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

30.11.2015

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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
