Application enables fast, confident review of 2-D, 3-D breast ultrasound images

syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis Siemens Healthcare

January 2, 2013 — Siemens Healthcare announced the release of syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis, a software application for offline review of images, volumes and clips produced with Siemens’ Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) and the Acuson S2000 ultrasound system. The software application offers comprehensive image processing and reporting tools designed to improve breast ultrasound quality and workflow, and can be installed on existing computers in medical practices or hospitals, providing physicians with the flexibility to analyze and process 2-D and 3-D ultrasound images inside or outside the reading room. syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis software strengthens Siemens’ innovative power — a key component of the Healthcare Sector’s Agenda 2013 two-year global initiative.

syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis is optimized for breast ultrasound workflow, making 2-D review and 3-D data manipulation easy and comfortable. It offers image analysis and reporting with comprehensive tools for data review in one place and produces streamlined reports that support the American College of Radiology (ACR) BI-RADS U.S. Lexicon Classification Form1 — offering standardized reporting to allow faster, easier communication with referring physicians. Users can import digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) data for review, manipulation and editing as well as annotating and archiving of patient reports. In addition, the software provides standardized results that permit physicians to compare images with future or past findings.

"The new syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis software for ABVS is an attractive advance in intelligent efficiency — easier movement through the many images with intuitive measuring and localizing tools, fewer clicks and neater arrangement of the images,” says Ellen Mendelson, M.D., professor of radiology and section chief, breast and women's imaging, Feinberg School of Medicine and Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Chicago. “Hanging protocols include right and left comparisons in all views, resulting in greater efficiency and facilitating accuracy in interpretation."

The syngo.Ultrasound Breast Analysis software application can be installed on a wide variety of hardware, including a personal laptop or desktop system, a department’s local picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and/or vendor-neutral archives. It eliminates the need for additional computer hardware in the reading room, facilitating a tidy, organized work environment. The ability to use the software independent of the reading room gives users more variability regarding when and where to review examination results, helping to address today’s requirements of increased work flexibility.

ABVS for Streamlined Workflow, Reduced Operator Variability

The Acuson S2000 ABVS helps physicians identify potential pathologies by acquiring automated full-field volumes of the breast, reducing examination times from 30 to 15 minutes. It utilizes a high-frequency 14 MHz automated transducer that automatically sweeps over the breast, producing a 15 cm x 17 cm field of view (FOV) volume. In addition to streamlining workflow, this FOV helps reduce operator variability, enabling potential improvements in image quality and consistency. The multi-purpose system is an ideal adjunct to mammography for women with different needs, from asymptomatic women to women with known radiographically dense breast tissue and/or a history of breast disease.
