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.
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.

Water-filtered infrared-A (wIRA) overcomes swallowing disorders and hypersalivation – a case report

Whether you call it effervescent, fizzy, or sparkling, carbonated water is making a comeback as a beverage. Aside from quenching thirst, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have discovered a new use for these "bubbly" concoctions that will have major impact on the manufacturer of the world's thinnest, flattest, and one most useful materials -- graphene.
As graphene's popularity grows as an advanced "wonder" material, the speed and quality at which it can be manufactured will be paramount. With that in mind,...
Physicists at the University of Bonn have managed to create optical hollows and more complex patterns into which the light of a Bose-Einstein condensate flows. The creation of such highly low-loss structures for light is a prerequisite for complex light circuits, such as for quantum information processing for a new generation of computers. The researchers are now presenting their results in the journal Nature Photonics.
Light particles (photons) occur as tiny, indivisible portions. Many thousands of these light portions can be merged to form a single super-photon if they are...
For the first time, scientists have shown that circular RNA is linked to brain function. When a RNA molecule called Cdr1as was deleted from the genome of mice, the animals had problems filtering out unnecessary information – like patients suffering from neuropsychiatric disorders.
While hundreds of circular RNAs (circRNAs) are abundant in mammalian brains, one big question has remained unanswered: What are they actually good for? In the...
An experimental small satellite has successfully collected and delivered data on a key measurement for predicting changes in Earth's climate.
The Radiometer Assessment using Vertically Aligned Nanotubes (RAVAN) CubeSat was launched into low-Earth orbit on Nov. 11, 2016, in order to test new...
A study led by scientists of the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) at the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science in Hamburg presents evidence of the coexistence of superconductivity and “charge-density-waves” in compounds of the poorly-studied family of bismuthates. This observation opens up new perspectives for a deeper understanding of the phenomenon of high-temperature superconductivity, a topic which is at the core of condensed matter research since more than 30 years. The paper by Nicoletti et al has been published in the PNAS.
Since the beginning of the 20th century, superconductivity had been observed in some metals at temperatures only a few degrees above the absolute zero (minus...
