Toshiba won FDA clearance for its Vantage Titan 1.5T MRI that comes in either 8, 16, or 32-channel configuration. Hospitals wanting to start moderately, yet keep the option open to upgrade, can move from 8 channels up to 16 and 32 as the complexity of clinical procedures, and so the need for higher resolution imaging, increases.
The unit features a 71 cm bore, a short 1.4 m magnet, and one of the quietest MRI experiences of any scanner on the market.
From the announcement:
The Titan 8-channel is an ideal workhorse MR system for the majority of clinical applications, offering industry-recognized, patient-friendly features, including a 71 cm bore, Toshiba’s exclusive Pianissimo™ noise-reduction technology, advanced non-contrast imaging, integrated coils with Octave SPEEDER™ technology and an intuitive M-Power user interface, at a price point unmatched in the industry.
For customers who require enhanced cardiac imaging, the Titan line is easily upgradeable to a 16- or 32-channel system, which will enable higher spatial and temporal resolution for better images of moving anatomy.
