SIGNA™ Pioneer - 70cm

 

ImageAmaze. 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.

Productivity

Multiply your MR productivity

Speed and simplicity

SIGNA Voyager has a host of features to speed up and simplify imaging. Turbo LAVA/LAVA Flex features enable faster body imaging and up to 47% shorter breath-holds, with multiple phases in a single breath-hold so that each scan is done right the first time. DISCO (Differential Sub-sampling with Cartesian Ordering) technology makes advanced body imaging with MR as simple as CT, enabling simultaneous high spatial and temporal resolution imaging of the entire liver, breast and prostate, and delivering an entire 3D volume in as little as 3 seconds.

AutoFlow efficiency

SIGNA Voyager's AutoFlow suite of features makes workflow easier and more efficient than ever:

  • READY View: image review and analysis platform that reduces number of clicks through automation and enables advanced visualization of multi-parametric data with ease.

  • Auto Protocol Optimization: simplifies and automates breath-hold imaging, making it easier for operators, while enhancing reliability of image quality and exam duration, regardless of patient profile.

  • Auto Navigators: delivers real-time robust free breathing respiratory motion compensation to streamline routine and advanced body imaging. They are compatible with DISCO, Turbo LAVA, Turbo LAVA Flex and GE's entire body imaging suite.

  • Pause and Resume: eliminates the need to redo scans or retrace your steps, giving you greater flexibility to respond to patient needs mid-scan. IntelliTouch touch-and-go landmarking, Auto Guidance and GE's famously simple setup with dual touch screens further enhance workflow efficiency and imaging reliability.

Multiply your ROI

SIGNA Voyager is designed to multiply your ROI to remarkable levels. With one of the smallest mechanical footprints of any wide bore 1.5T MR system in the industry, the SIGNA Voyager substantially lowers setup cost. And with one of the lowest power consumption levels in the industry, it ensures you keep operating costs surprisingly low.

Unmatched Patient Experience

ASTONISH … Designed to deliver an unmatched patient experience

With the SIGNA Pioneer, we're pioneering a patient-centered design built on a new concept of higher patient comfort and lower patient anxiety.

Soothing Silence

With SilentSuite, which is both revolutionary and proprietary, the SIGNA Pioneer reduces dB levels from an ear-splitting, motorcycle-level 91dB to within 3dB of scan room ambient noise. Along with this dramatic advance comes the first-ever complete Silent Neuro Exam that includes Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI). In addition, we have expanded our Silent imaging capability beyond neuro imaging to musculoskeletal and spine imaging.

Breathe Free

With its free-breathing imaging applications and advanced motion correction software, SIGNA Pioneer will compensate for patient movement and allow complete free-breathing body imaging. This includes dynamic contrast enhanced MR imaging, improving dramatically patient experience but also image quality in very challenging situations.

Rest Easy

The 70 cm wide bore design means more space and less anxiety. Not only is the bore wider, but so is the table. The SIGNA Pioneer's Comfort Plus patient table even sits lower to the ground, making it easier for patients to get on and off.

Non invasive procedures

3D Arterial Spin Labeling (3D ASL) delivers quantitative perfusion assessment-without radiation or the need for injection. IDEAL IQ delivers whole liver 3D coverage in a single breath-hold. It provides a non-invasive, quantitative assessment of triglyceride fat content in the liver that can aid in diagnosis. Further, our Inhance Suite delivers a set of non-contrast angiography solutions.

Testimonials

Here's what our customers are saying about the SIGNA Pioneer:

"The need of endorectal coil is no longer a clinical concern for us. Both FOCUS and DISCO are playing a key role to help delineate and characterize even small pathologies."

"SIGNA Pioneer is excellent. All of us are satisfied with the performance of SIGNA Pioneer. Fat suppression seems to be very impressive with LAVA FLEX. Turbo LAVA FLEX contributes to shortening of the scan time from 20 seconds to 16 seconds. It has helped to improve the success rate of dynamic breath-holding studies in the upper abdomen."

"One word: "Robustness." The 3.0T SIGNA Pioneer and dedicated breast applications are the best match to boost the clinical diagnosis in our institution. Fat-saturation failures in challenging prosthesis cases are behind us and part of our history."

"SIGNA Pioneer is our 3rd 3.0T system and I am very impressed with the technology included in this system because the image quality it delivers exceeds my expectations. I am very pleased with the good uniformity and SNR performance of the system. The new RF technology is really making a difference. Also with the short scan times and echo times, we are able to achieve are similar to what I would expect in a system with much higher gradient specifications. The new gradient technology in the SIGNA Pioneer is exceptional."
