Software as a Service: Siemens provides CAD application for radiography via the Internet

02.03.2010
Siemens Healthcare is introducing a Software as a Service (SaaS) model for Digital Radiography.

syngo CXR CAD Subscription customers with digital radiography systems, such as Ysio and AXIOM Aristos can receive computer-aided detection (CAD) results via remote processing.

The CAD application, which processes radiographs to help doctors detect potential nodules in the lungs, can be subscribed to without adding hardware to the facility. With syngo CXR CAD Subscription, a separate workstation is no longer required to be installed in a clinic or practice, and offsite processing occurs on a Siemens-owned server. Users will have automatic access to syngo CXR CAD Subscription updates. The client software extracts a CAD Image Signature (CIS) from the image, which contains the necessary information for the CAD algorithm to process the image and produce CAD results.

The CIS does not contain any private information, such as patient name and date of birth. The CAD results are then transferred back to the clinic or practice, where they are allocated to the corresponding patient and stored in an application such as PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication System). This makes the CAD data available to the doctor as a “second reader” for the detection of lesions.

“syngo CXR CAD Subscription offers our customers a different deployment option for CAD, while simplifying their workflow since the results are processed off site,” comments Arthur Kaindl, CEO, Image and Knowledge Management, Siemens Healthcare. “This allows them to use innovative CAD technology in a convenient and flexible manner.”

“syngo CXR CAD Subscription is the next step toward a fully integrated, virtualized imaging environment,” said Dr. Peter Herzog, attending physician, Amper Kliniken AG in Germany.

At the European Congress of Radiology (ECR) 2010, Siemens Healthcare will introduce such a model for a CAD application.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
