C-Spine Dot Engine - A Workflow Demonstration for C-Spine Imaging

This e-Clip demonstrates the c-spine dot engine workflow.

Start by choosing your program to suit the clinical requirement of the patient. In the DOT patient view, the exam strategy can be selected to suit the patient's needs. The sequences in the exam Q will be adapted accordingly. The auto Align Scout is a 3D sequence that is automatically reconstructed into curved planar reformats or CPR's. Each scan is then reproducibly centered and the number of slices are adapted to cover the lateral extents of the spine. The Vertibrae will be automatically numbered and saved after confirmation. You can also choose to label the transversal images. Decisiones allow you to quickly adapt the scanning protocol as the images reveal further diagnostic information. The auto align snap and drop functionality assists in the positioning of transversal scans by following the orientation of the vertebral discs and bodies when slices are repositioned. Now that all the sequences have been planned, the examination will proceed without further intervention. Exam progress can be easily monitored via various visual cues such as green highlighting and progress timer.
