At ACC 2008 Siemens Will Showcase Its Portfolio of Cardiovascular Solutions
CHICAGO, March 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Healthcare (http://www.usa.siemens.com/healthcare) will demonstrate how its laboratory diagnostics, imaging and information technology (IT) solutions are helping to "Bring a New Rhythm to Cardiology Workflow," at the 57th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) from March 30 through April 1 at booth #3006.
Siemens will showcase the Artis zee(R) family of interventional imaging systems. With Artis zee systems, users can see vessel edges more precisely, and ensure proper stent positioning within seconds. The family's future- forward design also supports emerging therapeutic treatments. In addition, the Artis zeego(R), which recently received U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k) marketing clearance, features a multi-axis C-arm that employs robotic technology to extend imaging capabilities through virtually unrestricted positioning.
Also on display will be the cardiovascular version of the ACUSON X300(TM), an all-purpose ultrasound system that provides compact, portable color Doppler solutions for adult, pediatric, OR, EP, and interventional cardiology applications.
Siemens will also showcase syngo(R) Dynamics for multi-modality diagnostic image management and the Soarian(R) Cardiology cardiovascular information system. With Soarian Cardiology and syngo Dynamics, Siemens advances its trendsetting strategy of delivering end-to-end IT, imaging and workflow solutions. In a clinical environment where images are critical to the care of a patient, physicians need all images and data accessible at one workstation and available via a longitudinal clinical repository. This solution helps enable the goal of a seamless, optimized workflow for the care of the cardiovascular patient.
Siemens Users Share Best Practices
At the 2008 ACC, Siemens has asked a number of customers to present short success stories to conference attendees about how Siemens technology has helped them "Bring a New Rhythm to Cardiology Workflow." Topics will range from reducing door-to-balloon time with the company's innovative X-ray imaging systems to reducing the time it takes to generate a cardiology report with the company's image and information management solutions. Speakers will be at the Siemens booth (#3006) throughout the day on Sunday March 30 and Monday March 31. A complete schedule will be posted in the Siemens booth.
Enhancing the Cardiology Spectrum
Siemens will also display its full spectrum of cardiovascular
-- The Artis zee(R) is the next generation of interventional imaging
systems. See vessel edges more precisely, and ensure proper stent
positioning within seconds. Artis zee's future forward design also
supports emerging therapeutic treatments. In addition, the Artis
zeego(R) features a multi-axis C-arm that employs robotic technology
to extend imaging capabilities through virtually unrestricted
-- The world's first dual source CT, the SOMATOM Definition(TM), is
faster than every heartbeat, eliminating the need for beta blockers
and reducing radiation exposure by as much as 50 percent when compared
to traditional cardiac CT imaging. In addition to advanced imaging,
syngo(R) WebSpace represents the latest innovation in client-server
solutions for CT applications and offers real-time access to CT data
at a doctor's office or home, and even on the road through a network
-- By combining multimodality, diagnostic image management from syngo(R)
Dynamics with the nursing documentation, orders, and outcomes analysis
capabilities of Soarian Cardiology, the Soarian Cardiology and syngo
Dynamics solution provides powerful procedural and episodic care
reporting capabilities and a cardiovascular electronic patient record
(EPR) that supports the cardiac care process. With Soarian Cardiology
and syngo Dynamics, Siemens advances its trendsetting strategy of
delivering end-to-end IT, imaging and workflow solutions. In a
clinical environment where images are critical to the care of a
patient, physicians need all images and data accessible at one
workstation and available via a longitudinal clinical repository. This
solution helps enable the goal of a seamless, optimized workflow for
the care of the cardiovascular patient.
-- The combination of advanced speed and higher resolution images has
expanded the role of magnetic resonance imaging in cardiology.
syngo(R) Inline VF, new from Siemens, enables fully automatic
detection of heart contours and cardiac wall motion during image
acquisition. Now, this software can help physicians more accurately
assess cardiac function immediately after a scan.
-- True efficiency and integration are achieved with Siemens' cardiology
solutions, including c.cam(TM), Symbia SPECT, Symbia SPECT-CT, and
Biograph PET-CT systems. Siemens' MI solutions provide cardiologists
with functional information, such as wall motion, myocardial
perfusion, and in some cases, plaque characterization, as well as
morphological information, such as the presence of coronary
calcifications. Siemens will also highlight PETNET, which provides
biomarkers for clinical and preclinical PET imaging through PETNET's
SafetyNet(TM) international network of more than 45 manufacturing and
-- Siemens' latest advancements in cardiac ultrasound solutions to be
highlighted include the ACUSON X300(TM), an all-purpose ultrasound
system that provides compact, portable color Doppler solutions for
Adult, Pediatric, OR, EP and Interventional Cardiology applications
with exceptional clinical performance. Also featured at the conference
are the ACUSON P50(TM) hand-carried ultrasound system, the ACUSON
AcuNav(TM) ultrasound catheters, the ACUSON Sequoia(TM) ultrasound
system, and the ACUSON Cypress(TM) PLUS cardiovascular ultrasound
