Non-Contrast MR Angiography
Based on a growing body of evidence that links gadolinium-based contrast agents with Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis/Nephrogenic Fibrosing Dermopathy (NSF/NFD), there is a clear need for rapid, ultra-clear MRA without the use of contrast agents.
In 1998, Toshiba pioneered non-contrast MR imaging. Now, with over 10 years of clinical experience, Toshiba's Vantage systems are the only systems available with a complete suite of contrast-free MRA techniques.
