The increasing use of MR to diagnose a variety of conditions and illnesses has led to demands for greater efficiency. Too often, it seems that productivity is at odds with giving patients the time and attention they desire. Smart Workflow provides an end-to-end workflow solution supporting a better patient and staff experience, resulting in patient-centered productivity.
Smart Workflow in the exam room
Allow your staff to focus less on technology, and fully engage with patients. By reducing and simplifying the number of steps needed for patient preparation, even new operators who have never worked with the scanner can proceed with confidence. Smart Workflow guides and coaches where required, and automates where possible achieving high productivity while enabling your staff to focus on patients.
Guided exam set-up
Coaching and visual guidance are provided at the front of the magnet facade
Auto patient centering
Region of interest is automatically placed in the iso-center of the magnet
Patient’s breathing is detected without any operator interaction
Auto coil element selection
Optimal coil elements are selected automatically based on anatomy planning
In-room exam start
Exam start can be initiated with a single touch of at the patient's side
The entire workflow is smooth: Patient positioning and set-up; launching the scan as soon as we leave the exam room; the intuitive touchscreen on the gantry; Touchless patient sensing… All of these things are much better than on our old system."
