A three-dimensional (3D) diagnostic reading solution provides new applications and operations with software that “understands” human anatomy.

Siemens Healthcare’s (Erlangen, Germany) version VA30 of its custom 3D diagnostic reading software offers the syngo.via General Engine, a new package of highly automated and standardized applications.

Anatomic range presets, for instance, recognizes individual areas of the body on images attained using computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), aligns the image projections accordingly, then chooses thorough views to smooth the progress of case preparation, for greater effectiveness and allowing higher diagnostic proficiency.

Siemens is making syngo.via more anatomically intelligent in order to support radiologists and medical technology personnel in their everyday workflows. The software “understands” human anatomy and organizes the images for diagnostic reading.

Syngo.via VA30 features automatic rib labeling, for example, which automatically recognizes and labels the ribs in CT scans. Until now, radiologists had to identify the ribs manually. And given the specific shape of the ribs, this can be time-consuming and lead to errors, especially in complicated diagnostic setting such as oncology. 

Anatomic intelligence is also part of the new syngo.via General Engine software package in which customers can upgrade their software. The package includes the anatomic range presets feature, which showcases a swift, precise, optimal view of selected anatomic areas.

To help the process of diagnoses, users often create such views manually, performing the multistep process of selecting the pertinent region, aligning the image projections accordingly, and editing the detailed view. This again can be very time-consuming, requires anatomic expertise, and is error-prone.

The new application from Siemens largely automates these steps, providing a stable quality of the resulting anatomic views and images that does not rely on the skill of the given user. Using a technology similar to facial recognition in digital photography, syngo.via is able to recognize spines, shoulders, and hips, in clinical images and optimize how they are displayed in their anatomical environment. The presets are initially available for specific anatomic regions in CT and MRI images.

The radiologic diagnostic report, following an examination, plays a major role in the treatment of the patient. The syngo.via Advanced Reporting tool, part of the syngo.via General Engine, assists radiologists in creating clear, well-structured reports for the referring or follow-up physicians. Standardized templates make it easier to create reports, but these can still be customized to individual needs, and findings from other examinations can be combined into one single report.

In the past, several diagnoses meant having different documents relating to a single case. Now, the diagnostic report holds and presents the patient’s entire disease profile. This makes it much easier for doctors to form an all-inclusive assessment of the patient’s condition, which helps to improve the quality of treatment.

Syngo.via can be used as a separate device or in conjunction with a variety of syngo.via-based software options. The syngo.via General Engine is part of the medical device syngo.via. Rib labeling is not yet available in the United States.
