Assume a general practice conducts 25 exams per day. Typically 4-5 are of the brain. With GOBrain3 brain exams can be potentially doubled to 8-10 cases a day due to the reduced scan time.

Improve patient throughput and achieve potential additional revenue

As reimbursements for core brain exams have dropped by 45%* in the last three years increased productivity is crucial. With GOBrain a diagnostic brain exam can be completed in 5 minutes – potentially doubling throughput.

Go for consistent results, efficiently

Tailor and manage protocols to your requirements and implement your standards of care directly at the scanner.

Ensure consistent image quality across all patients, users and conditions with unique automation techniques.


Stay on time by reducing variations in abdominal exam durations to under a minute4.

Abdominal exam times can vary from 9-17 minutes depending on technologist experience4. This could lead to 1 ½ hours of unplanned overtime per day5.
