HyperCube expands the capabilities of 3D imaging, allowing you to significantly reduce scan times and eliminate artifacts such as motion and aliasing by reducing the phase field of view without the presence of aliasing artifacts.


With HyperSense, we can obtain images with significantly fewer samples, thereby reducing all the overall scan time without compromising spatial resolution or image quality. HyperSense is not dependent on coil geometry and is less sensitive to image artifacts or SNR loss at higher accelerations when compared to conventional parallel imaging techniques.

HyperSense is 510(k) pending with FDA. Not available for sale in the United States and may not be commercially available in other regions.

The secret of MAGiC lies in its unique ability to make possible multiple image contrasts in a single scan. MAGiC delivers enhanced clinical flexibility by freeing up time for advanced imaging. MAGiC goes beyond the routine, providing complementary parametric data for a more complete picture. Image contrast can be changed by applying simple adjustments after acquisition.


With READYView being directly available on the MR Operator console, it accelerates workflow and reading readiness by eliminating time consuming post processing steps.


cmr42 is a comprehensive cardiovascular post processing solution that uses automated algorithms to assess tissue charaterization, mapping, flow and function.


NeuroQuant automatically segments and measures volumes of brain structures and compares these volumes to norms. This information helps make a diagnosis and follow the progression of a disease.

Raise your MR performance to new heights with groundbreaking technology

Designed to overcome barriers, SIGNATM Artist's cutting edge platform makes it the most versatile, adaptable and powerful 1.5T system available from GE. Now feet-first, whole-body coverage is made easy. Dynamic yet insightful, the SIGNATM Artist is MR built to work for you.

Total Digital Imaging (TDI)

The SIGNATM Artist offers startling
advances in imaging and a total imaging win with TDI.

  • GE's Direct Digital Interface (DDI) employs an independent analog-to-digital converter to digitize inputs from each of up to 128 RF channels, eliminating unnecessary noise enhancement.
  • Digital Micro Switching (DMS) technology represents a revolutionary advance in RF coil design by replacing analog blocking circuits with intelligent Micro Electro-Mechanical Switches (MEMS).

16 Channel Shoulder and T/R Knee Coils

The 16 channel shoulder coil is a novel anatomy-adaptive coil design that provides efficient positioning workflow and outstanding patient comfort. The flexibility of the anterior paddle makes it possible to get closer to the patient to maximize SNR and improve imaging outcomes.
The 16 channel transmit/receive (T/R) knee coil delivers high-resolution knee imaging. The T/R design provides improved B1 performance with the potential for higher resolution results, lower SAR and elimination of image backfolding. The larger diameter accommodates a wider range of patients, allows for simple patient setup and elevates patient comfort. The new design supports image acceleration in all directions for faster and enhanced clinical outcomes.
The 70cm wide bore design takes the fear out of MR. The expansive diameter, soft lighting and soothing fans help ease patient anxieties and concerns. The wider table design sits lower to the ground, enabling easier patient positioning. Lightweight and adaptable coil designs conform gently to a patient’s anatomy, elevating the patient experience. SIGNA™ Artist, designed with patient comfort in mind.

eXpress Dockable Table

The SIGNATM Artist's eXpress table, with a memory foam surface, delivers feet-first or head-first imaging for everyone. With its detachable egress, you never have to worry about how quickly you can exit the MR suite. And with IntelliTouch positioning, just touch the edge of the table to position your patients.


In addition to accommodating larger patients, full 50x50x50cm FOV in a 70cm wide bore allows you to properly image off-center anatomy such as shoulders and hips. The SIGNATM Artist's phenomenal homogeneity enables our largest FOV ever.


deFINE takes the results of SIGNATM Artist to the next level by enhancing the image appearance with integrated inline optimizable settings. These settings can be generated for each individual sequence or for the entire exam.
