Siemens Extends Computer-Assisted Reading to Tagged Protocols

Siemens Medical Solutions announced the release of a new version of syngo Colonography PEV (Polyp Enhanced Viewing), an automated second reader tool for the visualization of lesions in the colon.
The solution helps radiologists to detect polyp-shaped objects between six millimeters and 25 millimeters in size and can now be used both in clean-prepped and solid-liquid tagged protocols. With the new version, syngo Colonography PEV delivers the
benefits of computer-assisted reading to a wider range of protocols commonly applied in CT colonography, including stool tagging agents. The PEV tool is seamlessly integrated into the syngo Colonography CT application.
Together with workflow-enhancing features such as Auto Polyp Measurements, the software reportedly improves reading accuracy as well as efficiency.
