The new version of syngo.via supports treatment decision-making in oncology

17.06.2015
  • Diagnostics software supports informed treatment decision-making and comprehensive treatment planning by compiling information from different imaging modalities
  • Early checking of treatment by means of a quantitative evaluation of the success of the treatment
  • Offline functionality for the interdisciplinary exchange of information


Cancer treatment is complex. The widely varying progressions of this disease require comprehensive diagnostics, an early check of treatment, and the exchange of information with colleagues. The new version of the diagnostics software syngo.via supports the treating physician in making decisions regarding treatment in oncology through a comprehensive portfolio of applications across imaging systems, treatments, and disciplines.


The new syngo.via – easier than ever

Discover a whole new user experience with syngo.via. You will love the refreshed look and feel and the intuitive operation. Also new: a Google-like search with the Patient Browser.


Imaging procedures play an important role in treatment planning. Multimodal image material not only provides information for a precise assessment of the tumor with regard to its position, morphology and metabolism, but it also forms the basis for radiotherapy planning. The application syngo.via RT Image Suite supports the radiotherapy oncologists in the demanding task of optimally using clinical images from various sources such as CT, MRT or PET-CT in order to contour the tumor to be irradiated and the surrounding tissue to be spared.

Another part of the oncology software portfolio is the application syngo.MR OncoCare. It allows an early, quantitative evaluation of the response of the tumor to the treatment. Thus, conclusions can be drawn about the success of the selected treatment method and, if necessary, this method can be adapted. Thus, the patient is spared from the continuation of ineffective treatment and the unnecessary costs associated with it.

In order to define the best possible treatment for each individual patient and successfully treat cancer, a wide variety of medical disciplines are drawn upon. Their representatives come together in regular, interdisciplinary meetings on this topic in so-called tumor boards. Syngo.MI Offline Oncoboard provides an IT solution in order to be able to present syngo.via findings of the various imaging procedures even on a standard PC and independently of a network connection.

syngo.via can be used as a standalone device or together with a variety of syngo.via-based software options, which are medical devices in their own right. syngo.via and the syngo.via based software options are not commercially available in all countries. Due to regulatory reasons its future availability cannot be guaranteed. Please contact your local Siemens organization for further details.

Im Focus: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

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....
