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

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: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
