Digital Experience Hall

Digitalisation has been a buzzword at radiology congresses for years, as well as the subject of some radical predictions. We’ve heard how it’s going to change the field of radiology, transforming the duties and scope of radiologists’ work. But what exactly does this mean in practice, and how will the application of digitalisation look like in real life?

The Siemens Healthineers Digital Experience Hall at ECR 2019 is the chance to get ahead of the curve on digitalization. To discuss this important topic with experts from science and industry, to get up to speed with exciting research and technologies, as well as to find out what digitalisation really means.

We invite you to discuss the following topics with us:

Artificial Intelligence
Surpass human capabilities with machine learning.

Augmented & Virtual Reality
Interact with immersive, intuitive digital systems.

Boost trust in research through decentralisation and transparency.

Big Data & Analytics
Optimize processes and make better-founded decisions.

The Internet of Things
Integrate your digital world with ubiquitous sensors, computing and tracking.

Benefit from intuitive and guided human-machine interfaces.

Risks & Limits
Navigate ethics, security, privacy, accountability and more.

We’re looking forward meeting you live at the Siemens Healthineers Digital Experience Hall. Stay tuned for updates in the next weeks.

Ultrasound Lunch Symposium

Ultrasound Room M2
12:30 - 13:30 pm | 1 March 2019

Anders NilssonPrecision Ultrasound for an increasingly XXL population using image Fusion, CEUS and improved ultrasound penetration

As an increasingly large proportion of our patient population can be classified as obese, finding, characterizing and potentially treating focal lesions is routinely becoming more difficult. Diagnostic tools, such as high quality contrast enhanced ultrasound and multi-modality fusion, in conjunction with improved ultrasound penetration, can help us personalize ultrasound to meet this challenge.

CEUS diagnostic imaging in the paediatric population

An overview of current best practice of ultrasound in infants and children referencing adult patients where appropriate. Sonography is the imaging modality of choice in paediatrics because it provides a cross-sectional depiction of anatomical structures with high spatial and temporal resolution and is relatively robust handling restless and active patients. No other method can provide comparable diagnostic information. Indications for paediatric sonography include: screening, diagnosis and follow up exams. Contrast enhanced ultrasound can be used to enhance diagnostic possibilities. The two main indications for contrast enhanced ultrasound in children are the assessment of vesicoureteral reflux disease and the characterization of focal lesions, particularly in the liver.

Martin DaniauxNew Horizons in Breast Ultrasound

In conjunction with the superb spatial resolution of high frequency B-mode ultrasound and highly sensitive colour Doppler, advanced applications like Strain and Shear Wave Elastography provide clinicians with the tools necessary to deliver precision medicine. Strain Elastography can be used to classify a lesion according to specific recognized patterns. Shear Wave Elastography allows for the quantification of tissue stiffness by providing a velocity map which allows comparison of the shear wave velocities at multiple points. Using these three imaging modes (B-mode, Colour and Elastography) improves diagnostic confidence and may reduce the costs associated with unnecessary biopsies and improve the patient experience.

Results from the Breast Care Day 2019 are restricted and not for use in the US.

The statements by Siemens Healthineers' 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.The speakers receive or are employed by an institution that receives financial support from Siemens Healthineers for collaborations.
