Toshiba introduces extra-large knee coil for Vantage Titan MR system

Toshiba America Medical Systems’ extra-large knee Array coil for the Vantage Titan MR system has received the US Food and Drug Administration clearance.

Toshiba said its extra-large knee Array coil can be used for most routine and advanced MR knee studies, including assessing cartilage, fractures or knee replacement.

According to Toshiba, its wide diameter is ideal for imaging a flexed or bent knee, which is useful when patients cannot straighten their leg due to injury or a medical condition.

Toshiba MR Business Unit director Stuart Clarkson said the coil can accommodate imaging bariatric patients and general population patients, allowing healthcare providers to use one knee coil for a range of procedures.
