Siemens Shows Advanced Reading Tools

At this year's RSNA, Siemens will present its new solutions for advanced reading of clinical images. With these new products, the company is placing special focus on automated case preparation and structured case navigation for multimodality images based on computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), molecular imaging (MI), X-ray, and ultrasound. This helps support quantitative reading in radiology and is designed to efficiently execute routine and challenging cases across specialties such as oncology, neurology, and cardiology.

Additionally, Siemens will demonstrate the benefits of offering a unique integration of image acquisition modalities and image reading software in one complete solution, showcasing the company’s distinct advantage as an integrated healthcare provider. That means acquired images are rapidly accessible within the network, and that images created with the newest modality functionalities, such as CT Dual Energy, can be utilized within that network.
