DotGO Workflow

Go for consistent results, efficiently.

Clinical practice has shown, that DotGO helps increase efficiency with accurate exam-time scheduling and less user-interaction.

Reduce variation in exam-times to less than 1 minute1, helping to improve scheduling and avoid unplanned overtime

Reduce user-interaction by up to 42%2 and manage increasing patient volumes more efficiently, without compromising quality.

See clearly what the scanner is doing at any point in time with the Examination Queue and make on-the-fly decisions intuitively.

Provide highest quality MRI examinations for patients and referring physicians

"The first thing that I noticed about DotGO, it's a great looking interface, and I'm really excited to be able to work with this new interface [...] our reputation is to provide the highest quality MRI examinations for our patients and referring physicians. DotGO will help us to do that."

"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."

"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."

“As a radiologist as well as referring physician, having your level correctly labelled is timesaving, convenient... just practical. Spine labelling optimizes reading efficiency and helps to avoid false positive diagnosis leading to incorrect treatment.”

“Inexperienced staff can be led through examinations using the guidance features of the new Dot engines, reducing unnecessary or repetitive images. As a result, training time can be significantly reduced and consistent imaging quality achieved.” 5

Increase patient satisfaction by focusing on patient experience

"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 every time, and throughput has improved."
