Same Magnet. Next Generation MR Capabilities.

If you currently own a GE SIGNA Excite, SIGNA LX, SIGNA HDe, SIGNA HD, SIGNA HDxt, SIGNA HDx or SIGNA Vibrant scanner, you may be eligible to upgrade to the SIGNA Explorer through the SIGNA Explorer Lift program.1

With the SIGNA Explorer Lift program, you can:

  • Build upon your existing magnet’s strong foundation and potentially increase procedures by 30%2
  • Reset the life of your MR while saving up to 50% in construction costs3
  • Grow beyond your standard of care and access today’s technology at half the cost3

 

1 Exclusions and other terms and conditions may apply. Offer may not be obtainable in all regions. Please contact your local GE representative with any questions about this upgrade program, including if it is available in your region.

2 With the SIGNA Explorer Lift, you may be able to scan 2-3 more patients per day due to new capabilities and productivity.

3 Total upfront cost includes Equipment, Downtime and Siting. Actual results may vary. Based on average estimate construction costs to upgrade a 1.5T 60 cm to SIGNA Explorer Lift vs. replacing with a new wide bore.

Productivity

Build upon your existing magnet’s strong foundation

An upgrade to SIGNA Explorer can help you unlock productivity benefits not available with earlier generation systems.

Faster signal and Higher SNR - OpTix Optical RF technology offers high quality analog to signal conversion and can provide a gain in SNR of up to 27% over conventional analog signal receivers.1

Simplified Workflow – Access Flex Coils with enhanced range of use. Use Ready-Tools to change workflow and potentially realize higher patient throughput.

Time-Saving Applications – Robust applications not only deliver excellent imaging quality, but can help improve workflow. Time savers include READY Brain, an automated brain exam even non-expert users can operate, and simplified whole body diffusion with eDWI in as little as seven minutes.

Advanced motion correction techniques - 3D PROMO enables motion corrected imaging with 3D volumetric imaging for brain exams. PROPELLER 3.0 delivers motion robust imaging from head to toe and Body Navigators are designed to deliver real time, robust free-breathing respiratory motion compensation.

Silent Scan – Our revolutionary proprietary technology shatters industry norms to reduce noise like never before – taking it down to less than 3 decibels above ambient.

Imaging around MR Conditional Implants – MAVRIC SL enables advanced visualization of soft tissues and bone near MR Conditional devices.
 

1 Compared to a new GE 1.5T MR system - upfront cost includes equipment, construction required for the equipment install and potential mobile cost during downtime. Actual costs will vary depending upon your site's specific circumstances.

Financial

Reset the life of your magnet

When compared to replacing your magnet, SIGNA Explorer Lift can reduce total upfront costs by 50%.1

What’s more is with a SIGNA Explorer Lift, you can minimize disruption with less downtime as compared to the extended downtime experienced when the magnet is replaced.2

1 Total upfront cost includes Equipment, Downtime and Siting. Actual results may vary. Based on average estimate construction costs to upgrade a 1.5T 60 cm to SIGNA Explorer Lift vs. replacing with a new wide bore.

2 Downtime is specific to construction time that might be required for the upgrade. It does not include additional room renovation and improvements the customer would like to do, e.g. coil cabinets, room lighting, new flooring, etc.
