Toshiba's MR Software Delivers Faster, Easier Cardiac Exams
WASHINGTON --(Business Wire)--
MR cardiac exams are faster and more accurate with new tools from
Toshiba (News - Alert) America Medical Systems, Inc. CardioLine, now available on the
Vantage Titan™ 1.5T and 3T MR systems, improves workflow and
standardizes exams to meet the pressures of today's cardiology market.
A Toshiba exclusive, CardioLine is a fully automated cardiac positioning
alignment tool that reduces exam times and inconsistent results, which
are often due to manual positioning and multiple operators. It
automatically detects anatomical landmarks for accurate and reproducible
positioning to complete alignment of six standard cardiac views without
any operator interaction.
Also available for enhanced cardiac exams are QMass and QFlow.
Integrated with the Vitrea® software from Vital Images, Inc.,
QMass and QFlow provide a full set of tools for faster post-processing
of cardiac MR cases. QMass is a workflow solution with fast quantitative
analysis of cardiac MR data for more accurate diagnoses. QFlow secures
quantitative analysis of velocity-encoded phase contrast MR data.
"We strive to develop the most advanced MR technology to put our
customers first in delivering efficient and accurate diagnoses that can
impact their bottom line and patient experience," said Beverly Plost,
director, MR Business Unit, Toshiba. "Efficiency and productivity is
built into every Toshiba MR system, giving hospitals the flexibility to
focus on improving patient care."
Toshiba will howcase these cardiac MR tools at this year's American
College of Cardiology (ACC) annual meeting in Washington, D.C., March
29-April 2, 2014 (Booth #2323).
