Corona Regional Medical Center installs Toshiba’s Vantage Titan and Aquilon Prime systems



Corona Regional Medical Center (Corona, USA) has installed Toshiba’s Vantage Titan 1.5 Tesla (T) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging system. It has also chosen to feature the Aquilion Prime 160 and Aquilion Prime 40 computed tomography (CT) machines, also from Toshiba.

“Updating our imaging technology was an important decision” says Randy Gray, director of Diagnostic Imaging/Cardiac Cath Lab at the 238-bed, acute-care facility and medical center. “We recently started scanning on the Titan 1.5T and we are seeing an estimated 20% reduction in exam times. That, matched with the noise-reduction and wide bore, gives our patients a better experience and outcomes. We are looking forward to bringing on the CT systems and their low dose imaging in the coming months.”

Vantage Titan1.5T MR. The system Vantage Titan offers a 71-cm open bore, designed to reduce patient anxiety related to claustrophobia. Pianissimo noise-reduction technology should significantly reduce MR acoustic noise, while the M-Power user interface is intended to be intuitive and easy to use, with the aim of reducing exam time.

Corona Regional Medical Center choose the Aquilion PRIME 160 and Aquilion PRIME 40 to accommodate more patients in their radiology and emergency departments. The Aquilion PRIME is a scalable system, designed to deliver high-quality images with industry-leading dose reduction capabilities, including AIDR 3D and XR-29 compliance for safer exams.
