Siemens Healthcare introduces new ultrasound breast analysis software
Dec 21, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Siemens Healthcare, a supplier of medical imaging, diagnostics, medical information technology products, has introduced syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis, a software application for offline review of images, volumes and clips produced with the Acuson S2000 Automated Breast Volume Scanner, or ABVS, and the Acuson S2000 ultrasound system.
According to the company, the software offers 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. New ultrasound breast analysis software from Siemens supports quick and detailed review of 3D and 2D breast ultrasound images.
The syngo Ultrasound Breast Analysis software is optimized for breast ultrasound workflow. It offers image analysis and reporting with tools for data review in one place and produces streamlined reports that support the American College of Radiology (ACR) BI-RADS US Lexicon Classification Form - offering standardized reporting to allow faster 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, the company said.
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 company added.
