AIDAN Platform - Intelligent imaging platform for PET/CT
AIDAN PlatformIntelligent imaging platform for PET/CT
AIDAN is our intelligent imaging platform for Biograph™ PET/CT scanners that supports the demanding processing power of AI-based solutions. Combined with the Biograph family of smart PET/CT scanners, AIDAN accelerates operational efficiency and creates an elevated patient workflow that generates more precise diagnoses and helps transform care delivery. For molecular imaging professionals, AIDAN uses powerful artificial intelligence to generate real impact.

Finding solutions that improve diagnostic accuracy, enable an exceptional patient experience, and lift organizational performance is critical. Today, Biograph Horizon™, Biograph™ mCT, and Biograph Vision™ scannerscontinue to be at the forefront through artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled functionality made possible by AIDAN.
Our customers say ...
"Artificial intelligence used in AIDAN features is very nicely integrated; you don't really see it and makes them very natural to use.”
John O. Prior, PhD, MD, FEBNM
Professor and Head of Department of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Lausanne, Switzerland
"The standardization and efficiency of AI can be especially beneficial to departments that rotate technologists day after day.”
Dustin Osborne, PhD
Director, Clinical Research The University of Tennessee Graduate School of MedicineKnoxville, Tennessee, USA
"I think the AI aspects are massively helpful; they allow you to focus on what really matters.”

Leading the way with artificial intelligence
AIDAN is the result of 25 years of hardware and software innovations that enable next-generation solutions in oncology, cardiology, and neurology. We were the first to bring AI-powered applications to the scanner. With more than 40 AI offerings from over 700 machine- and deep-learning patents across Siemens Healthineers, we continue to lead the drive to bring new AI functionality to PET/CT.
ALPHA for innovative and smart molecular imaging applications
Automatic landmarking and parsing of human anatomy (ALPHA), a Siemens Healthineers proprietary technology, supports optimized workflows on both scanners and syngo.via reading solutions.
ALPHA can be used to recognize and infer anatomical patterns and consists of an algorithm to detect anatomical landmarks at its core. The algorithm is designed to mimic the human foveal vision system. The underlying technology is a multi-layered, machine-learning algorithm that has been trained using many expert-annotated images across modalities and uses three redundancy concepts to achieve robustness.
ALPHA technology reliably provides anatomical context and has been used to enrich applications on the AIDAN platform.
