The Institute for Advanced Biomedical Imaging, scheduled to open this spring, will house two Siemens computed tomography (CT) systems and one positron emission tomography-CT (PET-CT) system, replacing the hospital's CT scanner currently in place. Key to the long-term development of this vision is an integrated radiology information system (RIS) and picture archive communication system (PACS) solution that uses the same syngo(R) architecture as the imaging modalities leading to data reconciliation and consistency.
As part of the initial agreement, Siemens will provide the following
technologies to National Jewish:
-- SOMATOM Definition(TM) - With a dual X-ray tube and dual-detector
design, the Definition routinely provides images with superior
temporal resolution that freeze the motion of the heart, and enjoys
twice the speed and twice the power of single-source systems.
-- MAGNETOM(R) Avanto - Offering comprehensive metastasis evaluation,
whole CNS imaging, and visualization of vascular diseases, the Avanto
is the first Siemens system to fully incorporate Tim(R) (Total imaging
matrix) technology and the first whole body surface coil concept.
-- SOMATOM Sensation(R) 64 - Provides breathtaking image sharpness and
clarity combined with the simplicity and speed of seamless integrated
-- syngo(R) Imaging and syngo(R) Workflow - In addition to the
integration with CAD applications, syngo Imaging also allows for fast
and easy installation of syngo Studio, the main 2D image reading
