Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc has installed the 700th Vantage MR system at Comanche County Medical Center (CCMC) in rural Comanche, Tex.

CCMC, which acquired Toshiba’s Vantage Atlas MR system to use for general MRI and breast MRI, is the only acute care medical center in the surrounding area that offers new and advanced medical imaging technology.
The Vantage MR system includes features such as noise reduction, feet-first imaging, and contrast-free MRA. The system also takes advantage of Toshiba’s proprietary contrast-free protocols that allow for safer scanning of patients with known renal compromise and diabetes.

Toshiba’s Vantage MR system was named Best in KLAS in 2007 and 2006. It also holds the number one rating with MD Buyline. Toshiba displayed the Vantage MR systems at RSNA in Chicago from November 30 to December 5.
