syngo DE Lung Vessels

syngo DE Lung Vessels allows users to color-code vessels that are affected e.g. by pulmonary emboli and therefore show a significantly lower iodine concentration than non-affected vessels. Due to the color-coding, the affected vessels are easier to identify.

Eigenschaften & Vorteile

Clinical Applications
Evaluation of the hemodynamic perfusion deficit caused by pulmonary emboli.


  • Color-codes the iodine concentration in the lung vessels. Vessels affected by pulmonary embolism show a significantly lower iodine concentration and are thus color-coded differently than non-affected vessels
  • Improves the sensitivity to detect pulmonary emboli by demonstrating perfusion defects in the parenchyma and additionally by highlighting affected vessels
