Siemens releases cardiology image management and reporting system
Siemens Medical Solutions announced a new cardiology image management and reporting solution, syngo Dynamics version 6, a multi-modality, dynamic image review and reporting solution that delivers real-time data transfer between Siemens’ Sensis XP and syngo Dynamics. The solution improves the efficiency of clinical procedures related to cardiology, vascular and other medical disciplines, relying on IHE profiles and DICOM. It also supports HL7 via interface engines to provide open connectivity and allows healthcare facilities to create a filmless and paperless environment.

“We are streamlining exam review and diagnosis time and improving workflow across the care team. Additionally, we expect to increase the efficiency of clinical procedures using the solution’s evidence-based reporting tools,” said Lyle Muhammad, director, Cardiology Services, Cardiac Catheterization Lab and Non-Invasive Cardiology, Methodist Willowbrook Hospital.

Version 6 of syngo Dynamics continues the evolution of Siemens ACUSON KinetDx, an image management and reporting solution by providing a review, report and archive system for improving patient care, increasing productivity and managing costs throughout the echocardiography laboratory. With syngo Dynamics, cardiologists will benefit from the increase in diagnostic information and numerous workflow features that simplify exam review and report generation, helping reduce data entry errors.

 “We have been able to expedite our workflow enormously – cutting report turnaround time from seven days to 30 minutes by automating the distribution of referring physician reports,” said Thomas Forbes, MD, director, Cardiac Catheterization Laboratory, Children’s Hospital of Michigan. “syngo Dynamics seamlessly integrates our clinical cardiac catheterization knowledge with user-friendly reporting to enhance our workflow and speed our clinical service delivery. Instead of simply linking up individual departments, we can now connect all areas within Children’s Hospital and beyond.”
