GOBrain Protocols

GOBrain is a diagnostic brain exam which takes 5 minutes1. It consists of five diagnostically-important MR brain protocols acquired with optimized pulse sequences. Integrated with individual anatomical landmark-based AutoAlign technology providing automatic slice positioning, this push-button exam requires minimal interaction from the technologist. The included sequences are a sagittal T1-weighted, axial T2-weighted, axial T2-weighted DarkFluid, axial diffusion-weighted and an axial T2*-weighted contrast.

Please note: Protocols are based on software version syngo.MR E11A.
