Dot is a new way of scanning in MRI – a better way.

Dot scanning uses a suite of customizable engines – allowing the user to personalize exams according to patient needs, build in step-by-step user guidance, and automate MRI exams – either “out of the box” or based on the institution’s standards.

Your benefits:

  • Increased consistency and reproducibility
  • Greater ease-of-use
  • Higher productivity


With MAGNETOM Avantofit, the following Dot engines are available:

Compared to conventional IR sequences, syngo SPACE DIR improves the contrast between the white and the grey matter. This helps to increase diagnostic confidence of lesions in the brain, e.g. multiple sclerosis.

syngo SPACE DIR
New with syngo MR D13 are Double Inversion Recovery 3D protocols (SPACE DIR) with two user selectable inversion pulses for the simultaneous suppression of e.g. cerebro-spinal fluid and white matter.


CAIPIRINHA
CAIPIRINHA

CAIPIRINHA
A new iPAT1 sequence technique named CAIPIRINHA (Controlled Aliasing In Parallel Imaging Results IN Higher Acceleration) has been added. It can be applied to volumetric 3D imaging, e.g. in the abdominal region. Higher PAT factors require more oversampling. CAIPIRINHA pattern distributes k-space points more uniformly.


syngo RESOLVE

syngo RESOLVE
syngo RESOLVE (Readout Segmentation Of Long Variable Echo-trains) delivers high-resolution Diffusion-Weighted Imaging (DWI) to visualize the diffusion properties of fine anatomical structures, enabling accurate lesion evaluation. Additionally, this technique is largely insensitive to susceptibility effects, providing detailed anatomy-true diffusion imaging for brain, spine, breast, and prostate.


syngo ASL 3D
syngo ASL 3D

syngo ASL 3D
3D Arterial Spin Labeling (ASL) allows the non-invasive evaluation of brain perfusion without the injection of a contrast agent. syngo MR D13 offers the possibility of measuring 3D ASL with multiple inversion times (TI). This option provides data which can be used for Bolus Arrival Time (BAT) map calculations. Multiple TI acquisition allows for acquisition of raw label-control pairs at different (equidistant) inversion times. 3D ASL is the radiation free alternative to PET as it offers an increase in SNR and a shorter scan time with reduced motion sensitivity.


MR Elastography

MR Elastography
MR Elastography provides the possibility to non-invasively assess variations in tissue stiffness to improve treatment decisions especially in liver fibrosis.

WARP incorporates different susceptibility artifact reduction techniques. The syngo MR D13 software comes with basic syngo WARP functionality: 2D TSE sequences are combined with high bandwidth protocols and optimized RF pulses tailored to reduce susceptibility artifacts, e.g. originating from MR conditional metal implants.1
