Syngo iPilot supports physicians during interventions
Global Positioning Systems for cars search for the fastest and most practical way to reach a specific destination. The software function syngo iPilot from Siemens Medical Solutions (Med) works in a similar way: It supports the physician in guiding the catheter as smoothly as possible through the arteries during interventional procedures. During this time, syngo iPilot visualizes the two-dimensional fluoro image, which appears in real time on the monitor, and superimposes threedimensional reconstructions of the data displayed. The additional information supports the physician in his interpretation of vascular structures and allows him to navigate the catheter faster and with greater accuracy. This is of special advantage during neurological invasions of the brain known for its tortuous and irregular intracranial vessels.
By pushing a button, syngo iPilot displays two superimposed images on the monitor, the two-dimensional fluoro image and its three-dimensional reconstruction. The additional 3D information supports the physician in his activities. Interventions with syngo iPilot are safer than conventional procedures. At the same time, the physician is able to treat patients more quickly, allowing him to treat more patients within his schedule. Since the examination time per catheter intervention is reduced by new functions, the radiation dose decreases as well. The patient is also injected with less contrast agent.

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
