Siemens Demonstrates New Version of Multimodality Cardiology Image Management Solution at ACC 2008

Siemens Showcases Integrated Approach to Cardiovascular Image and

Information Management

CHICAGO, March 31 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Siemens Healthcare ( will demonstrate the enhanced capabilities of the latest version of its syngo(R) Dynamics(*) cardiology image management and reporting solution, at the 57th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of Cardiology (ACC) from March 29 through April.


syngo Dynamics, which is being showcased in the Siemens ACC booth (#3006), is a multi-frame review and archiving system using evidence-based reporting to improve the efficiency of clinical procedures. The solution offers immediate access to cardiology and ultrasound imaging studies and reports at diagnostic workstations from anywhere in the hospital, helping to improve workflow efficiency for all members of the care team who need to consult cardiology imaging studies. By creating a filmless and paperless environment in echocardiography, cath labs and ultrasound departments, syngo Dynamics enables healthcare facilities to evolve to the digital hospital model.

The newest version, syngo Dynamics v7, will offer enhanced evidence-based reporting, image compression, improved measurement capabilities, support for the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Displayable Report profile (DRPT), and tighter integration with hemodynamic systems from third-party companies.

"We have evaluated the needs of our syngo Dynamics users and have used their feedback to add more workflow-enhancing features into this new version of syngo Dynamics," said Ajit Singh, PhD, chief executive officer, Image & Knowledge Management, Siemens Healthcare. "With version 7.0, syngo Dynamics users benefit from tighter integration into the cath lab and from cross-industry support for relevant IHE Integration profiles. These enhancements validate syngo Dynamics as a context-sensitive, knowledge-driven image management tool that improves access to critical cardiology data."

Workflow Benefits

The IHE DRPT profile provides a methodology to create, finalize, archive, read, revise and distribute cardiology clinical reports from the department to the enterprise. With tighter integration to third-party hemodynamic systems, syngo Dynamics v7 users will not have to enter blood circulation data manually in the patient report. The patient's complete hemodynamic profile will be available to physicians as part of the report and this coupling could lead to improved decision making especially in the treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF), since cardiovascular physiology, such as blood flow, is an important component in the diagnosis of CHF. The diagnosis is further supplemented by a physical exam, echocardiography, electrophysiology, angiography and/or chest X-rays. As a multi-modality image management system, syngo Dynamics allows physicians to manage the studies of patients who may have CHF. According to recent reports, people older than 40 have a one-in-five chance of developing CHF. About 5 million people in the United States already have CHF and about 550,000 people develop CHF each year.

CVIS Integration

With automatically populated hemodynamic data on the syngo Dynamics workstation, cardiologists can review images and generate a report with the system's evidence-based Digital Structured Reporting module. Additional patient data is also available on the syngo Dynamics workstation through the Cardiovascular EMR component of the Soarian(R) Cardiology cardiovascular information system (CVIS), providing a complete continuum of care view of the patient.

Soarian Cardiology, which was the recipient of a 2007 Frost & Sullivan Excellence in Technology Award, features dynamic worklists and advanced documentation tools to help organize and establish priorities for required tasks and reduce reporting errors. In order to meet the increasing demand on hospitals and physicians to report both clinical outcomes and financial performance, Soarian Cardiology provides robust operational reporting and query wizards to create cross-patient, cross-modality reports, outcomes data and research studies. Also available is the Soarian Workflow Engine that automates aspects of the healthcare delivery process to improve compliance with policies and standards of care, eliminate communication breakdowns, and synchronize the interdisciplinary team to help deliver an integrated plan of care.

The integration between syngo Dynamics and Soarian Cardiology allow physicians to monitor and manage a complete patient interaction, allowing them to evolve from procedure-oriented to a patient-centric approach. Siemens will demonstrate this integrated approach to cardiology image and information management in the Cardiovascular Solutions Area of the ACC booth.
