Siemens Medical Solutions has announced the upcoming release of a new software application for thesyngo imaging platform. The latest arrival, called syngo CT oncology, provides automated tools for tumor assessment, particularly in lung, liver and lymph nodes. It comprises a set of “autopilot” functions that automatically evaluate image data, offline as soon as they are available. In particular, the software scans images for potential lesions, carries out automatic lesion matching between initial and follow-up studies for a single patient, and calculates tumor volume and percent change in volume (tumor growth). These functions are designed to save radiologists time and reduce inter-reader variability.
