CHICAGO, Nov. 28, 2016 – Presenting significant improvements to cardiac MR imaging, Toshiba Medical’s Vantage Titan™ 1.5T / cS Edition with M-Power™ V3.6 software has received FDA clearance. The new system retains all the patient-friendly features of the Vantage Titan 1.5T MR with added technology to simplify complex cardiac exams.

The Vantage Titan / cS Edition offers cardiologists and radiologists a comprehensive suite of innovative applications to help them improve their workflow and patient comfort:

  • SUREVOITM with CardioLine+ (Option): The system offers SUREVOI Cardiac anatomy recognition technology to automatically determine the position of the heart. The enhanced CardioLine application CardioLine+ works with SUREVOI to automatically detect anatomical landmarks for accurate and reproducible positioning to complete alignment of 14 standard cardiac views with minimal operator interaction.
  • Multi b-Value Diffusion: The Vantage Titan / cS Edition allows acquisition of multiple b-values in a single scan enabling physicians to quickly identify tissue diffusivity.
  • Multi-echo T2 Mapping: The system also supports Multi-echo T2 Mapping, enabling physicians to visualize T2 map cartilage images to aid them in making a diagnosis and determining if treatment is needed.
  • VitreaTM Extend (Option): A state-of-the-art post-processing application, Vitrea

Extend permits clinicians to complete post-processing at a separate workstation while allowing the next patient exam to be conducted at the MR system. The Vitrea Extend solution comes with expert packages powered by the latest post-processing applications made by Olea Medical and Medis.

“The Vantage Titan / cS Edition gives healthcare providers the ability to diversify their MR imaging offerings and reduce their exam times, creating a new opportunity for routine cardiac MR,” said Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR Business Units, Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. “Toshiba Medical understands the patient experience and business needs of MR, and the Vantage Titan / cS Edition offers customers innovative MR imaging solutions that meet a variety of clinical needs, without compromising patient satisfaction.”
