need sedation.

Toshiba’s unique PianissimoTM technology has been further improved
and applied to provide the quietest 3T system available.

Magnetic Field Homogeneity: B0
While conventional MR systems offer a spherical homogeneous are centered at the iso-center of the scanner, a cylinder corresponds better to the form of the human body. With conform technology, Titan 3T offers a 50 x 50 x 45 cm cylindrical homogeneous Field Of View.

RF Field Homogeneity: B1
Titan 3T uses optimized amplitude and phase transmission called “Multi Phase Transmit”. It has the functionality of a Multi-channel Transmit Array, using multiple ports and multiple phases for optimal B1 homogeneity. It removes shading artifacts, improves SAR and reduces scan times by up to 40%.

Exceptional Contrast Resolution
With Conform and Multi-Phase Transmit technologies, abdominal and pelvic imaging are no challenge on Titan 3T. No more shading on your T2-weighted (fast) spin echo images. No more uneven fat suppression on your images. You can use SSFP from head to toe!

Atlas matrix coil system
In conventional MR systems, the organ specific coils require frequent coil exchange. The heavy weight of most coils makes the task tedious for the operators and the time devoted to this operation is wasted. With Atlas, coil exchange is dramaitically recuced and the few times it is required, the light weight of the coils makes it a fast and easy operation. This way, the workflow is significantly increased.

  1. I am about two and a half weeks into working with the Titan. I am trying very hard to stay positive about it. While it has some nice things about it, I still don’t think it produces images like a GE. I have way more control over parameters than I ever wanted. I feel like I am taking my registry over and over. Not the most user friendly. But on the flip side it will make me a better Tech and reinforce what I have learned over the years.
    Well I’ll keep my fingers crossed. Got run…. my ulcer is acting up…..lol
