Siemens Ships Ultrasound Workstation for OB/GYN, Cardiac Imaging

syngo US Workplace 3.5

August 26, 2009 – Siemens Healthcare is now shipping its syngo US Workplace 3.5, with ultrasound applications for clinical workflow and patient care for cardiac imaging, general imaging, OB/GYN and vascular screening, including the syngo Arterial Health Package (AHP) for semi-automated carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT) measurements.

The syngo US Workplace 3.5 is an intuitive image management platform that supports instant and open access to DICOM-compliant images produced by select Siemens and other vendor ultrasound systems. This platform provides streamlined workflow and improved productivity for the clinical routine throughout the ultrasound lab or imaging department. While ultrasound images are acquired at the patient’s bedside, physicians can analyze images and complete reports anytime, anywhere through a standard PC network connection.

The syngo US Workplace, release 3.5 features the syngo Arterial Health Package (AHP), a tool that is designed to provide cardiovascular ultrasound specialists with the capability to measure carotid intima-media thickness.

CIMT allows the assessment of a patient’s cardiovascular system. The CIMT value is compared to normative values from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) database which have been validated and published in peer-reviewed studies.

syngo AHP builds on knowledge-based workflow to significantly enhance consistency and reliability of results and provide a calculation of a patient’s vascular age with individualized results. The semi-automated measurements reduce tedious, manual measurements, allowing the exam to be performed in just 15 to 20 minutes. Moreover, physicians are provided with an intuitive, easy-to-understand tool for better communicating a patient’s state of their cardiovascular health.

The syngo US workplace also features other advanced applications, including syngo Velocity Vector Imaging (VVI), which allows clinicians to examine mechanical myocardial functions to determine possible dyssynchrony and fetal heart dysfunction. The syngo fourSight View Tool is said to allow the visualization of 3D volumes, including Amnioscopic Rendering for photorealistic images of the unborn baby.

Customers can sign up for a free syngo US Workplace software trial DVD that lets them use the tool at no cost for the duration of 30-use days. Registration for the free trial offer:
