Toshiba Partnership

Phoenix Technology Corporation Partners with Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. to Offer ACR Accreditation Support Services to MRI Customers.

WOODSTOCK, GEORGIA (January 10, 2012) – Phoenix Technology Corporation™ (PTC) announced today that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Toshiba America Medical Systems, Inc. to offer American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation support services to Toshiba’s magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) customers.

Through this arrangement, Toshiba’s MRI clients will be provided turnkey physics solutions to the ACR MRI accreditation process. PTC, a full service diagnostic medical physics consulting firm, offers comprehensive consulting services in the area of Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), which include quality assurance (QA) testing of the magnet and quality control training for MRI technologists to conform with current requirements of the ACR Accreditation Program. PTC will assist with the development, implementation and maintenance of the on-site MRI ACR QA program and work with the MRI technologists to ensure that optimum image quality is achieved and protocols for continued QA are understood and updated. This service not only ensures that a highly trained physicist completes theMRI unit’s System Performance Evaluation, which is a required part of the ACR application process, but also provides assistance with other challenging areas of the ACR process.

“Phoenix Technology’s physicist and staff look forward to assisting Toshiba’s clients with the often times stressful accreditation process. The end result will give rise to improved patient outcomes through enhanced image quality,” said Gregory Heathcock, Phoenix Technology Corporation™, President.
