Cardio-Thoracic Center of Monaco is the first Siemens European Reference Center

21.09.2010
Joint press release of Siemens and Monaco Cardio-Thoracic Center

Today, Siemens Healthcare and the Cardio-Thoracic Center of Monaco (CCM) signed a partnership contract in Monaco. Within the framework of this contract, CCM was nominated the first “Siemens European Reference Center Cardiovascular Medicine".

The strategic partnership is dedicated to the entire spectrum of cardiovascular medicine with the objective to develop innovative solutions for the treatment of patients suffering from cardiovascular diseases. The effects of Siemens medical technologies on the quality and efficiency of diagnosis and therapy are already today reflected at the CCM. In the future, the reference center will also serve as an international training and visitors' platform that demonstrates optimized clinical workflows and advanced multi-modality imaging to healthcare providers.

The Cardio-Thoracic Center of Monaco is a hospital of 50 beds specialized in the medical and surgical treatment of cardio-thoracic and vascular diseases. Recognized for its advanced treatment methods and modern equipment, the hospital is highly regarded in its field. Of international scope, the CCM treats patients from all over the world and allows physicians to access international fellowship programs – a training on the most modern diagnostic and therapeutic technologies.

Compared to more conventional medical institutions CCM foregoes department-specific structures. Since its creation in 1987, multidisciplinary cooperation has been at the heart of the CCM’s philosophy*. Today more than ever, the entire team of cardiologists, anesthesiologists and vascular surgeons, and works together to provide every single patient with the best diagnosis, therapy and medical outcome possible.

The objective of the partnership between CCM and Siemens is to establish and disseminate clinical know-how, optimize processes as well as create innovative treatment concepts. The upcoming projects will concentrate on clinical solutions that focus on individual disease patterns and include the entire clinical workflow. The Clinical Competence Center Cardiology of Siemens coordinates these direct interactions in the clinical field. The mutual findings will be incorporated in future developments by Siemens.

“To be nominated Siemens European Reference Center is not only an honor for us, it also allows us to advance the findings of our years of effort, that is in the diagnosis and therapy for cardiovascular disease and move on to new, extraordinary paths", says Professor Vincent Dor, CEO of CCM. “We are delighted that our excellent cooperation with Siemens for the past 25 years will be further strengthened by this strategic partnership.”

“The outstanding ranking CCM holds in the field of cardiovascular diseases is further emphasized by naming CCM a “Siemens European Reference Center Cardiovascular Medicine“, says Tom Miller, CEO of the Customer Solutions Division at Siemens Healthcare. “Professor Dor and the entire team of physicians at CCM treat the disease pattern of a patient across disciplines. The effective diagnostic and therapeutic process using imaging technologies and incorporating them into efficient processes plays a central role. Siemens has been successfully supporting CCM for more than 25 years with the company’s systems and know-how.”

Centre Cardio-Thoracique de Monaco (CCM): Since its forecast in 1984, physicians and managers of CCM have organized, with Siemens, their scheduled and anticipated medical equipment for this hospital devoted to treat all types of patients and diseases in the field of cardio-thoracic and vascular pathologies.

Two, of the main reasons of successes and satisfactions, were:

1. Since 1990, the realization of a hybrid angio-surgical room cath-lab,

2. Since 2002, the complement of non invasive diagnostic facilities by a “cardiologist driven” MR consol

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 48,000 employees worldwide and operates around the world. In fiscal year 2009 (to September 30), the Sector posted revenue of 11.9 billion euros and profit of around 1.5 billion euros.

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
