About the tablet Learn about the tablet's features. Tab TitleTextStoring the Tablet The tablet should be stored in a cradle on the gantry when not in use. Tablet cradles can be found on both sides of the gantry next to the remote scan control cradle.Charging the Tablet The tablet should be charged by placing the tablet in the cradle attached to the gantry. The tablet will only charge when the system is powered on. The mobile workflow that the Scan&GO application supports, allows you to perform scan workflows in the examination room from the tablet without having to use the syngo Acquisition Workplace in the control room. The Scan&GO Approved workflow can vary depending on the type of scan being performed. The learning activity below will demonstrate the workflow of a scan without contrast. Select the link below to learn more about the Scan&GO Approved workflow. Scan&GO Approved Workflow Learn about the Scan&GO Approved Workflow. Checklist TitleChecklist TypeChecklist ContentStep 1-Start ScreenHTML Upon the patient's arrival, a few workflow tasks will need to be performed prior to conducting the scan. Let's review these workflow tasks and please note that all of them can be performed entirely through use of the tablet. You will begin by identifying the patient to be scanned. First, gather the tablet. The No patient registered screen is the first screen that is displayed after launching the Scan&GO examination workflow. Currently, there is no patient registered and no scan protocol selected. (1)Open the Patient Selection screen by tapping GO.  Step 2-Patient Selection ScreenHTML Then, you will identify the patient to be scanned from the Patient Selection Screen. On this screen you will see the HIS/RIS Hospital/Radiology Information System (RIS) has synchronized to the tablet displaying the list of patients to be scanned for the day. The patients are listed in chronological order according to their examination time. You can change the list order by tapping on the time, patient name, or requested procedure headlines. From this screen you can: A) Select a registered patient B) Examine an emergency patient C) Return to the start screen by selecting back D) Load the selected patient by tapping GO or tap the corresponding row. E) The Scheduler icon can be selected to go back to the Patient Selection screen Now that you have identified the scheduled patient you will greet the patient.      Step 3-Scan PreparationHTML Now that you have identified the scheduled patient from the Patient Selection screen: (1) Greet the patient (2) Utilizing your facilities procedure, identify the patient with two unique patient identifiers (Name and DOB) (3) Provide the patient with any necessary instructions prior to their scan such as, to remove any jewelry, glasses, and prostheses from the body region to be examined (4) Highlight the patient's name by tapping the name from the Patient Selection screen (5) select GO on the bottom right of the screen Step 4-Protocol SelectionHTML Now, that you have selected the scheduled patient from the Patient Selection screen you will continue by selecting the scan protocol. Note, if only one scan protocol is mapped to the requested procedure, the protocol is assigned automatically, the Protocol Selection screen is skipped and you are directed to select patient position. A scan protocol contains predefined scan parameters, reconstruction parameters, and processing parameters for a specific examination. Default Siemens protocols are available for each standard scan workflow: Protocol Selection Screen consists of the following areas: A) Adult protocols (standard, vascular, special protocols) B) Child protocols (standard, vascular, special protocols) C) Patient Model D) Protocol Preview Area E) Symbol identifies scan protocol can be completed with the tablet To select a protocol: (1) Select the corresponding examination icons on the left (Adult or Child) and (standard or vascular) (2) On the patient model, select a body region to be scanned. Upon selection, the body region will be highlighted and the matched protocols are displayed. Note: Special Protocols can also be selected if applicable. (3) Review the content of the protocol descriptions and select the most adequate protocol. (4) Select GO to assign the protocol to the patient.   Step 5- Patient PositioningHTML Now, that the protocol has been selected let's position the patient and move the table for the scan: (1)To position the patient on the table: 1a If the table is not in a convenient position for the patient to get on the table, use the RSC and foot to move the table for easer positioning of the patient. 1b Place the patient on the patient table in a comfortable position and iso-center. (2) Move the table to the topogram start position Using the keys on the RSC. There are four keys to move the table horizontally and vertically. (3) Patient Position Selection Confirm the Patient/position on the table matches the patient position that is display in the patient model area. (4) Tap GO to confirm the patient position and display the Ready to load Topogram screen.     Step 6-Topogram ScanHTML The Ready to Load Topogram screen appears (1) Activate the topogram scan- by selecting GO from the Ready to load Topogram screen (2) Perform the topogram scan by selecting Start from the RSC or control box. Note: During the acquisition of a topogram you can suspend the scan as soon as the relevant anatomy has been covered by selecting the Suspend key on the RSC or on the control box. Step 7-Tomogram ScanHTML Once the Topogram is acquired the Tomogram planning screen is displayed. A tomogram represents the cross-sectional view of a scanned body region. A tomogram is acquired for diagnostic purposes and is typically based on a preceding topogram scan, which helps you to define the scan range on the body region to be scanned. The tomogram planning screen comprises the following areas. If necessary, the scan range can be adjusted utilizing the following characteristics. If no adjustments are needed, select GO then select Start on the RSC or control box. (A) Scan Direction (B) Exposed area (C) Recon range of a scan range (D) Windowing (E) Repeat Topogram (F) Scan Browser (G) Current Table Position-designated by (H) Lateral Shutter (I) Range Shutter Step 8-Finalizing the ExaminationHTML Now that the scan tasks are complete you can finalize the examination. (1) Check the quality of the acquired tomogram images by utilizing the following features displayed on the screen: Hide Images Icon Slider Bar Arrows Windowing Check&GO button If you are satisfied with the quality of the image, tap Recon All to start the reconstruction. (2) Tap GO to close the patient. (3) Once the required scans are completed, you can unload the patient from the patient table. The Scan&GO workflow supports all routine scans.
