GOKnee2D and GOKnee2DSMS are fast and push-button 2D MRI protocols of the knee which acquire all relevant clinical information in approximately 10 or 5 minutes scan time, respectively. GOKnee2D is based on standard TSE pulse sequences with standard parallel imaging acceleration and provides 5 different, routinely used contrasts for diagnostic assessment. GOKnee2DSMS provides the same datasets and contrast and is additionally accelerated with Simultaneous Multi-Slice. Both GOKnee2D and GOKnee2DSMS have been clinically validated1 for a broad range of clinical conditions such as cartilage defects or meniscal tears. Machine intelligence assists in efficiently planning and performing the scans with automatic positioning and adaption of scan parameters.

GOKnee2D / GOKnee2DSMS are available for MAGNETOM Lumina, MAGNETOM Vida, MAGNETOM Vida Fit at 3T and for MAGNETOM Altea, MAGNETOM Sola and MAGNETOM Sola Fit at 1.5T.
Prerequisites are software version syngo MR XA20A or higher and the Large Joint Dot Engine for GOKnee2D. For GOKnee2DSMS the SMS license is required additionally.
