02_ArtisQ_zenAt the 64th Annual Scientific Session & Expo of the American College of Cardiology in San Diego, Siemens Healthcare displayed a number of solutions at its booth, which had the theme “More Cardiology, Less Heartache.”

Shown among the company’s portfolio of systems and support solutions was the recently FDA-approved PURE platform for Siemens’ Artis zee, Artis Q, and Artis Q.zen angiography systems. The platform aims to add smooth use to existing smart technologies while maintaining high standards in image quality and dose reduction. Features include a 3D Wizard feature, which enables users to click on the desired resultant image type from multiple model images for each part of the body. To create a 3D image, it automatically predefines all necessary parameters, such as amount and injection rate of contrast fluid, X-ray delay, and other specifications.

Siemens also had on display its latest syngo Dynamics VA10B, designed to boost noninvasive and invasive cardiovascular reading and reporting workflows. With a goal of allowing cardiologists to focus on clinical care rather than spend time with reporting, syngo Dynamics offers enhanced integration with Siemens Sensis hemodynamic monitoring system. The platform enables support of enterprise-wide cardiovascular care initiatives.

Furthermore, the company showcased its new syngo Ultrasound Apps Suite, an advanced offline cardiology analysis package integrated with an institution’s picture archiving and communications system. Seamlessly integrated with syngo Dynamics, the suite includes as an offline option the one-click eSie Valves quantification software, which improves diagnostic accuracy during diagnostic echo as well as valve interventions such as aortic and mitral valve repairs. Other clinical applications include eSie LVA for automated left ventricular analysis and eSie PISA for assessment of mitral regurgitation.
