Siemens Shows Syngo WebSpace at Medica 2006

SIEMENSSiemens Medical Solutions shows syngo WebSpace, a client-server computed tomography (CT) workplace solution, at Medica 2006 from November 15 through 18, 2006. Addressing the need for rapid access to medical images, Siemens is the first CT manufacturer to provide a solution that turns office personal computers (PC) and laptops into CT workplaces, offering real-time access to CT data at a doctor's office and home, and even on the road through a simple network connection. Medical professionals can connect to the server in a matter of seconds and work with a patient's CT scans anytime and anywhere, improving productivity and diagnosis capabilities.

Syngo WebSpace represents the newest innovation in client-server solutions for CT applications. Traditionally, large volume thin-slice data has been stored for days on the CT scanner and time is lost when retrieving them from some picture archive and communications systems (PACS). Syngo WebSpace enables storage for hundreds of thin-slice data cases and large thin-slice data sets (up to 5,000 slices) that are immediately available for 2D, 3D and 4D interactive reading using Siemens syngo InSpace 4D software. All rendering takes place on the server, providing users with advanced processing speed. Ideally suited for short-term storage of thin-slice CT data, syngo WebSpace gives users rapid access to thin-slice data, while freeing up the CT scanner database.

Syngo WebSpaceSyngo WebSpace facilitates from five to 20 concurrent sessions, depending on the server configuration, from any number of users throughout the hospital network and via secure access from remote locations. Medical facilities can access multiple servers to further expand the possible number of concurrent sessions. This offers a very cost-effective solution for fast image distribution and high availability, routine clinical post-processing. Once syngo WebSpace is connected to the central server, a PACS workplace or PC can be turned into a processing workplace. First installations of syngo WebSpace are already running at leading institutions such as the University of Erlangen, the University of Munich and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. "Siemens syngo WebSpace represents what customers are demanding from us today: an IT-solution for processing CT data that allows flexible use of different modalities and within different workflows", said Dr. Bernd Montag, head of Computed Tomography at Siemens Medical Solutions. "The syngo WebSpace's client-server architecture makes it possible for every modern computer running Windows to have the CT data immediately and nearly everywhere available so that the physicians' expert knowledge can be better used in health care organizations and on patients."
