Modular syngo.plaza as a comprehensive solution – even for enterprise radiology


RSNA 2015 in Chicago: Gebäude Süd, Ebene 3, Halle A, Stand 4136

  • Version VB20 of syngo.plaza is designed to optimize usability and speed in reading and reporting.
  • New features of syngo.plaza 3D+1 improve consistency and automate workflows.
  • Vendor-neutral archiving (VNA) options1 from departmental to enterprise level are now available.

Syngo.plaza not only enables the everyday routine reading of 3D images: syngo.plaza 3D+ now also includes Siemens Healthcare’s automatic landmarking and parsing of human anatomy (Alpha) technology with the features AutoViews and Anatomical Range Presets. They speed up imaging workflows by automating and standardizing reconstructions and views as well as improving consistency in image reconstruction and presentation.

As radiology department caseloads increase with the aging population, institutions need to stay competitive with their reading and reporting performance. A long-lasting powerful Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) that is expandable for the future is inevitable.

To improve clinics' imaging workflows, images must be available across departmental boundaries and with mobile access on tablets. The new version VB20 of Siemens Healthcare's syngo.plaza will offer reading and reporting, viewing, and archiving modules for full entrepreneurial flexibility. It is premiering at the congress of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) in Chicago, U.S.

Syngo.plaza version VB20's new user interface is designed to enhance intuitive reading by reducing descriptive elements to the essentials and providing a cleaner button style and navigation tool area. An optimized color scheme also helps users focus on relevant image information. Resolution-independent user interface scaling leads to increased ease of use, as all navigation elements are automatically scaled equally to provide intuitive reading and a stabilized image area. Comparing images within a single study as well as with previous examinations is easier with syngo.plaza, with its new features series synchronization and synchronize zoom. It is also designed to increase productivity and decreases report turnaround time. Syngo.plaza not only enables the everyday routine reading of 3D images: syngo.plaza 3D+1 now also includes Siemens Healthcare's automatic landmarking and parsing of human anatomy (Alpha) technology with the features AutoViews and Anatomical Range Presets. They speed up imaging workflows by automating and standardizing reconstructions and views as well as improving consistency in image reconstruction and presentation.

To fully support radiology workflows, a PACS covers reading, reporting, and viewing as well as archiving. Today medical image archives are growing exponentially – as are heterogeneous radiological IT system environments and the challenges of managing multi-site environments for large clinical enterprises. That's why Siemens Healthcare now offers dedicated archiving solutions, from radiological vendor-neutral DICOM archiving to enterprise-wide solutions1. These allow users to consolidate data from clinical and radiological departments into one central repository.

1 These options are realized by seamless interfaces to other Siemens or 3rd party products.

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...
