Dot UpgradeUpgrade your MAGNETOM system with Dot. Go for consistent results, efficiently.

In 2009, Siemens introduced Dot workflow technology, which today is comprised of 10 Dot engines - loaded with Siemens' automation functionality and efficient scanning optimizations.
In 2014, with the latest generation of Dot - DotGO - all of the engines are brought together with the Dot Cockpit, a central exam user interface available for MAGNETOM ESSENZA.

The upgrade includes new hardware and the latest software version for approximately 1/5 the cost of a new system.1

The main components are:

Dot Cockpit – The key to intuitive protocol management

The Dot Cockpit enables you to optimize image quality throughout your exams in a given throughput requirement.

“…with DotGO, I was able to create a new protocol in 45 seconds”1,2,3

Dot engines – Quality results for each exam

Dot engines, such as the Brain Dot Engine, are available for various body regions. The Brain Dot Engine is standard and enables consistent brain imaging regardless of the patient condition – even if conditions change during the course of the exam. Brain examinations are standardized through less user interactions, greater ease-of-use, and patient-specific adaptations.

The following Dot engines are optional:
