New ultrasound breast analysis software from Siemens supports quick and detailed review of 3D and 2D breast ultrasound images

12.12.2012
Siemens Healthcare introduces syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis, a software application for offline review of images, volumes and clips produced with the Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) and the Acuson S2000 ultrasound system.

The software offers comprehensive image processing and reporting tools designed to improve breast ultrasound quality and workflow. It can be installed on existing computers in medical practices or hospitals, allowing physicians to analyze and process 2D and 3D ultrasound images inside or outside the reading room. The syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis software contributes to increasing Siemens' innovative power – a key component of the Healthcare Sector's Agenda 2013 two-year global initiative.



The syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis software is optimized for breast ultrasound workflow, making 2D review and 3D data analysis easy and comfortable. It offers image analysis and reporting with comprehensive tools for data review in one place and produces streamlined reports that support the American College of Radiology (ACR) BI-RADS® US Lexicon Classification Form1 – offering standardized reporting to allow faster, easier communication with referring physicians. Users can import DICOM data for review, editing as well as annotating and archiving of patient reports. In addition, the software provides standardized results that permit physicians to compare images with future or past findings.

The software application can be installed on a wide variety of hardware, including a laptop or desktop system, a department's local picture archiving and communication system (PACS), and/or vendor-neutral archives. It eliminates the need for additional computer hardware in the reading room, facilitating a tidy, organized work environment. The ability to use the software independent of the reading room gives users more variability regarding when and where to review examination results, helping to address today's requirements of increased work flexibility.

Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS)

The Acuson S2000 ABVS ultrasound scanner helps identify potential pathologies by acquiring automated full-field volumes of the breast, reducing exam times from 30 minutes to 15 minutes. It utilizes a high-frequency 14 MHz automated transducer that automatically sweeps over the breast, producing a 15 cm x 17 cm field of view (FOV) volume. In addition to streamlining workflow, this FOV reduces operator variability, leading to improvements in image quality and consistency. The multi-purpose ultrasound system is an ideal adjunct to mammography for women with different needs, from asymptomatic women to women with known dense breast tissue and/or a history of breast disease.

Launched in November 2011 by the Siemens Healthcare Sector, "Agenda 2013" is a two-year global initiative to further strengthen the Healthcare Sector's innovative power and competitiveness. Specific measures will be implemented in four fields of action: Innovation, Competitiveness, Regional Footprint, and People Development.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

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...
