Siemens Healthineers (Erlangen, Germany) showcased its products and solutions according to the motto “Shaping the Future of Healthcare” at this year’s Arab Health (January 27 – 30, 2020) in Dubai, UAE, focusing on digital transformation of imaging and laboratory testing while improving patient experience. The company’s products and solutions included CT scanners with intelligent user guidance, AI-based software assistants for MRI and a lab system that revolutionizes workflows.

For the first time at Arab Health, Siemens Healthineers showcased its single-source CT scanner Somatom X.cite – the first CT scanner with the new intelligent user guidance system myExam Companion, which automatically adapts scanner protocols in line with patient data and guides users of all levels of experience through more sophisticated exams and helps them achieve consistent diagnostic results. myExam Companion makes use of available patient data, such as sex, height, and age, and combines these with additional patient-specific information gathered by asking the user specific questions, for example about the presence of metal implants or the ability of patients to hold their breath. The scanner then optimizes the scan parameters accordingly to ensure the best possible result. In combination, these innovations help structure workflows more efficiently and achieve extremely high-quality results even in difficult diagnostic situations. Featuring an 82 cm gantry, Somatom X.cite can offer unprecedented image quality in the single-source segment, in addition to maximum patient comfort.

Siemens Healthineers also showcased two brand-new software assistants based on artificial intelligence that is designed to free radiologists from the burden of time-consuming routine tasks and improve quality of care during magnetic resonance imaging examinations of the brain and prostate. Its AI-Rad Companion Prostate MR for Biopsy Support automatically segments the outer contour of the prostate on MRI images and enables radiologists to mark lesions, making it easier for their colleagues in Urology to perform targeted prostate biopsies. The time needed for this routine activity can be cut down to just a few seconds. The AI-Rad Companion Brain MR for Morphometry Analysis automatically segments the brain in MRI images, measures brain volume – e.g. in cases of suspected dementia – and provides result tables on volumetric changes in brain areas, used by neurologists for diagnosis and treatment. Both new applications can be used on MRI scanners from different manufacturers and are available on teamplay, the cloud-based healthcare platform from Siemens Healthineers.

At Arab Health 2020, Siemens Healthineers showcased its ultrasound system Acuson Redwood which features advanced applications to enable precise lesion detection and characterization. AI-powered tools facilitate the examination and increase efficiency for smart workflows. The system offers shared services cardiology features which can be used by different hospital departments. For the first time at Arab Health, Siemens Healthineers presented Artis icono, its latest family of high-precision angiography systems. Artis icono permits a wide range of minimally invasive procedures to be performed in a single interventional suite. The Artis icono biplane system is engineered for optimal utilization in neuroradiology and abdominal imaging, while the Artis icono floor is a floor-mounted, single-plane system for vascular, interventional cardiology, surgical, and oncology procedures. Both systems in the Artis icono family expand the reach of precision medicine. At its core, the Artis icono platform delivers the new Optiq image chain, which fundamentally redesigns image processing for 2D imaging. Optiq increases image quality across a wide range of C-arm angles and patient weights, regulating acquisition parameters to automatically achieve constant image quality at lowest possible patient radiation dose.

Siemens Healthineers also showcased its lab system Atellica Solution that can be used by laboratories to simplify test workflows and expand their capacities for testing patient samples with its modular design. The Atellica Solution uses patented, bidirectional magnetic transport technology to transport samples to make patient results available faster. In combination with a revolutionary sample management technology providing independent control of each individual sample, emergency samples can also be prioritized with far less user input.

“The whole healthcare industry and provider landscape is going through a transformation that’s being driven by digitalization and data-based clinical decision making: While the number of connected devices is growing exponentially, only a fraction of the acquired data is structured and qualified for further use and analysis. Therein lies a tremendous opportunity to tap into this unused data pool and create new insights and value,” said Bernd Ohnesorge, President Europe, Middle East and Africa at Siemens Healthineers. “Our digital fingerprint and AI portfolio brings us together with our customers in a great position to benefit from these long-term trends to enhance the entire healthcare landscape and to provide benefit to the patient. With a portfolio of more than 45 AI-driven offerings powering our leading imaging, image-guided therapy and in-vitro diagnostics technologies combined with our long-standing presence in the Near and Middle East and in Africa, Siemens Healthineers is in an excellent position to become the trusted digitalization partner for the entire region.”
