Cardiac Dot Engine
Typically, only a small number of your technicians / radiographers are confident in performing cardiac MRI (example: only 2 out of 16 could).1 The Cardiac Dot Engine offers automated planning of all cardiac views with AutoAlign Heart. Exam strategies can be selected based on the patient’s physiological conditions, and all protocols are adapted accordingly.
- Automated planning of all cardiac views with AutoAlign Heart
- Inline Ventricular function for diagnostic information on the fly
- Comprehensive heart exam in less than 30 minutes2
In the combination with GOHeart3,4 protocols the Cardiac Dot Engine helps make CMR part of the clinical routine. GOHeart offers both a 12 min abbreviated exam (function, LGE) in free-breathing for vulnerable patients as well as a 30 min full CMR exam with breath-hold (function, stress perfusion, mapping, LGE).
