Offering a full range of advanced clinical applications for researchers, Toshiba Medical demonstrated its most advanced MR technology, the Vantage Galan 3T, at this year’s International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) annual meeting in Honolulu.

With advanced applications that include neuro, musculoskeletal, abdominal, cardiovascular, breast and prostate, the Vantage Galan 3T is designed to increase signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) by up to 20%, allowing for faster sampling and higher resolution images thanks to PURERF and Saturn technologies. This, combined with the ability to stack protocol sequences, is reported to result in quick neuro exams.

The Vantage Galan 3T enhances diagnostic confidence with new advanced clinical applications and helps make exams easy to perform with EasyTech workflow solutions, which streamline positioning and scanning. Additionally, the system offers non-contrast MRA sequences and makes scanning even more quiet with Pianissimo Zen technology that can reduce sound during acquisition by 99%.

“We designed the Vantage Galan 3T to help improve the physician experience with faster MR exams and address the challenges with 3T MR by making complex exams easier to perform,” says Dominic Smith, senior director, CT, PET/CT, and MR business units at Toshiba America Medical Systems Inc. “With the Vantage Galan 3T, we continue the practice of providing innovative MR systems to meet the needs of the research community.”
