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 Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
