The new version of syngo.via supports treatment decision-making in oncology

  • Diagnostics software supports informed treatment decision-making and comprehensive treatment planning by compiling information from different imaging modalities
  • Early checking of treatment by means of a quantitative evaluation of the success of the treatment
  • Offline functionality for the interdisciplinary exchange of information

Cancer treatment is complex. The widely varying progressions of this disease require comprehensive diagnostics, an early check of treatment, and the exchange of information with colleagues. The new version of the diagnostics software syngo.via supports the treating physician in making decisions regarding treatment in oncology through a comprehensive portfolio of applications across imaging systems, treatments, and disciplines.

The new syngo.via – easier than ever

Discover a whole new user experience with syngo.via. You will love the refreshed look and feel and the intuitive operation. Also new: a Google-like search with the Patient Browser.

Imaging procedures play an important role in treatment planning. Multimodal image material not only provides information for a precise assessment of the tumor with regard to its position, morphology and metabolism, but it also forms the basis for radiotherapy planning. The application syngo.via RT Image Suite supports the radiotherapy oncologists in the demanding task of optimally using clinical images from various sources such as CT, MRT or PET-CT in order to contour the tumor to be irradiated and the surrounding tissue to be spared.

Another part of the oncology software portfolio is the application syngo.MR OncoCare. It allows an early, quantitative evaluation of the response of the tumor to the treatment. Thus, conclusions can be drawn about the success of the selected treatment method and, if necessary, this method can be adapted. Thus, the patient is spared from the continuation of ineffective treatment and the unnecessary costs associated with it.

In order to define the best possible treatment for each individual patient and successfully treat cancer, a wide variety of medical disciplines are drawn upon. Their representatives come together in regular, interdisciplinary meetings on this topic in so-called tumor boards. Syngo.MI Offline Oncoboard provides an IT solution in order to be able to present syngo.via findings of the various imaging procedures even on a standard PC and independently of a network connection.

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 right. syngo.via and the syngo.via based software options are not commercially available in all countries. Due to regulatory reasons its future availability cannot be guaranteed. Please contact your local Siemens organization for further details.

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...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
