Siemens syngo.fourSight for Obstetrics Now Available

by on July 9, 2010
 

A few months ago, Siemens demonstrated their ‘syngo.fourSight’ product at the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists in San Francisco.  An impressive demo, it wasn’t available to the public until just now.

While conventional 3D ultrasound technologies use two-dimensional monitors for the evaluation of 3D images, syngo.fourSight Workplace uses NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ technology with NVIDIA Quadro® FX high-end professional graphics solutions, utilizing the NVIDIA CUDA™ architecture, to offer a 3D viewing experience in “real 3D.” Providing additional information to the physician and assisting in communication with surgeons and patients, this quality improvement may also improve paternal-fetal bonding, and aid in treatment or pre- and post-natal surgical planning.

I had the chance to see this in action, and it truly has to be seen to be appreciated.  Live reconstruction of sonogram imagery for true “4D Viewing” (3D viewing that animates real-time) truly is impressive to watch.  They call it ‘Amnioscopic Rendering Mode’, but it’s essentially a volume rendering algorithm designed with known fetal and biological parameters to create realistic lighting conditions and scattering effects.

Full release after the break.

syngo.fourSight Workplace Imaging Management Solution for Obstetrics Now Available

Siemens announced today the availability of its syngo®.fourSight™ Workplace, a powerful image management tool for enhanced patient throughput and department workflow in obstetrical ultrasound. It provides off-system 3D/4D volume manipulation and 2D image and clip review for a variety of Siemens’ most powerful ultrasound platforms. Using the latest professional graphics technology, syngo.fourSight Workplace takes 3D/4D imaging to the next level by delivering a 3D experience that is more immersive, detailed, and real-to-life than ever before.

syngo.fourSight Workplace offers busy OB practices, hospitals and imaging centers a comprehensive toolset for volume image manipulation including Thick Slice Imaging, MultiSlice imaging and various rendering modes. Amnioscopic Rendering, a Siemens-exclusive technology, provides a user-movable light source to produce photo-realistic 3D images of the fetus. Unique industry applications, such as Skeletal Rendering, further enhance the clinical excellence of the system. This Siemens-proprietary 3D/4D rendering technique delivers true volumetric imaging with accurate spatial resolution for enhanced visualization of the fetal skeleton.

A cost-effective, innovative 3D imaging solution, syngo.fourSight Workplace also features true stereoscopic views of 3D images of the fetus offering a rewarding experience for parents while delivering practical benefits in medicine.

While conventional 3D ultrasound technologies use two-dimensional monitors for the evaluation of 3D images, syngo.fourSight Workplace uses NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ technology with NVIDIA Quadro® FX high-end professional graphics solutions, utilizing the NVIDIA CUDA™ architecture, to offer a 3D viewing experience in “real 3D.” Providing additional information to the physician and assisting in communication with surgeons and patients, this quality improvement may also improve paternal-fetal bonding, and aid in treatment or pre- and post-natal surgical planning.
