Sentinelle Vanguard™ for Toshiba
The Next Generation in Breast MRI
The Sentinelle Vanguard for Toshiba leverages an innovative patient support design with unique Variable Coil Geometry™ to transform your Toshiba MRI into a dedicated system for breast MR imaging and intervention. With features not available in traditional breast MRI coils, this next-generation system optimizes imaging and access, patient care and comfort, and practice efficiency.
High quality imaging
Our unique Variable Coil Geometry allows imaging coils to be customized for each breast of every patient, which improves signal-to-noise ratio over fixed coils. This results in the ability to resolve detail in morphology which can lead to better breast cancer management and treatment options.
The open design of the Vanguard patient support allows maximum access to the breast for ease of positioning. Coils can be adjusted for different sized breasts and different areas for intervention and the coils can easily be moved medially and laterally, as well as anteriorly and posteriorly, providing the greatest flexibility in coil and grid placement. This permits optimal access for targeting in all quadrants of the breast. The Sentinelle Vanguard for Toshiba is universally compatible with leading biopsy devices and localization needles.
Patients can be positioned comfortably and quickly with the Sentinelle Vanguard for Toshiba. The ability to customize coil and biopsy grids to every patient can decrease set up time, increase patient accommodation and improve access to lesions for biopsy. Coil configurations are interchangeable for each application while using a common patient support.
Patient care and comfort
Our patient-centric patient support features state-of-the-art ergonomics to comfortably accommodate patients of all sizes, with arms at side and arms over the head positioning. In combination with Toshiba’s open bore MRI systems, this unique coil design maximizes patient space which can increase access to a larger patient population; reduce anxiety and improve the patient’s experience. Patient comfort can greatly reduce artifacts due to patient movement, resulting in better imaging.
