Siemens Healthcare announced that it will introduce Symbia.net, the new client-server solution for SPECT and SPECT-CT imaging applications at the 2009 SNM Annual Meeting in Toronto. Symbia.net provides anytime, anywhere processing and reading client-server solution for SPECT and SPECT-CT imaging applications
We are very pleased to introduce this progressive client server solution into our portfolio. It will allow for a portable architecture to support larger image datasets derived from molecular imaging technologies, said Michael Reitermann, chief executive officer, Molecular Imaging, Siemens Healthcare. As clinical utilization for molecular imaging procedures increases, a client server solution, such as Symbia.net, allows users to have more flexibility for information exchange.
Symbia.net will allow facilities that require reading from multiple locations to easily share and access patient imaging data. Specific needs of molecular imaging are met with user-friendly interface and advanced automation features of Symbia.net. It improves clinical workflow by providing hospital staff with economical, easy, access to all patient cases and applications.
Symbia.net provides any time user access with greater flexibility and instant access to patient data when it is needed. Siemens standard and advanced clinical applications engines, as well as third-party cardiac packages can be configured with Symbia.net. Five users can access Symbia.net working in parallel. Symbia.net includes wireless access and supports WAN, LAN, or VPN
Symbia.net can be easily installed, operated and integrated. It will work with any existing SPECT-CT system or SPECT, PACS and RIS infrastructure. Images can be uploaded to the server database automatically, making it easy to access patient information. More remote users can be added at any time and installed remotely to grow with the needs of the imaging facility.
Less capital investment is required Symbia.net than two stand-alone workstations with comparable configurations. Symbia.net can be easily maintained, serviced, and expanded as needs dictate.
Any PC or MAC that has a network connection and minimum hardware requirements can be compatible Symbia.net.
