Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve heard that many practices needed to change their TI settings. What is this and how do I make sure I am compliant?
Case Studies
TI stands for Thermal Index. This reflects the potential for heat-induced bioeffects. Thermal index for soft tissue (TIs) should be used during the first 8 weeks after conception (10 weeks gestational age) and Thermal index for bone (TIb) should be used after once ossification becomes evident (after 10 weeks gestation). Thermal index values should be monitored.

Contact your applications specialist for specific information about your equipment.
