DotGO Workflow

Go for consistent results, efficiently.

Increase operational efficiency in MRI with the DotGO workflow. With the Dot Cockpit and Dot engines you can easily standardize your protocols and achieve quality results for each exam. Go for consistent results efficiently, across patients and scanners – with DotGO.
 


Intuitive protocol management with the Dot Cockpit.

Siemens - MRI - MRI Software - Dot Cockpit

The Dot Cockpit is your central interface for all protocol management tasks, enabling highly flexible and intuitive configuration, manipulation, organization and updating of all protocols. Build and standardize protocols quickly and intuitively.

4 The 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.
