ZOETERMEER, The Netherlands -
- Vantage Elan™
Toshiba Medical Systems Corporation is proud to display its revolutionary 1.5T MRI system for the first time at the Journees Francaises de la Radiologie (French Radiology Congress) which is held in the city of Paris from October the 18th to the 22nd. With more than 1,700 systems already installed worldwide, the Vantage™ family of MRIs provided a strong technological basis for the new design of the Vantage Elan.
Everyone expects that there should be no compromise in image quality when using a diagnostic tool with their patients, and now you do not have to make a choice as TOSHIBA has pioneered a new segment with the Next Generation 1.5 T system. With Vantage Elan's superior intrinsic homogeneity, achieved by employing a new magnet technology, you no longer have to sacrifice quality in your images. Toshiba's Vantage Elan provides excellent image quality even in the most difficult examination requirements such as off center imaging or in a large field of view requiring fat free images.
Patient care is always Toshiba's number one concern whenever we design a new system. We have improved the comfort of the examination by introducing a new technology called Pianissimo™ SUMMATION that significantly reduces the noise for the patient and the operator. Our new light coil design with Octave SPEEDER™ technology provides easier set up and a more comfortable experience for the patient without sacrificing image quality. Our unique Feet First examination technique also helps to reduce patient anxiety. Finally, our new bore aperture, short length magnet and air flow system, provides your patient with a comfortable place to have their examination with less stress.
All of Toshiba's world renowned true non-contrast applications, which are available on our other Vantage series products, are also in the Vantage Elan making it possible to perform a full body Non Contrast MRA. Toshiba pioneered the technique to remove the need to use expensive and potentially dangerous contrast media while still providing "contrast" in the images. We have saved our users from choosing to inject contrast media in their patients while giving them even better information without the problems that contrast can cause in obscuring fine details.
