In this answer I wrote:

But while NEO's are fairly passive and only weakly propulsive (outgassing, photon pressure and thermal radiation effects) deep space spacecraft are active and substantially propulsive. They usually (always) have scheduled orbital correction maneuvers after flybys of planets (possibly even Titan, though I'm not sure about that).

So I thought I would ask.

Question: Did Cassini's Titan flyby's have scheduled TCM's afterwards? If so, were they usually used?

Possibly helpful (links in questions and answers):
