Everyone expects that there should be no compromise in image quality when
using a diagnostic tool with their patients, and now you do not have to make a
choice as TOSHIBA has pioneered a new segment with the Next Generation 1.5 T
system. With Vantage Elan's superior intrinsic homogeneity, achieved by
employing a new magnet technology, you no longer have to sacrifice quality in
your images. Toshiba's Vantage Elan provides excellent image quality even in
the most difficult examination requirements such as off center imaging or in a
large field of view requiring fat free images.

Patient care is always Toshiba's number one concern whenever we design a new
system. We have improved the comfort of the examination by introducing a new
technology called Pianissimo™ Σ that significantly reduces the noise for the
patient and the operator. Our new light coil design with Octave SPEEDER™
technology provides easier set up and a more comfortable experience for the
patient without sacrificing image quality. Our unique Feet First examination
technique also helps to reduce patient anxiety. Finally, our new bore
aperture, short length magnet and air flow system, provides your patient with
a comfortable place to have their examination with less stress.

All of Toshiba's world renowned true non-contrast applications, which are
available on our other Vantage series products, are also in the Vantage Elan
making it possible to perform a full body Non Contrast MRA. Toshiba pioneered
the technique to remove the need to use expensive and potentially dangerous
contrast media while still providing "contrast" in the images. We have saved
our users from choosing to inject contrast media in their patients while
giving them even better information without the problems that contrast can
cause in obscuring fine details.
