Radiologists to Learn Best Practices in Workflow at SIIM

Siemens Healthcare's Syngo.plaza is integrated with Syngo.via, and the PACS provides 2-D, 3-D and 4-D reading.

May 25, 2010 - Attendees will learn how to leverage radiology, cardiology and image-processing tools to improve workflow efficiency and enhance the delivery of patient care at the the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) 2010 Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, June 3 to 6.

SIIM also provides vendors with a platform to demonstrate their latest imaging informatics tools to physician user groups and prospective end users. On Friday, June 4, a new SIIM Vendor Tie-In Applied Learning Session, “Masterminding the Ultimate, Practical 3D Lab,” will feature Andreas Bermann, M.D., MBA, Product Manager, Syngo.via, Siemens Healthcare. He will discuss best practices on how radiologists, technologists and clinicians are using Syngo.via to optimize their imaging lab operations.

Siemens Healthcare will demonstrate at SIIM the next generation of advanced visualization and picture archive and communication system (PACS) technologies with Syngo.via and Syngo.plaza. Syngo.plaza comes integrated with Syngo.via, and is the first PACS from Siemens where 2-D, 3-D and 4-D reading come together in one place.
Syngo.via automatically identifies an obtained image based on the scanner that was used and then, in line with the case complexity, calls up the corresponding 2-D, 3-D or 4-D applications. Syngo.plaza also offers two viewing modes for users: a pre-configured intuitive interface and a customizable option that allows users to define and use the layouts they prefer.

This role-based view is designed to streamline the reading workflow and eliminate time wasted adjusting to strictly one-size-fits-all PACS technologies. The SmartSelect tool allows users to access their most frequently used functions directly in the diagnostic screen without taking their eyes off the images. Syngo.plaza’s system architecture gives clinicians access to the software in their facility or remotely. Syngo.plaza also offers users the ability to leverage their existing hardware components, functionality, and storage configurations, and providing them with scalable storage options.
