At RSNA 2009 in Chicago this week, Siemens is unveiling its first PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) software package. The syngo.plaza provides easy access to 2D, 3D, and 4D visuals from CT, MRI, and ultrasound sources.
Some published features from the press release:
Once an image is obtained, syngo.plaza automatically identifies the type based on the scanner that was used and then, in line with the case complexity, calls up the corresponding 2D, 3D, or 4D applications. Through no-click integration to syngo.via, Siemens new imaging software, users can access the appropriate syngo.via applications directly through syngo.plaza. Combined with a unified user-interface, this allows for a smooth transition between different applications and helps speed up the reading workflow.
With its wide application range, syngo.plaza even helps users master complex multi-modality cases through access to syngo.via and syngo Multimodality Workplace applications. And, with its Patient Jacket functionality, syngo.plaza makes it easy to view patient history at a glance – including prior exams, reports, and Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) presentation states.
In addition to its one-of-a-kind prepared reading capabilities, syngo.plaza also offers two viewing modes for users. The first is a pre-configured intuitive interface. The second is a customizable option that allows users to define and use the layouts they prefer. This role-based view helps streamline the reading workflow and helps eliminate time wasted adjusting to strictly one-size-fits-all PACS technologies. In addition, the time-saving SmartSelect tool enables users to access their most frequently used functions directly in the diagnostic screen without taking their eyes off the images. Plus, syngo.plaza’s innovative system architecture allows clinicians to access the software within their facility or remotely.
