To provide patients with advanced 3T MR imaging, Jeff Davis Imaging,
which is located within Jennings American Legion Hospital in Jennings,
La., installed the Vantage Titan™ 3T from Toshiba America
Medical Systems, Inc. Vantage Titan 3T is a patient-friendly MR system
with multi-port transmission technology and quiet gradients that allow
for superior body imaging and improved patient comfort and compliance.
Jeff Davis Imaging will use the Vantage Titan 3T MR for general, neuro,
extremity and breast imaging.
"Toshiba's Vantage Titan 3T system offers the flexibility and image
quality needed to meet a wide range of clinical applications now and in
the future," said Joe Davis, manager of operations, Jeff Davis Imaging.
"Additionally, Toshiba's responsive applications team and hands-on
training helped our staff rapidly learn the system and begin imaging
patients shortly after installation."
Toshiba's Vantage Titan 3T MR has a 71 cm patient aperture providing a
greater feeling of openness for patients, helping to reduce
claustrophobia. It is also the quietest 3T MR system available, as
Toshiba's exclusive Pianissimo™ noise-reduction technology reduces exam
noise by up to 33 dB(A). The Titan 3T has the ability to perform
contrast-free MRA exams utilizing Toshiba's proprietary non-contrast
techniques, which make exams safer for patients with renal
"The Vantage Titan 3T allows hospitals to utilize a single MR system to
address various clinical needs, while offering comfortable exams for
patients and quality images for clinicians," said Stuart Clarkson,
director, MR Business Unit, Toshiba. "The system's multi-port
transmission creates body images that are free of di-electric shading
artifacts, enabling advanced MR imaging capabilities without sacrificing
quality, and solves the main clinical and patient compliance issues
associated with 3T MR imaging today."
Jeff Davis Imaging and Jennings American Legion Hospital also utilize an
AquilionTM 64 CT system, an Ultimax™ X-ray system, a RADREXTM-i
digital radiographic (DR) X-ray system and an InfinixTM DP-i
vascular X-ray system from Toshiba.
