Extending its reach in applications for MR in women's health, Toshiba unveiled at RSNA 2008 its Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Suite for use on the company's two 1.5T scanners, the Vantage Atlas and Vantage Titan. The cornerstone of the suite is the new multichannel Radiance Plus Breast Imaging Coil, a bilateral, multi-element coil designed to provide high temporal and spatial resolution for dynamic analysis and lesion characterization. The coil is mounted on the patient table to permit feet-first entry into the magnet. This allows a patient's head to remain outside the bore, reducing potential discomfort from claustrophobia, according to Toshiba.
