Get ready for advanced visualization to become common practice in the clinical routine when Siemens introduces syngo®.via at the 95th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) from November 29 to December 3 at McCormick Place (Booth #825, East Building/Lakeside Center, Hall D) in Chicago.
With syngo.via, Siemens’ new imaging software for multimodality reading of clinical cases, the company is placing special focus on reading efficiency through automated case preparation and structured case navigation across multiple specialties, including cardiology, oncology, and neurology. syngo.via uniquely integrates imaging devices and IT, such as Siemens MRI, CT, and PET-CT scanners and its new Picture Archiving and Communications System, syngo®.plaza . Siemens is demonstrating the benefits of this integration, which creates a comprehensive solution based on client-server technology.
“Delivering on market demand for improved image-reading tools in the clinical setting requires special capabilities that we are in the unique position to deliver,” explains Bernd Montag, CEO, Imaging and IT Division, Siemens Healthcare. “In order to develop syngo.via, Siemens tapped into its in-depth knowledge of disease-specific reading processes and was able to deliver a cutting-edge imaging technology that offers the latest clinical applications for both routine as well as advanced reading. Striving to profoundly change our customers’ approach to image reading, we want to help them fully leverage the diagnostic potential of our latest imaging technology.”
Case Navigator functionality is yet another way syngo.via supports structured workflow, by categorizing various workflow steps and aligning the proper images to each corresponding step. In an MRI whole-body case, the extensive image series is automatically structured into layouts and workflow steps – sorted according to body regions – reducing physician’s need to search and sort data and enabling advanced reading to begin as soon as the exam concludes. Furthermore, during the reading process, findings and measurements can be automatically tracked and listed with Findings Navigator, which allows users to effectively navigate between various findings with just one click. What’s more, the software automatically integrates the finding into a tailored and context-specific report , enabling users to access and share images, findings, and results quickly – on their terms.Innovative Imaging and IT Integration
Since it is crucial that radiologists and cardiologists have access to advanced reading applications on their existing PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) workstations, syngo.via has been designed to integrate with existing PACS and Radiology Information Systems of all major vendors. What’s more, in conjunction with Siemens’ newest corresponding PACS, syngo®.plaza, images do not need to be additionally sent from the imaging device since syngo.plaza drives the entire image routing process. Through no-click integration, images are auto-routed and automatically available on syngo.via, allowing users fast access to images and the appropriate syngo.via applications. Combined with a unified user-interface, this helps ensure a smooth transition between different applications and helps speed up the reading workflow.
Image results can now even be accessed through web portals so that, for example, referring physicians can view images and results anywhere5, further demonstrating how syngo.via transforms the entire workflow from planning to reading, therapy, and result sharing, bringing advanced reading into the clinical routine.Complete Product Lifecycle Support
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.1 syngo.via can be used as a standalone device or together with a variety of syngo.via-based software options, which are medical devices in their own rights.
3 The information about this product is being provided for planning purposes. The product is pending 510(k) review, and is not yet commercially available. 4 The disease-specific report created in syngo.via is not the final diagnostic report. The final diagnostic report is generated and signed off within the RIS. Archiving of diagnostic reports is the responsibility of the RIS. 5 Prerequisites include: Internet connection to clinical network, DICOM compliance, meeting of minimum hardware requirements, and adherence to local data security regulations.

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
