This is Siemens’ AI-Pathway Companion introduced at the Radiological Society Of North America (RSNA) 2018 meeting this week. In this examples. A prostate cancer patient has all their data on a single time line that can be accessed by single clicks on the points to open reports, images, procedures or labs.

At the end of the time line it integrates AI driven clinical decision support that recommends the next course of action based on clinical guidelines. The guidelines cited can also be opened for review by the clinician.

This is a walk around of the new Spectrum Dynamics Veriton SPECT-CT nuclear imaging system introduced at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting. 

This is a walk around of an innovative new SPECT-CT nuclear imaging system shown at the Radiological Society Of North America (RSNA) 2018 meeting this week. It's CT system with comes in 16, 64 or 128 slice configurations. It has 12 SPECT detector robotic arms that automatically move toward the patient and use a sensor to stop a few millimeters from the skin to optimize photon counts and SPECT image quality. It also uses more sensitive CZT digital detectors, which allows either faster scan times, or use of only half the radiotracer dose of analog detector scans.
