The Titan 3T features technology for advanced neurological studies:

  • Time-Spatial Labeling Inversion Pulse (Time-SLIP), Toshiba’s proprietary non-contrast technique, helps visualize CSF bulk flow non-invasively.
  • Diffusion tensor imaging enables the visualization of diffusion and anistrophy, providing a clear image of white matter and diffusion.
  • Diffusion tensor tractography is a unique tool for aiding in the evaluation of brain structures and the visualization of axonal fiber architectures.

Meng Law, M.D., MBBS, FRACR; professor, Radiology; director, Neuroradiology and Neuroradiology Fellowship Program, Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, will discuss clinical applications of advanced neuro 3T MR imaging during a presentation titled “Advances in High-Field Neurological Imaging.” The educational how-to session will take place at noon on Wednesday, May 22, 2013.

Toshiba’s Vantage Titan 3T provides safer, more accurate neuro images for anatomical imaging, functional studies and CSF flow evalution without contrast,” said Suresh Narayan, senior manager, Market Development, MR Business Unit, Toshiba. “By offering educational sessions with leading clinicians, Toshiba is helping other healthcare providers improve patient care with advanced MR imaging.”
