50th UK syngo.via Milestone at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital

Siemens HealthcareLiverpool Heart and Chest Hospital has become the 50th hospital in the UK to install syngo®.via from Siemens Healthcare. The advanced client-server application is initially being used with a newly installed SOMATOM® Definition Flash CT for the swift collation, pre-processing and interpretation of clinical images. It has already allowed the hospital to reduce queues for workstations and it is hoped will eventually improve overall departmental workflow. In due course it will also be linked to MRI image reporting.

syngo.via is a multi-modality advanced visualisation solution. It automatically prepares cases for reading according to condition-specific requirements. It can be accessed from any computer, allowing images to be shared with colleagues wherever they are located, in the hospital or beyond. It is expected the reduction in manual reporting processes will lead to efficiencies within hospital departments to promote greater diagnostic confidence and improved workflow.

"The image quality of the Definition Flash is fantastic and with the addition of syngo.via we anticipate significant time savings, improvements in workflow and diagnosis pathways," said Dr. Binukrishnan, Consultant Radiologist at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital. "The boundaries are endless with syngo.via - it is multifunctional and has significantly reduced the manual processing steps inside the department. With multiple user licenses, it has also removed the queues at workstations as our radiologists can now report from anywhere - even from home. We now feel we are getting the most out of our imaging systems and can therefore deliver better patient care. It is, without doubt, the future of radiology reporting."

"Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital has only recently had their Definition Flash and syngo.via installed and we're delighted they are seeing the benefits at this early stage," said Ronan Kirby, syngo Business Manager at Siemens Healthcare. "syngo.via will not only free up time for radiology reporting, but the profundity of the advanced imaging software will provide clinicians with more information than they have had access to in the past to instill greater diagnostic confidence."
