BRINGING A NEW RHYTHM TO CARDIOLOGY WORKFLOW: SIEMENS
DEMONSTRATES ANSWERS TO CARDIOLOGY’S TOUGHEST QUESTIONS


At ACC 2008 Siemens Will Showcase Its Portfolio of Cardiovascular Solutions


CHICAGO, Ill
.
,
March

27
, 2008



Siemens Healthcare
(
www.usa.siemens.com/healthcare
)

will
demonstrate

how
its
laboratory diagnostics,
imaging and information technology (IT)
solutions are
helping to
“Bring a New Rhythm to
Cardiology W
orkflow,” at
the 57th Annual Scientific Session of the American College of
Cardiology (ACC) from March
30

through

April 1 at booth #
3006.

Siemens will
showcase
the

Artis
zee
®

family of interventional imaging systems.
With Artis zee systems, users can see v
essel edges more precisely, and ensure proper
stent positioning within seconds. The family’s future
-
forward design also supports
emerging therapeutic treatments. In addition, the Artis
zeego
®
, which recently received
U.S. Food and Drug Administration 510(k
) marketing clearance, features

a multi
-
axis C
-
arm that employs robotic technology to extend imaging capabilities
through virtually
unrestricted

positioning.

Also on display will be the
cardiovascular version of the
ACUSON
X300

,
an all
-
purpose ultrasound
system that provides compact, portable color Doppler solutions

for
adult, p
ediatric, OR, EP
,

and interventional cardiology

applications
.

Siemens will also showcase
syngo
®

Dynamics

for

multi
-
modality
diagnostic image
management
and the
Soarian
®

Cardiology

c
ardiovascular information system
. With
Soarian Cardiology and
syngo

Dynamics, Siemens advances its trendsetting strategy of
delivering end
-
to
-
end IT, imaging and workflow solutions. In a clinical environment where
images are critical to the care of a patie
nt, physicians need all images and data
accessible at one workstation and available via a longitudinal clinical repository. This

solution helps enable the goal of a seamless, optimized workflow for the care of the
cardiovascular patient.

Siemens Users Shar
e Best Practices

At the 2008 ACC, Siemens has asked a number of customers to present short
success stories to conference attendees about how Siemens technology has helped them
“Bring a New Rhythm to Cardiology Workflow.” Topics will range from reducing doo
r
-
to
-
balloon time with the company’s innovative X
-
ray imaging systems to reducing the time it
takes to generate a cardiology report with the company’s image and information
management solutions. Speakers will be at the Siemens booth (#3006) throughout the
day on Sunday March 30 and Monday March 31. A complete schedule will be posted in
the Siemens booth.

Enhancing the Cardiology Spectrum

Siemens will also display its full spectrum of cardiovascular solutions, including:


Interventional Cardiology



The
Artis

zee
®

is

the next generation
o
f interventional imaging
systems
. See vessel
edges more precisely,
and ensure

proper stent position
in
g within seconds. Artis
zee
’s

future forward design also supports emerging therapeutic treatments. In
addition, the Artis
zee
go
®

features

a multi
-
axis C
-
arm that employs robotic
technology to extend imaging capabilities
through virtually unrestricted

positioning.


Cardiovascular CT



The world’s first dual source CT, the
SOMATOM Definition

,

is faster than every
heartbeat, eliminating the need for beta blockers and reducing radiation exposure
by as much as 50 percent when compared to traditional cardiac CT imaging. In
addition to advanced imaging,
syngo
®

WebSpace

represents the latest innov
ation
in client
-
server solutions for CT applications and offers real
-
time access to CT data
at a doctor’s office or home, and even on the road through a network connection.

Information Technology



By combining multimodality, diagnostic image management fr
om
syngo
®

Dynamics

with the nursing documentation, orders, and outcomes analysis capabilities of
Soarian Cardiology
, the Soarian Cardiology and
syngo

Dynamics solution provides
powerful procedural and episodic care reporting capabilities and a cardiovascul
ar
electronic patient record (EPR) that supports the cardiac care process. With
Soarian Cardiology and
syngo

Dynamics, Siemens advances its trendsetting
strategy of delivering end
-
to
-
end IT, imaging and workflow solutions. In a clinical
environment where i
mages are critical to the care of a patient, physicians need all
images and data accessible at one workstation and available via a longitudinal
clinical repository. This solution helps enable the goal of a seamless, optimized
workflow for the care of the c
ardiovascular patient.


Cardiovascular MR



The combination of advanced speed and higher resolution images has expanded
the role of magnetic resonance imaging in cardiology.
syngo
®
Inline VF
, new from
Siemens, enables fully automatic detection of heart conto
urs and cardiac wall
motion during image acquisition. Now, this software can help physicians more
accurately assess cardiac function immediately after a scan.


Molecular Imaging



True efficiency and integration are achieved with Siemens’ cardiology solution
s,
including
c.cam

, Symbia SPECT, Symbia SPECT•CT, and Biograph PET•CT

systems. Siemens’
MI

solutions provide cardiologists with functional information
,

such as wall motion, myocardial perfusion, and in some cases
,

plaque
characterization, as well as morp
hological information, such as the presence of
coronary calcifications. Siemens will also highlight

PETNET
, which
provide
s

biomarkers for clinical and preclinical
PET

imaging through PETNET’s SafetyNet


international network of more than 45 manufacturing a
nd distribution centers
.
