The Toshiba Vantage Titan is a new generation of MRI scanner.


Our Toshiba Vantage Titan has a 1.5T magnet and Helios Gradient delivering the highest quality images which provide a high level of diagnostic confidence.

 

Many patients are apprehensive about undergoing MRI examinations.  The Vantage Titan™ has resolved this issue by incorporating an open-bore design, minimizing feelings of claustrophobia, while still achieving unparalleled results.  The system also provides an environment in which larger patients can be examined in comfort.

Its 32-inch bore coupled with its short design allows a patient to have 12 inches of free space above their head, and 60% of examinations are conducted with the head outside the scanner.

Noise generated during an MRI is one of the main causes of patient discomfort.  Toshiba has tackled this problem with it's proprietary technology, Pianissimo™.  With Pianissimo™, the gradient field coil is sealed in a vacuum, significantly reducing noise by removing air as a source of transmission.  A resonance suppression mechanism minimises vibration of the gantry.  A noise-reduction sequence further enhances the quieter experience.

Conventional MRIs operate at 110 db, well above the 85 - 90 db at which hearing is damaged, but the Vantage Titan runs at 65 db – 75db, providing a major improvement in patient comfort.
