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

Knee Dot Engine
Abdomen Dot Engine

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.

What is new with a Dot Upgrade – now with syngo MR E11?

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
Anthony Pavone, Chief MRI Technologist
Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, New York, U.S.

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.

“We are really satisfied with the Dot Upgrade. The installation required very little downtime and our technologists were able to work right away with the new user interface.”2
Dr. Jochen Hansmann, Chief Radiologist
Theresien Hospital, Mannheim, Germany

2Uttalelser fra Siemens' kunder beskrevet her er kunder baserer seg på resultater som ble oppnådd i de respektive spesifikke omgivelsene hos kunden'. Siden det ikke finnes et "typisk" sykehus og resultatene er avhengige av forskjellige variabler (som for eksempel størrelsen på sykehuset, behandlingssammensetning, graden av IT integrering) kan det ikke garanteres at andre kunder vil oppnå samme resultater.

4The MRI restrictions (if any) of the metal implant must be considered prior to patient undergoing MRI exam. MR imaging of patients with metallic implants brings specific risks. However, certain implants are approved by the governing regulatory bodies to be MR conditionally safe. For such implants, the previously mentioned warning may not be applicable. Please contact the implant manufacturer for the specific conditional information. The conditions for MR safety are the responsibility of the implant manufacturer, not of Siemens.
