How It Works

Learn how syngo DynaCT works.

Cross-sectional imaging. Setting the trend in intervention.

syngo DynaCT utilizes images acquired from a DYNAVISION rotational angiography run to create an ACT (Angiographic CT). Image acquisition is achieved in approx. 10 seconds at a C-arm angle of 220°.
The volume set is reconstructed on the syngo MultiModality Workplace and available for assessment in less than 35 seconds in the interventional suite.



Enhance Your Intervention

Up until the introduction of syngo DynaCT, 3D angiography enabled the visualization of high-contrast objects such as stents, clips, bones and contrast-filled vessels during interventional procedures. With the introduction of syngo DynaCT, it is now possible to obtain soft tissue information while performing interventional procedures, which improves your decision-making and thus helps you provide better patient management.

 



Installations

More than 2000 installations worldwide

Siemens were first to introduce soft tissue imaging in the interventional suite as a breakthrough innovation for neuro applications. Continual development in collaboration with institutions worldwide has now made syngo DynaCT available for applications in the entire body. What started as a breakthrough is now a worldwide trend in interventional imaging.

Customer Statements

"Our experience with syngo DynaCT is extremely positive. ... It has an incredibly high impact on our daily practice."

The statements by Siemens' customers described herein are based on results that were achieved in the customer's unique setting. Since there is no "typical" hospital and many variables exist (e.g., hospital size, case mix, level of IT adoption) there can be no guarantee that other customers will achieve the same results.

FAQ and Scientific articles


syngo DynaCT - FAQ

What are the main advantages of syngo DynaCT?
During an interventional procedure, a CT scan is required at times. Movement of the patient to CT can be cumbersome and dangerous to the patient; for this reason CT scans are not always performed. syngo DynaCT enables CT-like cross-sectional imaging by creating 3D soft tissue data sets. syngo DynaCT can be performed directly in the angio suite without loss of time and additional risk to the patient.

What is the FOV (field of view)?
syngo DynaCT datasets acquired with Artis zee ceiling, floor or biplane provide a volume scan of 18 cm height with a diameter of 24 cm. For Large Volume syngo DynaCT datasets acquired with Artis zeego the maximum FOV is a volume scan of 18 cm height with a diameter of 47 cm. With Artis zeego syngo DynaCT datasets can also be acquired in the portrait mode then the maximum FOV is 25 cm height with a diameter of 35 cm.

What slice thickness can be reconstructed? What is the voxel size?
The standard slice thickness is 0.4 mm. The visualization allows creation of thicker slices. Current experience shows that 3 mm slices result in an optimum trade-off between resolution and sharpness.

Can I burn syngo DynaCT images on a CD with a viewer? Can I load these pictures on my laptop?
If you want to view bitmaps and avi movies, syngo - Siemens' unique software solution for all medical imaging tasks, applications, and systems - has mechanisms to create these files to import them into a presentation. If you want to visualize DICOM images, a DICOM viewer can be burned onto the CD-ROM via the syngo Workplace. Diagnosis can only be performed on a cleared medical device.

Is there a reimbursement plan for syngo DynaCT procedures?
The SIR has issued a letter regarding syngo DynaCT reimbursement, which you can find under:
www.sirweb.org/codeReim/codingRecommendations.shtml

Does syngo DynaCT offer a dedicated body protocol?
Yes, syngo DynaCT offers a dedicated body protocol, with 60 f/s more than 400 projections are acquired in 8 seconds. Due to its fast rotation this protocol reduces motion artefacts providing excellent image quality. High resolution results (512 matrix) are available at tableside in 22 seconds.

Does syngo DynaCT offer a dedicated neuro protocol?
Yes, syngo DynaCT offers a dedicated neuro protocol, with 60 f/s more than 540 projections are acquired in 20 seconds. High resolution results (512 matrix) are available at tableside in 48 seconds.
