The Royal Victoria Infirmary has installed a Magnetom Avanto1.5 Tesla MRI system from Siemens Healthcare for general and breast imaging work. Avanto MRI system is complemented by syngoBreVis diagnostic reporting software to show all patient examination results in a single view, plus BreVis Biopsy interventional software to plan and perform a biopsy when needed.

syngo Brevis Workplace is an application to provide efficient diagnostic reporting by displaying ultrasound or X-ray images, in addition to MR images, on a single screen to assist diagnosis.

The company claims that syngo Brevis Biopsy is an intuitive, fast and precise solution for planning and performing biopsies. The software automatically calculates the coordinates of breast tissue to be removed so that the procedure can be performed quickly and accurately.

A further MRI system, a Magnetom Verio 3T, is expected to be installed into The Royal Victoria Infirmary’s Neuroradiology Department shortly for brain and spine imaging.

Philip English, consultant radiographer at Royal Victoria Infirmary, said: “The BreVis Biopsy application significantly assists radiologists with making a confident, accurate needle placement for breast biopsies. The advanced planning ability also ensures that procedures are kept as short and smooth as possible for the patient,”

Neil Lincoln, regional sales manager at Siemens Healthcare, said: “It is of utmost importance that mammography patients are diagnosed smoothly and quickly to keep any discomfort or stress to a minimum. Thesyngo BreVis application is ideal for enhancing MRI workflow and assisting staff with procedure planning.”
