This Job Aid reviews Tim Planning Suite (Set-n-Go) workflow for multi-slice measurements with multiple table moves.

Tim Planning Suite with Set-n-Go Numaris X - Job Aid Tim Planning Suite with Set-n-Go – Numaris X This Job Aid reviews workflow to facilitate planning and evaluating multi-slice measurements. Group individual measurements or combine examinations with multiple table moves using Tim Planning Suite (Set-n-Go). Prerequisites for Set-n-Go Protocols • Distortion Correction – On (Default) o Automatically set to 2D Distortion Correction • (e.g., Resolution > Filter Image Parameter Card) • Positioning Mode – ISO Mode must be selected • Sagittal and Coronal Slices o Hints: Required for Composing to work • Angle – Don’t Angle ±1° • Overlap – Minimum of 50 mm required Dot Cockpit – Create a Set-n-Go Protocol (e.g., Whole Spine) 1.

[+] Adds a step to end of list ii. [-] Deletes current step c. Table Position – table position where sequence is measured i. H – Moves Table in Head Direction in mm ii. F – Moves Table in Feet Direction in mm iii. Note – Zero point defined by initial table position of first measurement of a se- ries block d. Inline Composing – combines all images from multiple table moves (steps) for an orien- tation or weighting into a complete image (e.g., C, T, and L spine combined) e. Normalize – Off (Default) – reduces image intensity variation for whole body diffusion measurements. (e.g., used for composed whole body diffusion) f. Save Non-normalized –Saves Normalized and Non-normalized images to Patient Browser g. Composing Function – select an option i. Spine – based on Bone Structure, for Composing Spine Images ii. Angio – based on Vessel Structure, for an Overview of Vessels iii. Adaptive – based on elastic matching • Corrects b0 induced inhomogeneities in image areas beyond magnetic homogeneity volume. (e.g., Abdomen, Long Bones) iv. Diffusion – corrects phase encoding direction shifts caused by different adjust- ment parameters for steps in a set-n-go protocol. (e.g., Axial Whole-Body Diffu- sion) h.
