How it Works

STAGE: Strategically Acquired Gradient Echo

Features & Benefits

Average 40% Faster Brain MRIs

SpinTech’s rapid image sequencing and processing reduces acquisition time for comprehensive brain imaging by an average of 40%, increasing throughput and improving patient experiences.

Enhanced Visualization & Quantitative Data

STAGE can aid clinicians in identifying and quantifying biomarkers for neurological disorders such as stroke, TBI, Parkinson’s, MS
and dementia.



Increased Throughput = Increased Revenue

With an average of 40% increased neuro imaging throughput, you can see over $500k in new annual revenues for the average MRI unit, and the increase in scan quality and best-in-class technology can potentially drive referrals for new cases.

Lower Costs

STAGE software seamless integrates into your existing equipment, eliminating high capital expenses associated with upgrading your magnets.

Seamless Workflow Integration

The system uses a black box approach to integrate with virtually any existing system and MRI manufacturer. After processing, STAGE automatically sends 16 data-rich, standardized outputs to your existing PACS or database along with a summary report.

Cross-Platform, Standardized Data

STAGE is compatible with most manufacturers existing equipment, providing not only accurate, repeatable results, but also rich, standardized datasets ideal for developing AI and research.
