Total Digital Imaging (TDI)
The SIGNATM Artist offers startling
advances in imaging and a total imaging win with TDI.
GE's Direct Digital Interface (DDI) employs
an independent analog-to-digital converter to
digitize inputs from each of up to 128 RF channels,
eliminating unnecessary noise enhancement.
eMode technology replaces analog blocking circuits with intelligent ultra-fast switches which further expand zero TE imaging capabilities.
16 Channel Shoulder and T/R Knee Coils
The 16 channel shoulder coil is a novel anatomy-adaptive coil design that provides efficient positioning workflow and outstanding patient comfort. The flexibility of the anterior paddle makes it possible to get closer to the patient to maximize SNR and improve imaging outcomes.
The 16 channel transmit/receive (T/R) knee coil delivers high-resolution knee imaging. The T/R design provides improved B1 performance with the potential for higher resolution results, lower SAR and elimination of image backfolding. The larger diameter accommodates a wider range of patients, allows for simple patient setup and elevates patient comfort. The new design supports image acceleration in all directions for faster and enhanced clinical outcomes.
The 70cm wide bore design takes the fear out of MR. The expansive diameter, soft lighting and soothing fans help ease patient anxieties and concerns. The wider table design sits lower to the ground, enabling easier patient positioning. Lightweight and adaptable coil designs conform gently to a patient’s anatomy, elevating the patient experience. SIGNA™ Artist, designed with patient comfort in mind.
eXpress Dockable Table
The SIGNATM Artist's eXpress table, with a memory foam surface, delivers feet-first or head-first imaging for everyone. With its detachable egress, you never have to worry about how quickly you can exit the MR suite. And with IntelliTouch positioning, just touch the edge of the table to position your patients.
In addition to accommodating larger patients, full 50x50x50cm FOV in a 70cm wide bore allows you to properly image off-center anatomy such as shoulders and hips. The SIGNATM Artist's phenomenal homogeneity enables our largest FOV ever.
deFINE takes the results of SIGNATM Artist to the next level by enhancing the image appearance with integrated inline optimizable settings. These settings can be generated for each individual sequence or for the entire exam.
