Toshiba America Medical Systems will debut two new MRI and CTplatforms at the meeting, according to John Ariatti, vice presidentof marketing. In MRI, the 1.5-tesla Visart employs the graphicaluser interface used in the Tustin, CA, vendor's Flexart 0.5-teslaMRI platform, introduced in 1993 (SCAN 11/17/93). Visart, to beshown as a work-in-progress, will also use the latest in radio-frequencycoil technology and new magnet and hardware technology, Ariattisaid.

In CT, Toshiba will exhibit a new top-of-the-line scanner, Aspire.The work-in-progress system is a one-second scanner and uses solid-statedetector technology, Ariatti said. Continuous imaging is a work-in-progresshigh-speed CT technique for Aspire that will prove useful in CT-guidedinterventional studies, according to Ariatti. The technique acquiresimages at six frames per second with almost instantaneous reconstruction.Toshiba will also debut XPress/GX, a new spiral CT scanner witha smaller footprint than XPress/SX.

Max 1000 is a new all-purpose digital system for both angiographyand R/F applications. It features a C-arm integrated with a tiltingtabletop.
