Pianissimo

Reducing noise at the source, is the source of our patients' comfort.

MR acoustic noise is one of the major complaints of patients and medical staff. Toshiba's patented Pianissimo™ technology significantly reduces the noise in and around the MRI environment, making exams more comfortable and easier to complete. With Pianissimo, MRI no longer needs to be loud and disruptive.

Pianissimo Overview


Hardware vs. software

Quiet MR for every sequence, scan and patient. Toshiba hardware is designed to eliminate noise at the source.

  • Noise reduction is achieved on all sequences
  • Additional special sequences further reduce gradient noise

Competitors reduce noise by use of software only.

  • Limited to specialized pulse sequences
  • Software solutions modify the pulse sequences themselves which intentionally diminish the gradient performance

Vantage Titan 1.5T reduces acoustic noise in two ways:

Vacuum Chamber

The gradient coil is vacuum sealed, which significantly reduces acoustic noise.

Silent Pulse Sequences

Vantage Titan 1.5T also offers special sequences that further reduce gradient noise. These allow even the most sensitive patients to have a pleasant exam experience.

Increasing operational efficiency with Atlas coils

Atlas coils are lightweight and easy to position. Compared to conventional coils, Atlas coil design utilizes a unique combination of smaller elements, which deliver a higher signal-to-noise ratio, and larger elements for greater penetration. By simultaneously integrating up to 128 elements, Atlas provides better image quality overall.

  • Multiple coils can be used simultaneously creating flexibility for operators and comfort for patients
  • Convenient port locations mean that a large segment of exams can be performed feet first
  • 205 cm of table movement (optional) coupled with a sliding spine coil provides maximum flexibility for operators and feet first imaging for patients
