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.

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.
Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....
The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.
Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...
Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.
That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.
During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.
Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...
