With its new diagnostic reporting software for breast imaging in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), Siemens Healthcare provides radiologists with new opportunities in Women’s Health.
The syngo Brevis Workplace is a flexible hardware and software solution that is easy to use while simultaneously providing efficient diagnostic reporting. To establish a diagnosis, the physician can display ultrasound or radiography images in addition to magnetic resonance images, compare them, and process them individually, all on a single screen. The syngo Brevis Workplace enables almost fully automated reporting, elastic image correction of data should the patient move, color display of dynamic image information, and calculation of lesion volume. Diagnostic workflows are further optimized because the syngo Brevis diagnostic report is based on the BI-RADS classification. This Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) is a classification of breast lesions for diagnostic reporting accepted worldwide, and was created by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The syngo Brevis Biopsy Workplace offers the physician an intuitive, fast, and precise means for planning and performing biopsies. The software automatically calculates the coordinates of the breast tissue to be removed. All components work together so that the intervention can be performed easier and faster than before, an advantage both to the patient and examining physician.
The new software solutions were developed by MeVis in close cooperation with Siemens. They are part of the Magnetom Espree - Pink dedicated MR breast scanner, but are also available for all other systems of the Magnetom family from Siemens. “In addition to the well-known high diagnostic reliability of our software applications, this specialized MRI solution is characterized by an unusually high clinical process efficiency,” said Dr. Carl J.G. Evertsz, CEO of MeVis Medical Solutions AG. “The new syngo BreVis diagnostic reporting software represents a major step toward real multi-modality diagnostics.”
The Siemens Healthcare Sector is one of the world's largest suppliers to the healthcare industry and a trendsetter in medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics, medical information technology and hearing aids. Siemens is the only company to offer customers products and solutions for the entire range of patient care from a single source – from prevention and early detection to diagnosis, and on to treatment and aftercare. By optimizing clinical workflows for the most common diseases, Siemens also makes healthcare faster, better and more cost-effective. Siemens Healthcare employs some 49,000 employees worldwide and operates in over 130 countries. In fiscal year 2008 (to September 30), the Sector posted revenue of 11.2 billion euros and profit of 1.2 billion euros.

A Challenging European Research Project to Develop New Tiny Microscopes
28.03.2017 | Technische Universität Braunschweig
The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
