Winn Army Community Hospital hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday behind WACH’s emergency department to celebrate the grand opening of the facility’s new Toshiba Vantage Titan 3T magnetic resonance imaging medical system.
The system’s capability is double that of the existing MRI system. It produces whole-body images and makes advanced magnetic resonance imaging more comfortable for patients. Additional benefits and features include:
• Large, open bore: Vantage Titan 3T’s 71-centimeter patient aperture enables hospitals to image bariatric patients with ease and provides patients with a greater feeling of openness to reduce claustrophobia.
• Noise-reduction technology: Toshiba’s PianissimoTM technology reduces exam noise, making the Vantage Titan 3T MR the quietest available.
• Integrated coils: Toshiba’s Atlas SPEEDERTM integrated-coil technology reduces procedure time and improves the exam experience.
“Vantage Titan 3T MR is the industry’s first 3T MR system that enables hospitals to use a single MR system to address all their MR clinical needs,” said Stuart Clarkson, director of the MR business unit at Toshiba.
