See things way beyond your expectations. The SIGNA Pioneer is named after the many ways we are exploring and expanding what is possible in MR imaging. Our latest pioneering technology creates sharper scans than you thought were possible, for more patients per day than you considered possible, assuring more comfort and less anxiety than your patients imagined possible.
MAGiC (Magnetic Resonance Image Compilation) For the first time ever in the industry, you can generate multiple image contrasts in a single MRI scan including T1, T2, STIR, T1 FLAIR, T2 FLAIR* and PD contrasts of the brain in a single acquisition. One scan that can do the work of many, with images acquired in as little as half the time to acquire separate sequences, fully integrated in a seamless workflow. * It is recommended to acquire conventional T2 FLAIR images in addition to MAGiC. Complete flexibility for multiple contrast changes You can change the contrast of the image by manipulating TR, TE and TI even after the scan is completed and the patient has exited the MR room. MAGiC processing will provide you any desired contrast paving the way to new diagnostic capabilities. MAGiC even goes beyond standard MR weighted images by processing raw data into parametric T1, T2 and PD maps.
Total Digital Imaging (TDI) The SIGNA Pioneer offers startling advances in imaging starting with pioneering technology called TDI, meaning greater clarity and increased SNR by up to 25%. TDI is built on three fundamental components: Smart digitization with GE’s Direct Digital Interface (DDI) which employs an independent analog-to-digital converter to digitize inputs from each of 97 RF channels, literally redefining the concept of an RF channel. Not only does DDI technology improve SNR, but it also works with legacy GE coils for unmatched flexibility. Digital Surround Technology (DST) combines the superior SNR and sensitivity of the high-density surface coils with the superior homogeneity and deeper signal penetration of the integrated RF body coil allowing richer, higher quality in spine and body imaging. eMode technology replaces analog blocking circuits with intelligent ultra-fast switches which further expand zero TE imaging capabilities. Besides its unique and future-ready 97 RF channel technology, the SIGNA Pioneer uses a high-homogeneity 3.0T magnet to bring consistency in image quality across patients, a solid foundation for your long term investment . Integrated TDI Coil Suite The SIGNA Pioneer benefits from the exclusive TDI Coil Suite which delivers remarkable image quality with a set of coils designed to be patient-centered. It includes an embedded posterior array, high-density Head & Neck array, an anterior array with extended anatomical coverage and other highly performing MSK-dedicated coils.
