Toshiba unveils 32 element coils
The works in progress, available on the Vantage Titan 1.5T MR and the 510k-pending Vantage Titan 3T MR, are designed to improve image quality and speed, stated Tustin, Calif.-based Toshiba.
The 32 element coils provide spatial and temporal resolution for advanced cardiac and neuro imaging, the company said. The 32 element cardiac coil allows higher signal-to-noise ratio and improves image quality.
The cardiac and head coils build upon the Vantage Atlas system, which integrates the coils into the table and enables feet-first imaging for many exams, Toshiba added.
