New magnetic resonance (MR) tools available from Toshiba are designed to improve workflow and standardize cardiac imaging procedures. CardioLine technology is available on Toshiba’s Vantage Titan 1.5T and 3T MR systems.

CardioLine is a positioning tool that cuts down on inconsistent results due to manual imaging and differences between operators’ technique. Using anatomic landmarks for alignment, the software enables capture of six standard cardiac views without operator interaction.

In addition, QMass and QFlow tools integrate with Vital Images’ Vitrea software to allow rapid post-processing of cardiac MR images. QMass provides rapid quantitative analysis of MR data to facilitate accurate diagnoses, while QFlow offers 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 of the MR business unit for Toshiba. “Efficiency and productivity is built into every Toshiba MR system, giving hospitals the flexibility to focus on improving patient care.”
