Customers about DotGO

"With DotGO it’s going to be so much easier and quicker to build protocols on the fly, and not interfere with taking away table time from the patient."

Anthony Pavone

Chief MRI Technologist
Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, New York, USA

"[…] the wow factor for me is the way that you can actually see the whole protocol. So you can see the different strategies, you can see the sequences – they’re actually in each strategy. You can see the clinical decisions much more clearly. It’s all laid out in front of you in one platform, on one page."
Karen Kettless
Senior Clinical Application Specialist, Siemens Healthcare MR


Customers about Dot Engines

"The number of failed examinations has been drastically reduced by the Dot engines and the angiographies have become better. Everything is simply much more standardized now."
Professor Thomas Vogl, MD
Medical Director of the Institute for Diagnostic and Interventional Radiology of the University Hospital Frankfurt
Speaker of the Frankfurt Klinikallianz

"By customizing Dot, we have been able to enhance several of our protocols. For example, the Dot Decisions functionality in Abdomen Dot Engine has enabled us to schematize and simplify these protocols. With Dot, we can now ensure our examinations are far more reproducible and of excellent quality."
Arnaud Lambert, Technologist
Imagerie Médicale Saint Marie, Osny, France

"With the Cardiac Dot Engine, we have been able to bring cardiac examinations into our clinical routine."

Professor Christoph Bremer, MD
Head of the Department of Radiology
St. Franziskus Hospital Münster, Germany

 

“The main way that Dot benefits the patient is it reduces scan time. So if a routine brain would take say 12, 14, 15 minutes, with the Dot engine, you may be able to reduce that by 2 to 3 minutes, which is 20% of the scan time.”
Bob Day, Chief Technical Officer

Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, New York, USA

“Within our environment, we just could not provide a cardiac MRI service without the Cardiac Dot Engine.”
Dr. Russell Bull, MRCP, FRCR
Consultant Radiologist
Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Bournemouth, UK

“Dot can be decisive in reporting and medical management. Vertebra labeling in Spine Dot e.g. assures you to label your vertebral levels correctly even in the case of difficult vertebral anomalies. It can save you a lot of time while reporting but more important it helps you to avoid pitfalls like calling disease at a wrong level”
Dr. Johan Dehem, Chief Radiologist
VZW Jan Yperman, Belgium
 

“As a manager of a busy MRI unit, I’m under constant pressure to ensure that the waiting list is kept as short as possible. And, of course, one way to do this is to shorten your examination times, and Cardiac Dot Engine has enabled me to do this.”
Matthew Benbow, Superintendent Radiographer
Royal Bournemouth Hospital, Bournemouth, UK


Customers about Dot concept

"We continue to innovate in MR technology but consistency and completeness of exams in MR imaging remains the biggest clinical challenge. Dot is the latest improvement that not only provides consistency between patients and ensures appropriate coverage but also guarantees expected outcomes from every technologist."
Lawrence Tanenbaum, MD
New York, NY, USA
 

"We welcome the installation of the auto voice feature, which is also very useful. Previously, we had to stop the process during examinations to speak to the patients.With this feature, we do not have to stop the process everytime, and throughput has improved."
Mr. Koyano, Technologist

Saitama Sekishinkai Hospital, Saitama, Japan

“I am guided through the start of the liver dynamic in an easy and clear way. It helps me achieve the right timing for the contrast medium.”
Sabrina Koch, Technologist
St. Franziskus Hospital Münster, Germany

“AutoAlign is helpful especially for colleagues who rarely perform knee examinations because the slices are positioned automatically, which saves a lot of time. Furthermore, our knee examinations have become reproducible.”
Linda Willeke, Technologist
St. Franziskus Hospital Münster, Germany

"Dot and its AutoAlign function have enabled us to position slices automatically without the need for user intervention.”
Alexandre Fuchs, MD
Radiologist
Imagerie Médicale Sainte Marie, Osny, France
