The PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System) and RIS (Radiology Information System) solutions from Siemens Healthcare are enhanced by role-based portals.
Clinical staff access their tasks via portal applications that are specifically adapted to their function. The new Syngo Portal Transcriptionist, developed for the European market, contains all core functions needed by transcription offices for diagnostic reporting in radiology.
The portal clearly indicates and prioritizes the main tasks that need to be addressed, for example, pick up incoming cassette, listen to digitally dictated text, or transfer text, including comments by the radiologist, to the reporting template. With this approach, the portal provides seamless interaction between radiologists and transcriptionists, reducing breaks in their workflows.
In addition to syngo Portal Transcriptionist, syngo Portal Radiologist, and syngo Portal Referring Physician already support efficient workflow for diagnostic processes in all areas of radiology. Syngo Portal Radiologist is available worldwide and assists radiologists with their daily tasks and processes. Functions include, for example, options to check requests, evaluate images, read images, and sign reports. The Syngo Portal Referring Physician, which is available in Europe, supports the communication between referring physicians and radiology departments. For example, appointments can be scheduled directly from the referrer’s office or ward.
Syngo Portal Executive is currently under development and will, for example, simplify the planning of equipment use in the radiology department for hospital administrators and decision makers.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
Broadband rotational spectroscopy unravels structural reshaping of isolated molecules in the gas phase to accommodate water

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
