CT Cardio-Vascular Engine
Driving progress with the full spectrum of myocardial perfusion assessments.
Rapid Results Technology facilitates Cardiovascular Reading
Martin Horák at Homolka Hospital, Prague, was one of the first to test Rapid Results Technology. As the demands for standardized views and visualizations are increasing in his institution, he benefits from automated and reproducible image generation. Experience how Rapid Results Technology speeds up his work.
At Åarhus University Hospital, Skejby, Denmark, the CT Cardio-Vascular Engine facilitates reading CT angiography images of the heart.
The applications range from the evaluation of CAD to assessing left and right ventricular function based on MinDose data – for a full cardiac assessment in less than four minutes. The cardiac imaging center at Åarhus University Hospital uses a five user set-up of syngo.via in combination with the SOMATOM Definition Flash.
The University of Brescia, Italy, speeds up cardiovascular reading with syngo.via
Cases that previously required 45 minutes for a thorough analysis are now completed in only 4 minutes. The Automated Pre-Processing allows to rule out CAD in less than a minute. The 3-license configuration of syngo.via is hooked up to the SOMATOM Definition Flash scanner and allows diagnosis at the acquisition workplace and in the PACS reading room.
In Focus: Avoiding Unnecessary Cath With DSCT
Professor Achenbach, cardiologist at the University of Erlangen, demonstrates how CCTA has been successfully implemented and where Siemens makes the difference. In this case study, he shows how patients can be spared unnecessary diagnostic cath.
