Fairview Southdale Hospital in Edina, Minn, improved its advanced imaging capabilities and patient comfort by installing the first 16-channel Vantage Titan1.5T scalable system from Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc, Tustin, Calif. Fairview will use the system for all general MR exams, as well as breast and cardiac imaging, and expand its capabilities by offering prostate imaging to patients.

The 16-channel Titan 1.5T features a 71-cm bore and feet-first exams to reduce claustrophobia. Toshiba’s exclusive Pianissimo noise-reduction technology, advanced non-contrast imaging, integrated coils, and intuitive M-Power user interface make the system easier to use for the clinician and more comfortable for the patient.
