Siemens introduces first-of-its-kind technologies in India at Medanta-The Medicity

04.08.2009
Siemens Healthcare collaborates with Dr. Naresh Trehan’s Medanta-The Medicity to provide affordable high-end healthcare delivery solutions

Siemens Healthcare has entered into one of the largest technology partnerships in India to provide innovative imaging & IT solutions to Medanta–The Medicity, an upcoming 1,250 bed multi-super specialty healthcare institute in Gurgaon.

With this endeavor, Medanta will be the first institute to deploy a range of first-of-its-kind technologies while providing care at an affordable cost. Siemens Healthcare has received one of the largest contracts in the private healthcare industry in India from Medanta-The Medicity. Founded by eminent cardiac surgeon, Dr. Naresh Trehan, Medanta is one of India’s largest multi-super specialty institutes, with the guiding principles of providing affordable medical services to patients with care, compassion and commitment. Spread across 43 acres, Medanta includes a research center, medical and nursing school and will have over 1,250 beds, 300 critical care beds and 45 operation theatres catering to over 20 specialties.

Siemens Healthcare is proud to be associated with Medanta and is committed to support Dr. Trehan in his vision of providing the highest standard of medical care to India. At Medanta, in addition to installing hi-end imaging products recently introduced in India, Siemens will also launch a range of products for the first time in India. This includes SOMATOM Definition Flash CT scanner, Artis Zeego cathlab, ACUSON SC2000 ultrasound system and Biograph mCT, a PET.CT scanner.

Mr. D Ragavan, Sector CEO for Healthcare, South Asia Cluster, Siemens Ltd. informs, “Siemens shares a strong relationship with Dr. Trehan and with this collaboration, we have strengthened our partnership further. Dr. Trehan’s ambition is to build Medanta–The Medicity as one of the topmost facilities in this part of the globe. To realize this vision he needs the world’s best technologies and we are installing our latest and top of the line technologies in Medanta, which will help the clinicians and the patients.”

Dr. Naresh Trehan, Chairman & Managing Director, Medanta–The Medicity said, “It is my vision to build an institute in India, which matches the highest standards of healthcare delivery across the world. At Medanta, technology and innovation will be the key drivers for providing high-end services and at the same time keeping patient cost low, so I welcome our partnership with Siemens.”

With the SOMATOM Definition Flash, Medanta-The Medicity is introducing a CT scanner in India that will set new standards regarding speed and dose reduction. Its fastest scanning speed in CT enables for example complete scans of the entire chest region in just 0.6 seconds. Thus, patients are no longer required to hold their breath during the exam the way they had in the past. At the same time, the SOMATOM Definition Flash operates at an extremely reduced radiation dose. For example, a spiral heart scan can be performed with less than 1 millisievert (mSv), whereas the average effective dose required for this purpose usually ranges from 8 mSv to 40 mSv.

The new Artis zeego angiography system introduces unprecedented flexibility in catheter labs and operating rooms. The industrial robot technology integrated in Artis zeego allows the physician to move the C-arm to almost any position around the patient.

ACUSON SC2000 is an ultrasound system, which introduces a technology called “Echo in a Heart Beat” for the first time in India, which delivers full-volume images of the heart with every heartbeat. Siemens will also install Biograph mCT, the world’s first molecular CT that allows high definition PET.CT imaging and patient comfort, while scanning in shortest possible time.

Siemens Ltd. is the flagship listed company in India. Siemens in India, which comprises 20 legal entities, is a leading provider of industry and infrastructure solutions with a business volume aggregating about Rs 11,800 crore, as on September 2008. It operates in the core business areas of Industry, Energy and Healthcare. It has nation-wide Sales and Service network, 19 manufacturing plants, a network of around 500 channel partners and employs about 17,200 people.

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.

Medanta is one of India’s largest multi-super specialty institutes located in the national capital region of New Delhi - Gurgaon, India. Founded by eminent cardiac surgeon, Dr. Naresh Trehan whose vision was to bring to India the highest standards of medical care along with clinical research, education and training. The Institute is governed under the guiding principles of providing medical services to patients with care, compassion and commitment. Medanta is spread across 43 acres, which also includes a research center, medical and nursing school; it will have over 1,250 beds with 45 operation theatres catering to over 20 specialties. Medanta houses six centers of excellence, Page 3 of 3 which will provide medical intelligentsia, cutting–edge technology, state-of-the-art infrastructure with highly integrated and comprehensive information system. Medanta will bring together an outstanding pool of doctors, scientists and clinical researchers, to foster collaborative, multidisciplinary investigation, inspiring new ideas and discoveries and translating scientific advances more swiftly into new ways of diagnosing and treating patients and preventing disease. A one-of-its-kind facility across the world, which through research will integrate modern and traditional forms of medicine to provide accessible and affordable healthcare.

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...

Im Focus: Using graphene to create quantum bits

In the race to produce a quantum computer, a number of projects are seeking a way to create quantum bits -- or qubits -- that are stable, meaning they are not much affected by changes in their environment. This normally needs highly nonlinear non-dissipative elements capable of functioning at very low temperatures.

In pursuit of this goal, researchers at EPFL's Laboratory of Photonics and Quantum Measurements LPQM (STI/SB), have investigated a nonlinear graphene-based...
