PACS Builds the Road to Reading Efficiency

Syngo.via by Siemens Healthcare.

June 11, 2010 - Reading efficiency is gaining ground by automating case preparation and structuring case navigation across specialties.

A new generation in advanced visualization and picture archive and communication (PACS) technologies were exhibited at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2010 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, Minn., June 3 to 6. Siemens Healthcare presented syngo.via1 and syngo.plaza, part of the syngo portfolio providing benchmarks for case preparation, image reading and archiving functionality.

Syngo.via, imaging software for multimodality reading of clinical cases, emphasizes reading efficiency through automated case preparation and structured case navigation across multiple specialties, including cardiology, oncology and neurology. It provides advanced visualization tools across the clinical spectrum to improve workflow efficiency and diagnostic confidence levels. Automated case preparation functionality automatically loads images into the appropriate application and sorts them into the corresponding layout – preprocessed according to the disease-specific requirements. This is designed to give physicians more time to focus on image reading and diagnosis.

Syngo.via has been designed to integrate with existing PACS and radiology information systems (RIS) of all major vendors. The client-server technology can be used in conjunction with the syngo.plaza PACS solution. When employed together, users are presented with direct, no-click access between the two technologies and a unified user-interface, allowing for a smooth transition between different applications that helps speed up the reading workflow.
