Vantage Titan 1.5T Zen Edition MRI Scanner Benefits

Pianissimo

Reducing noise at the source, is the source of our patients' comfort.

MR acoustic noise is one of the major complaints of patients and medical staff. Canon Medical Systems' patented Pianissimo™ technology significantly reduces the noise in and around the MRI environment, making exams more comfortable and easier to complete. With Pianissimo, MRI no longer needs to be loud and disruptive.

Pianissimo Overview

Pianissimo Technology

Hardware vs. software

Quiet MR for every sequence, scan and patient. Canon Medical Systems hardware is designed to eliminate noise at the source.

  • Noise reduction is achieved on all sequences
  • Additional special sequences further reduce gradient noise
Quiet MRI Decreasted Noise and Performance

Competitors reduce noise by use of software only.

  • Limited to specialized pulse sequences
  • Software solutions modify the pulse sequences themselves which intentionally diminish the gradient performance

Vantage Titan 1.5T reduces acoustic noise in two ways:

Vacuum Chamber

The gradient coil is vacuum sealed, which significantly reduces acoustic noise.

Silent Pulse Sequences

Vantage Titan 1.5T also offers special sequences that further reduce gradient noise. These allow even the most sensitive patients to have a pleasant exam experience.

Unique acoustic noise reduction suites.

MR Theater

MR Theater*

In-bore visuals enhance patient comfort, thereby helping to put your patients at ease.

Patients undergoing MR exams will find a relaxing environment with Canon Medical Systems' new MR Theater. Creating an immersive virtual experience for patients, the new MR Theater gives patients a visual focal point to distract them from the exam, encouraging them to relax and stay still, enabling clinicians to produce efficient, high-quality imaging.

Contrast in your images. Not in your patients.

Non-Contrast Imaging

An increasing awareness of the potential risks associated with gadolinium-based contrast agents has revealed the need for alternative, contrast-free MRA techniques. We provide clinicians four generations of unique, non-contrast MRA sequences that minimize risk to patients while producing exceptional images. These images are often better than those acquired with conventional contrast enhanced techniques.
