At SIIM 2011 Siemens Showcases Imaging IT Solutions for Driving Greater Value in Radiology and Other Specialties

WASHINGTON, June 2, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Siemens Healthcare (NYSE: SI) will showcase its portfolio of imaging information technology (IT) and workflow management solutions at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2011 Annual Meeting from June 2-5, 2011, (booth 825) in the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center, Washington, D.C. Across the country, radiologists are facing increased pressure to provide faster, more accurate diagnoses for patients; higher value with greater coverage for referring physicians; and simpler tools that put more information and capabilities at their fingertips — making them more productive. These challenges can be satisfied in large part by turning to Siemens syngo solutions for image management and advanced visualization.


The imaging IT solutions on display at SIIM include advanced visualization to help share information with colleagues and clinical partners across the healthcare enterprise; picture archiving and communications system (PACS) that converges 2D, 3D and 4D imaging in one location; an enterprise radiology information system (RIS) with business intelligence, workflow management and critical results management tools; private cloud-based disaster recovery, and new mobile and Web-based image and report distribution.

syngo®.via(1) for advanced visualization, providing innovative and highly sophisticated 2D, 3D and 4D multimodality visualization of clinical cases. It features a thin-client/server architecture, making it easier to access information anywhere(2), from any modality(2), and share that information with colleagues and clinical partners across the enterprise, enabling improved quality in patient care.

Siemens will also showcase syngo.via Web Options, which provides image access from anywhere(2), securely, even from outside the hospital using:

  • syngo.via WebViewer(3) - For fast reading and excellent image viewing capabilities, diagnostic reading of images with a Web browser and general image viewing for non-diagnostic purpose on a selection of mobile devices.
  • syngo.via WebReport(4) - Secure, faster access to viewing of reports and images by physicians and referring physicians, accessed immediately, from anywhere. It can be launched from a Web browser or on a selection of mobile devices for non-diagnostic purpose.

As the first agile PACS solution from Siemens where 2D, 3D and 4D reading come together in one place, syngo.plaza is intended to display, process, read, report, communicate, distribute, store, and archive digital medical images, including mammographic images. As a digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM)-based PACS, syngo.plaza is the central image management system in radiology for exchanging images and information with connected systems. syngo.plaza offers a highly scalable PACS that can cover a wide range of scenarios from a single workplace to an enterprise edition.

The Siemens RIS solution, syngo Workflow, provides a paperless solution that drives the radiology workflow from order entry to report distribution. syngo Portal Radiologist, an extension of syngo Workflow, is a web-based module that is specifically built to meet the radiologist's daily needs such as protocol studies, report creation based on radiological images, and reports sign off. The solution also features syngo Portal Executive, a web-based business intelligence tool that helps track the productivity and turnaround times of the facilities personnel and connected modalities. In order to achieve higher productivity, syngo Workflow provides task-related work lists that are based on the individual's role within the group. With one application, a multitude of different tasks and workflow steps are covered, like critical test result management, conferencing and peer review.

Siemens Healthcare's imaging IT solutions enable customers to achieve quality and efficiency improvements in the imaging workflow, while facilitating operational cost reductions.
