Features & Benefits


Smart PACS

Boosts routine reading with intuitive operation, intelligent work aids, mobile access, and 3D technology – making it a smart PACS workhorse that increases quality and productivity in your radiology department.

  • Rapid loading performance – helps minimize waiting times and enables you to start reading right away
  • Personalized tools and layouts – intuitive user interface and customizable layouts allow quick and efficient navigation through cases
  • Integrated 3D functionality – enhances diagnostic capabilities for your daily routine
  • Mobile extension – secure mobile access to your data increases productivity and allows collaboration between physicians for improved patient outcomes

3D everyday routine reading

  • With the 3D+2 extension 3D reading is integrated into the routine interpretation process of multi-planar images
  • Standard 3D methods such as MPR/MIP/VRT are available – but also advanced functions like automatic Spine/Rib labeling, automatic reconstruction and views and Image Fusion. 

Mobile access – on-the-fly reading of images and reports

With the mobile extension of our PACS, referrers can securely access images and reports for viewing in a standard web browser or on a mobile device. Since this solution can be accessed from a standard web browser and Apple or Android mobile device, sharing information with fellow physicians inside and outside the hospital is fast and easy.3

  • Secure viewing of reports and on-the-fly reading of images in 2D and 3D mode
  • Referring physicians are granted access to images and reports through mandated access. Even prior studies can be accessed
  • HIPAA enabling – no patient data is stored on any external PC or device 

Modular centerpiece with VNA

Our highly scalable, modular PACS solution lets you connect, integrate, and manage all IT components effortlessly - today and tomorrow - from vendor-neutral archiving up to enterprise-wide solutions.

  • Our PACS is a reliable, stable, and easy-to-manage system that can significantly reduce the administrative effort
  • Easy integration of all disciplines – including a mammography extension
  • PACS imaging consolidation across an entire enterprise – by integrating different radiological departments with our DICOM VNA
  • Consolidating enterprise-wide radiological and clinical data – with multi-specialty archiving solution Universal VNA

Lasting Investment

Our PACS solution helps make routine reading pay off with the latest technology: it offers 3D for everyday routine reading and provides cost-effective upgrades to keep your IT investment fresh today – and ready to grow with future plans.

  • Wide spectrum of clinical applications – clinicians save time by accessing features from their workplace that are usually only available separately
  • Modular and scalable design – makes our PACS suitable for a wide range of scenarios and changing requirements
  • Smart Data Conversion – with fast and efficient mechanisms that help elevate your PACS system to our PACS solution 

Clinical Use

Today`s PACS solutions are productivity tools to support your clinical goals. Here's what it takes to make your PACS a powerful image management platform.

PACS in radiology

As radiology department caseloads increase with the consolidation in the healthcare industry and the aging population, institutions need to stay competitive with their reading and reporting performance. A powerful Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) that is expandable for the future is inevitable. To improve clinics' imaging workflows, images must be available across departmental boundaries and with mobile access.
Viewing, reading, image sharing, and archiving are core processes. Your PACS is the radiology centerpiece that should be designed for frequent, heavy use, supporting users with robust performance, intuitive operation, and intelligent reading tools.
syngo.plaza is the smart PACS workhorse for reading and reporting a large variety of cases – from routine to complex. It brings 3D technology to everyday reading, within your PACS, and opens up powerful storage capacities, enabling vendor-neutral archiving, even enterprise-wide4.

Deconstructed PACS

The approach of deconstructing the PACS combines best-of-breed solutions for archiving, workflow, and viewing needs. Each component follows an individual optimization in itself and gains an additional overall value for managing the institutions imaging informatics assets.

Furthermore the consolidation of enterprise-wide radiological and clinical data – with one multi-specialty archiving solution is the basic idea of enterprise imaging.
