Siemens Healthcare introduces syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis, a software application for offline review of images, volumes and clips produced with the Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS) and the Acuson S2000 ultrasound system. The software offers comprehensive image processing and reporting tools designed to improve breast ultrasound quality and workflow. It can be installed on existing computers in medical practices or hospitals, allowing physicians to analyze and process 2D and 3D ultrasound images inside or outside the reading room. The syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis software contributes to increasing Siemens' innovative power - a key component of the Healthcare Sector's Agenda 2013 two-year global initiative.
The syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis software is optimized for breast ultrasound workflow, making 2D review and 3D data analysis 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® US Lexicon Classification Form1 - offering standardized reporting to allow faster, easier communication with referring physicians. Users can import DICOM data for review, 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 software application can be installed on a wide variety of hardware, including a 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.
Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner (ABVS)
The Acuson S2000 ABVS ultrasound scanner helps identify potential pathologies by acquiring automated full-field volumes of the breast, reducing exam times from 30 minutes 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 reduces operator variability, leading to improvements in image quality and consistency. The multi-purpose ultrasound system is an ideal adjunct to mammography for women with different needs, from asymptomatic women to women with known dense breast tissue and/or a history of breast disease.
Launched in November 2011 by the Siemens Healthcare Sector, "Agenda 2013" is a two-year global initiative to further strengthen the Healthcare Sector's innovative power and competitiveness. Specific measures will be implemented in four fields of action: Innovation, Competitiveness, Regional Footprint, and People Development.
