syngo CT Oncology

syngo CT Oncology is a comprehensive software solution designed to fast-track routine CT imaging for oncology diagnostics, staging, and follow-up.

Eigenschaften & Vorteile

syngo CT Oncology provides a range of fully automated tools specifically designed to support physicians in the detection, segmentation, and evaluation of suspicious lesions including dedicated tools for lung, liver, and lymph node assessment. It also offers a fully automated follow-up protocol and features LungCAD (computer assisted detection) as a second reader tool for lung lesions. syngo CT Oncology also facilitates functional imaging offering fusion of PET with CT data.

Clinical Applications

More than 60% of CT exams are done in relation to cancer diagnostics, treatment and follow-up management. syngo CT Oncology in combination with low-dose CT spiral exams of the chest, abdomen, pelvis, etc., allows for detection, diagnosis, staging and follow-up of lung nodules, colon polyps, mediastinal lesions, liver lesions and lymph node primary involvement or metastasis.

Image Fusion

  • Workflow
  • Quick first visual alignment with six degrees of freedom (3 x translation, 3 x rotation) with direct pan and zoom
  • Automatic registration based on mutual information considering similarity of volume data sets
  • Visualization
  • Side-by-side display of both data sets with all available rendering types such as MPR, MIP, MIP thin
  • 2D alpha blending in monochrome or pseudo-color with adjustable balance between the superimposed data sets to optimize representation
  • 2D alpha blending of thin and thick MPRs
  • Advanced alpha blending with definition of individual visibility thresholds for model and reference data set
  • Fusion of two datasets with MIP presentation
  • Support of Nuclear Medicine and PET data by displaying Standardized Uptake Values (SUV)
  • Pixel lens support on fused images; PET measurements and calculations are done in SUVs
  • Optimized direct windowing of both data sets with middle mouse button
  • Storage of fused result images as secondary capture images

Documentation and Reporting

  • Flexible, comprehensive reporting
  • Specific details such as the location, morphology, and characteristics of each lesion can be entered together with images
  • All information entered is saved as DICOM SR data
  • Different output formats (e.g. Excel, PDF and HTML)
