What is the difference between the MRI scanner available at most places and the new Toshiba Vantage MRI?
The Toshiba Vantage will be able to accomodate larger patients, but with a larger variety of quality exams in a more spacious enviroment. The Vantage reduces exam noise by as much as 90%. Instead of being surrounded by the noise of a jackhammer, our patients will hear only gentle tapping. This softer volume reduces patient anxiety and increases the chances for a successful exam. This new technology also features a spacious enviroment that puts anxious and claustrophobic patients at ease. This system has one of the widest openings available in MRI. The Vantage magnet has been reduced to the shortest distance in the industry. This allows the machine to be open at both ends. In addition to its patient comforts, the Vantage MRI system will allow Thumb MRI to perform a wider variety of MRI exams including the latest stae-of-the-art imaging techniques. This includes abdominal, breast, vascular, TMJ, and EPI diffusion studies.
