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: Data use draining your battery? Tiny device to speed up memory while also saving power

The more objects we make "smart," from watches to entire buildings, the greater the need for these devices to store and retrieve massive amounts of data quickly without consuming too much power.

Millions of new memory cells could be part of a computer chip and provide that speed and energy savings, thanks to the discovery of a previously unobserved...

Im Focus: An energy-efficient way to stay warm: Sew high-tech heating patches to your clothes

Personal patches could reduce energy waste in buildings, Rutgers-led study says

What if, instead of turning up the thermostat, you could warm up with high-tech, flexible patches sewn into your clothes - while significantly reducing your...

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...

Im Focus: Topological material switched off and on for the first time

Key advance for future topological transistors

Over the last decade, there has been much excitement about the discovery, recognised by the Nobel Prize in Physics only two years ago, that there are two types...
