Dot offers a customizable framework for patient personalization, user guidance and exam automation that result in consistent and reliable examination results. The Tim Application Suite including Neuro, Angio, Cardiac, Body, Onco, Breast, Ortho, Pediatric, Tim CT Fast View, and Scientific Suite Syngo MR software including 1D/2D PACE, Syngo BLADE, iPAT2, Phoenix, Inline technologies, Syngo WARP, CAIPIRINHA.
Comprehensive head and spine examinations can be performed with dedicated programs. High resolution protocols and fast protocols for uncooperative patients are provided. The Neuro Suite also includes protocols for diffusion imaging, perfusion imaging, and MRI.
Excellent MR Angiography can be performed to visualize arteries and veins with or without contrast agent. Cardiac Suite The cardiac suite covers comprehensive 2D routine cardiac applications, ranging from morphology and ventricular function to tissue characterization. Featuring Syngo BEAT 2D in conjunction with iPAT and T-PAT techniques.
MR imaging has proven a very high sensitivity for breast lesions and is the gold standard for the examination of silicone implants. Extremely high spatial and temporal resolution can be achieved in very short measuring times by using iPAT with GRAPPA. Excellent soft tissue differentiation, customized protocols (e.g. with fat saturation or water excitation or silicone excitation), as well as flexible multi planar visualization allow for fast, simple and reproducible evaluation of MR breast examinations.
Body Suite covers your needs for clinical body applications. Ultrafast high resolution 2D and 3D protocols are provided for abdomen, pelvis, MR Colonography, MRCP, dynamic kidney, and MR Urography applications. Siemens unique 2D PACE technique makes body imaging easy allowing for multi-breath hold examinations as well as free breathing during the scans. Motion artifacts are greatly reduced with 2D PACE Inline technology.
MR imaging has an excellent advantage of soft tissue contrast, multi-planar capabilities and the possibility of selectively suppressing specific tissue e.g. fat or water. This helps visualize pathologies, particularly metastases. The Onco Suite features a collection of sequences as well as protocols and evaluation tools that guide through a detailed screening of clinical indications, such as in hepatic neoplasms.
Ortho Suite is a comprehensive collection of protocols for joint and spine imaging. MR imaging is especially suitable for avascular necrosis and internal derangements. The protocols included in this Suite can also be applied for imaging of tumors and infections.
The parameters for pediatric imaging vary significantly in comparison to the parameters for adults. The reasons are developing tissues, body size, faster heart rates and restricted compliance with breath-hold commands. Protocols can be adapted for imaging infants.
Scientific Suite supports the scientifically oriented user with an easy access to application-specific data for further processing and advanced image computation methods.
