Its most unique feature is one you may never hear.
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.
Vantage Atlas 1.5T reduces acoustic noise in three different ways.
The gradient coil is vacuum sealed, which significantly reduces acoustic noise.
Special insulation between the vacuum vessel and the magnet dampens sound and minimizes the vibrations transmitted to the magnet.
Silent Pulse Sequences
Vantage Atlas 1.5T also offers special sequences that further reduce gradient noise. These allow even the most sensitive patients to have a pleasant exam experience.
