Future of Therapy
ECR 2019 – Highlights from Siemens Healthineers
Just like that the 2019 is in the books, here are a few highlights. We had a great time, thanks to everyone that came to see us.
ARTIS icono. An icon of innovation.
Minimally invasive treatments have already seen a decade of great progress, but they still hold vast potential for growth and innovation.
The ARTIS icono family is designed to help you realize that potential by enabling you to offer any procedure mix in a single interventional suite. Its state-of-the-art technology will keep you at the top of your game for years to come. This is what we mean by an icon of innovation.
Transforming care delivery in image guided therapy with ARTIS icono
During a stroke millions of neurons die every minute. Fast imaging and reliable treatment decisions are vital. Here’s how the ARTIS icono1 could help.
Digital future of radiology
True digital transformation begins when we can pull together the enormous amount of information now available to healthcare systems which are often too fragmented to act upon decisively.
One of the main enablers of digitalization certainly is Artificial intelligence (AI), and we are in the forefront of the AI arena:
- Long-term experience in AI with over 500 patents in machine learning and over 100 in deep learning
- Powerful supercomputing framework with 400 AI experiments/day in co-creation with our network of 4,400 clinical collaborations
How will AI change image interpretation?
Transforming clinical inputs into interpretation ready data is one way how artificial intelligence could support radiologists. For example the AI-Rad Companion chest CT can augment certain tasks by pre-analyze medical images for abnormalities and characterizing relevant anatomies.

Patient centric diagnosis and treatment decisions along a clinical pathway
AI pathway companion can help the physician or multidisciplinary team to make data driven, objective diagnosis and optimal treatment decision for each patient along the clinical pathway by providing an integrated view of the patient.

Remote scanning assistance with syngo Virtual Cockpit
How can digitalization expand the boundaries of person-related expertise in radiology? Less common radiological exams often require expert knowledge. Staff bottlenecks and the lack of expertise are serious challenges in radiology today. With the syngo Virtual Cockpit, expert technologists can assist less experienced staff remotely.
Automated precise patient positioning with FAST 3D Camera
Did you know that to 95% patients might be positioned wrong during a CT scan? AI can help reduce this number. Inaccurately positioned CT scans can lead to increased dose which can affect image quality and potentially lead to rescans that cannot be reimbursed.
Lifenet – from single device to cross institutional fleet management
Reliably running systems are crucial for every medical institution. Online portals can help manage maintenance activities so your equipment runs more efficiently and cost-effectively, reduce operational interruptions and improve scheduling.
Can digitalization help improve workflows in radiology?
Yes! Cloud-based networks can help turn your performance data into actionable insights
Strategies to optimize Digital Breast Tomosynthesis for clinical implementation
The advantage of digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) over digital mammography for breast cancer screening has been discussed in several population-based screening trials. We spoke with Prof. Ioannis Secholpoulos from the Radboud University about different strategies to optimize the potential of DBT screening.
The future of breast cancer screening: Digital breast tomosynthesis
The Lund University in Malmö, Sweden was one of the first to carry out a large population-based study on a potential change in breast screening with the use of digital tomosynthesis. Prof. Sophia Zackrisson shares some of her findings.
