MRI of the brain is one of the most commonly performed exams in clinical routine and research.
But reimbursement for brain examinations have dropped by 45%* over the past three years.
Improved throughput is crucial for this core exam.
GOBrain is a push-button brain exam with all relevant orientations and contrasts including diffusion and T2 – clinically validated and in only 5 minutes.*
GOBrain is supported by Siemens' Tim 4G RF architecture and ultra-high coil element density, providing excellent SNR and fast acquisition times.
Assume a general practice conducts 25 exams per day. Typically 4-5 are of the brain. With GOBrain3 brain exams can be potentially doubled to 8-10 cases a day due to the reduced scan time.
As reimbursements for core brain exams have dropped by 45%* in the last three years increased productivity is crucial. With GOBrain a diagnostic brain exam can be completed in 5 minutes – potentially doubling throughput.

Routine DWI is a critical component of almost all clinical neuro imaging protocols of the head. By accelerating your routine DWI, this can result in better routine general scanner management.
