Siemens Healthcare introduces version VA30 of its routine 3D and advanced reading software syngo.via, featuring new applications and functionalities that further streamline and accelerate the syngo.via experience.
syngo.via General Engine is a new package of highly automated and standardized applications. As depicted here, the feature "Anatomical Range Presets" displays a quick, precise, optimal view of selected anatomical regions. The syngo.via Advanced Reporting tool, part of the syngo.via General Engine, helps radiologists create clear, well-structured reports for the referring or follow-up physicians.
The latest innovation is the syngo.via General Engine, a new package of highly automated and standardized applications. "Anatomical Range Presets," for example, identifies individual regions of the body on images captured using computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), aligns the image projections accordingly, then selects detailed views to facilitate case preparation. For customers, this means greater efficiency and enables higher diagnostic confidence.
Siemens is making syngo.via more anatomically intelligent to support radiologists and medical technology personnel in their routine workflows. The software "understands" human anatomy and prepares the images for diagnostic reading. Syngo.via VA30 features "Automatic Rib Labeling," for example, which automatically identifies and labels the ribs in CT scans. Until now, radiologists had to identify the ribs manually. Given the unique shape of the ribs, this can be time-consuming and lead to errors, especially in complex diagnostic environments such as oncology.
Anatomical intelligence is also a hallmark of the new syngo.via General Engine software package with which customers can upgrade their software. The package includes the "Anatomical Range Presets" feature, which displays a quick, precise, optimal view of selected anatomical regions. To facilitate diagnoses, users often create such views manually, performing the multi-step process of selecting the relevant area, aligning the image projections accordingly, and editing the detailed view. This takes time, requires anatomical expertise, and is error-prone. The new application from Siemens largely automates these steps. This delivers a consistent quality of the resulting anatomical views and snapshots that does not depend on the skill of the specific user. Using a technology akin to facial recognition in digital photography, syngo.via is able to recognize shoulders, spines, hips, etc. in clinical images and optimize how they are displayed in their anatomical environment. The presets are initially available for specific anatomical regions in CT and MRI images.
Following an examination, the radiological diagnostic report plays a key role in the treatment of the patient. The syngo.via Advanced Reporting tool, part of the syngo.via General Engine, helps radiologists create clear, well-structured reports for the referring or follow-up physicians. Standardized templates make it easier to create reports but can still be customized to individual needs, and findings from multiple examinations can be consolidated into a single report. In the past, multiple diagnoses meant having different documents pertaining to a single case. Now, the diagnostic report reflects the patient's entire disease profile. This makes it much easier for doctors to form a comprehensive assessment of the patient's condition, which helps to improve the quality of treatment.
The Siemens Healthcare Sector is one of the world's largest suppliers to the healthcare industry and a trendsetter in medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics, medical information technology and hearing aids. Siemens offers its customers products and solutions for the entire range of patient care from a single source – from prevention and early detection to diagnosis, and on to treatment and aftercare. By optimizing clinical workflows for the most common diseases, Siemens also makes healthcare faster, better and more cost-effective. Siemens Healthcare employs some 52,000 employees worldwide and operates around the world. In fiscal year 2013 (to September 30), the Sector posted revenue of 13.6 billion euros and profit of 2.0 billion euros. For further information please visit: http://www.siemens.com/healthcare

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...
