What is Dual Source Dual Energy?
Dual Energy reading kept simple
Dual energy clearly provides added value to your clinical routine, but it is syngo.via’s Rapid Results which helps deliver that value to you without the extra manual work and postprocessing.
With Rapid Results clinical innovations, Dual Energy can be pre-set up to make complex reconstructions, work behind the scenes without the need for manual setup during each scan. The initial set up of your protocols with Rapid Results makes post processing a part of your routine reconstruction tasks regardless of your expertise level. Standardized and consistent image quality is obtainable independent of the operator. This then translates into fast and reproducible results with zero clicks.
Rapid Results helps you make Dual Energy routine, with no need to change your clinical workflow. Just define your workflow once, and let Rapid Results produce all the dual energy images you need in the background and from only a single DE acquisition. Everything from virtual unenhanced maps, key in oncology cases, to mono-energetic images for reduced metal artifact reduction or Lung PBV maps for pulmonary embolism assessment are available automatically.
We asked Dr. Daniel Marin, Associate Professor of Radiology at Duke University Medical Center, what he thought about Rapid Results:
What is Rapid Results?
“Rapid results in a new functionality that is available on the Siemens platform, that allows a better integration between the CT scanner and syngo.via.“
How does Rapid Results Work?
“…Basically, Rapid results is able to create/ to generate datasets which are important in our daily clinical practice, without limiting any human interaction…as much as possible.”
How and why do you use Rapid Results?
“We are using it routinely in our Dual Energy CT practice, and the reason why we found it very beneficial is that we can basically create these additional data sets without any human or technologies interaction. “
What does Rapid Results mean to your practice?
“This (Rapid Results) has decreased the amount of time of the technologist at the scanner tremendously. In our experience it took us about 10-15 minutes* more for a dual energy CT study compared to the conventional energy CT study, before the introduction of Rapid Results. We were able to cut down that time and we have also decreased the number of mistakes from the CT Technologist. “
