With this generation, surgical workflows have been optimized through numerous improvements. These include, for example, the new ergonomic monitor trolley and the easy user interface. Also an intelligent algorithm automatically adjusts and optimizes the image quality. All systems are suitable for broad clinical applications: in orthopedics, trauma and neurosurgery as well as gastroenterology, vascular and cardiac surgery or in urology.
The new generation of the Arcadis C-arm family includes such systems as Varic, Avantic and Orbic (Orbic 3D) that have been successfully used in their initial version in hospitals around the world. These mobile C-arms of Siemens are based on syngo, an intuitively operated Siemens software platform that facilitates clinical workflows in many ways. For example, with syngo it is possible to view images from other modalities, store acquired images to archives or external storage media such as CD, DVD or USB and select up to 200 default examination programs. To continuously improve the clinical workflow, the user interface integrates a basic menu to accelerate system operation and an extended menu for more complex requirements. Different automatic image algorithms that regulate brightness, contrast and dose, provide the physician with optimal image quality.
System operation is further facilitated by an ergonomically optimized and easily manageable monitor trolley with monitor screens that can be adjusted in height and rotated by 180 degrees in the horizontal.
For surgical navigation, the physician is provided with innovative navigation technology.
The NaviLink interface is available for three-dimensional navigation and NaviVision for an integrated navigation platform. In this way, intraoperative images of the Arcadis system are combined with high-precision, surgical navigation systems.

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...
