Reducing noise at the source, is the source of our patients' comfort.
MR acoustic noise is one of the major complaints of patients and medical staff. Canon Medical Systems' Pianissimo™ technology significantly reduces the noise in and around the MRI environment, making exams more comfortable and easier to complete. With Pianissimo, MRI no longer needs to be loud and disruptive.
Hardware vs. software
Quiet MR for every sequence, scan and patient. Canon Medical Systems hardware is designed to eliminate noise at the source.
- Noise reduction is achieved on all sequences
- Additional special sequences further reduce gradient noise
Competitors reduce noise by use of software only.
- Limited to specialized pulse sequences
- Software solutions modify the pulse sequences themselves which intentionally diminish the gradient performance
Vantage Titan 1.5T reduces acoustic noise in two ways:
Vacuum Chamber The gradient coil is vacuum sealed, which significantly reduces acoustic noise. Silent Pulse Sequences Vantage Titan 1.5T also offers special sequences that further reduce gradient noise. These allow even the most sensitive patients to have a pleasant exam experience.
