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.

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...
