Singapore: Toshiba has partnered with Shands at the University of Florida (UF) and the Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California (USC), US, for research in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), as well as body and cardiac imaging.
UF and USC are among the several leading research institutions that are making breakthroughs in advanced MRI with Toshiba America Medical Systems' Vantage Titan 3T MR system.
Dr Anthony Mancuso, professor and chairman, Department of Radiology, College of Medicine, UF, said that, "We're utilizing the Titan 3T MR to enhance visualization of Cerebral Spinal Fluid (CSF) flow non-invasively and in the research of traumatic brain injuries from combat and athletics. The Titan 3T fulfills all the promises of a high-end 3T system, with high image quality, gradient homogeneity and patient-focused features."
"Partnering with prestigious universities such as USC and Shands at the University of Florida illustrates our commitment to developing advanced technology that can expand the potential clinical applications of MR imaging," said Mr Suresh Narayan, senior manager, market development, MR Business Unit, Toshiba.
