Cardiac Dot Engine - A Workflow demonstration

This e-Clip demonstrates the cardiac dot engine workflow.

The cardiac DOT engine provides many automation functionality's to help you with imaging the heart. In EMAR these include defining the maximum breath hold time for that patient. The language for auto voice commands and the DOT strategy. The isocenter localizer places the heart in the center of the magnetic field. You can get instructions an information in the guidance card to ensure the correct positioning is performed. You can use the auto align heart to define the measurement orientations of the heart. This will be the basis for all the cardiac plain automatic positioning throughout the examination. From the five anatomical points defined in the auto align heart, the long axis planes are automatically planned. Editing is possible and the positions of the long access gneisses will be used when needed for the entire examination. As in the long access planning, the short axis planes are defined in the define SAX step. The number of slices required to cover the left ventricle is automatically planned. Editing is possible if more slices are required. Editing of the Order of sequences is possible with simple drag and drop functionality. You can easily monitor exam progress via various visual cues such as green highlighting and progress timer. Cardiac settings of an opened protocol can be adapted while you are scanning. Simply select the tick boxes of the orientations to be measured and use the quick access to the protocol parameters to update them when needed. You can see what is happening at any point of time. For example, a green protocol is currently running.
