IMAGINE scans sharper than you thought possible
Outstanding magnet homogeneity. Uncompromised performance. RF Architecture. A total Imaging win.
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 .
Total Digital Imaging RF Architecture … A total imaging win
Experience the unique advantages of Total Digital Imaging (TDI) with SIGNA™ Pioneer. TDI helps deliver consistently sharper images than conventional MR systems with higher SNR, superior homogeneity and uniformity. TDI consists of 3 components;
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, to deliver richer, sharper, higher quality images.
Direct Digital Interface (DDI) employs a separate analog-to-digital converter to capture and digitize every input from each of up to 65 RF channels, to vastly improve SNR.
eMode technology replaces analog blocking circuits with intelligent ultra-fast switches which further expand zero TE imaging capabilities.
Integrated TDI Coil Suite
GE’s TDI Coil Suite delivers remarkable image quality with a patient-centered design set of coils. It includes embedded posterior array, high-density Head & Neck array, anterior array with extended anatomical coverage and other high-performing flexible and dedicated MSK coils.
48 Channel Head Coil and Coil Suite
The optional 48 Channel Head Coil delivers phenomenal performance for every patient. Its fit-adaptable design addresses 99.99 percent of the patient population while preserving high SNR. It also maximizes the clinical capabilities of advanced imaging applications such as HyperWorks technologies and is compatible with both EEG and fMRI simultaneously.
of the patient population.
Ultra-High Efficiency Gradient Technology
SIGNA™ Pioneer includes novel Ultra High Efficiency (UHE) Gradient technology, a leap forward in the gradient technology curve, generating shorter TR and TE values to deliver speed and exceptional image quality.

Multiply your MR productivity
Speed and simplicity
SIGNA™ Pioneer 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.
SIGNA™ Pioneer'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™ Pioneer 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™ Pioneer substantially lowers setup cost. And with one of the lowest power consumption levels in the industry, it ensures you keep operating costs surprisingly low.
Lower Cost to Set up and Operate
Lower Cost to Site
Imagine siting a 3.0T system in a 1.5T siting space. SIGNA Pioneer is bringing 3.0T to places it has never been before. It has one of the smallest total siting footprints in the industry and is 25% smaller than conventional 3.0T systems.
Lower Cost to Operate
The SIGNA Pioneer is designed to use approximately 50% less power than conventional 3.0T wide bore designs through innovative ultra-high efficiency gradient technology. This means tremendous energy and operational cost savings while delivering high end 3.0T performance at the same time.

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.
