Below we share protocol manuals for all UW validated GE CT scanner models. We recommend downloading and implementing the highest version number provided for your specific scanner. Between version releases we implement societal recommendations and advisory board suggestions, so the latest version represents what we believe are the best CT protocols. Within each manual, you will find a detailed listing of the changes between each version.
Reach out to your GE application’s specialist if you want to implement more than a few protocols. Manual entry of all our CT protocols (~300) for a single scanner would take you roughly 16 hours and mistakes could lead to poor quality studies or radiation issues. GE can provide you with a USB stick allowing you to instantly upload our protocols to your scanner using the step-by-step instructions listed in the UW Protocol Restore Manual. Additionally, GE now offers the Imaging Protocol Manager (IPM™) tool. It has a cloud based “share” feature allowing you to download these protocols directly onto your scanner.
Note, to properly program the “scout” phase of our CT protocols, please refer to this manual Scout Ranges And Anatomical Landmarks.
