Intelligent Software and Applications
Designed for Excellent Image Quality While Managing and Reducing Dose.
The software portion of the Right Dose portfolio is designed to help you get the most information possible from a medical image while managing and reducing dose for all stakeholders to a sensible minimum. These are only a few special highlights.
Angiography - CARE+CLEAR
CARE+CLEAR depicts a portfolio of software tools designed to enhance image quality and save dose. They are all based on the belief, that every patient and every clinical case is different. Only the user should decide on the image quality needed, and then determine the lowest possible dose. CAREposition, CAREguard and CAREmonitor are outstanding examples of software based applications that benefit dose saving and dose monitoring in the angiography suite.
Computed Tomography - CARE Right
For Computed Tomography, providing sound and sustainable results means applying the right dose to your patients for sound diagnostic imaging. Consequently, Siemens is committed to the right dose in CT with the holistic dedicated computed tomography approach CARE Right. The Right Dose Technology, like CARE Dose4D, CARE kV or SAFIRE1, enables clinical staff with appropriate means to effectively reduce patient radiation.
Molecular Imaging – IQ·SPECT
One of the key trends in nuclear medicine has been the ever-increasing demand for faster myocardial perfusion imaging. Historically, image quality has been limited by the number of detected photons. Siemens IQ·SPECT is the only technology today that performs ultra-fast cardiac imaging with a general purpose camera. With IQ·SPECT, physicians can perform a myocardial perfusion imaging study in approximately 4 minutes using the standard dose, 8 minutes using half the standard dose or 16 minutes using one-quarter of the standard dose.
Reading and reporting – syngo Workflow
The Radiation Dose Management Solution – powered by Radimetrics – is a comprehensive dose tracking system. When used with Siemens’ powerful Radiology Information System (RIS) application, syngo Workflow, the Radiation Dose Management Solution automatically captures the radiation dose information in the diagnostic report without any additional clicks or dictation. This helps to save time, enhance data accuracy, and reduce any additional overhead.
1In clinical practice, the use of SAFIRE may reduce CT patient dose depending on the clinical task, patient size, anatomical location, and clinical practice. A consultation with a radiologist and a physicist should be made to determine the appropriate dose to obtain diagnostic image quality for the particular clinical task.
