Toshiba American Systems Inc. today announced FDA clearance of their M-Power interface aimed at increasing MR exam efficiency. The customizable user interface enables technologists to streamline and accelerate the imaging process and enhance diagnosis, according to the company.

M-Power will be available for use on Toshiba’s Vantage Atlas, Vantage Titan 1.5 and Titan 3T MR systems with the ability to upgrade already-installed systems.

M-Power reduces the steps to start a procedure, and the interface is designed to enhance and personalize work flow. The Atlas Compass software automates coil selection and turns on the proper coil elements needed for an exam. Finally, mVOX, a volume imaging acquisition sequence available for neuro and orthopedic applications, allows the acquisition of all 3D imaging to be acquired at the same time, according to the company.

“M-Power makes Toshiba’s sophisticated suite of MR software easy to learn and use, allowing technologists of every skill level to access the system’s full range of functionality,” Stuart Clarkson, director, MR Business Unit, Toshiba, said in the company release. “MR technologists are now able to design their own protocols and easily access mTools for greater convenience and productivity.”
