Primary Treatment for Stroke
Minimizing the time between initial symptoms and stroke treatment goes hand in hand with saving brain tissue or even the patient's life. Referring hospitals often provide diagnostic and therapeutic equipment for adequate primary care of stroke patients, but usually do not have dedicated stroke experts on staff. Telemedicinal equipment can compensate for this lack of critical medical expertise. With the help of a neurologist in a consulting hospital, this may allow for accurate diagnosis and early treatment in nonspecialized clinical environments, thus improving the prognosis of stroke patients substantially.
Siemens telestroke solutions provide you with the technology to exchange imaging data - even between different Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS). It enables the integration of small clinics' hospital IT with specialized centers, making diagnostic evaluation and treatment recommendations by stroke experts available at the referring hospital.
With the syngo product portfolio, Siemens provides you with streamlined and comprehensive tools for almost every aspect of single and multimodal clinical image evaluation, imaging workflow, and archiving:
With its efficient, flexible and intelligent applications, dedicated analysis algorithms and automated post processing, syngo.via¹ facilitates speedy and stroke-related image evaluation and diagnosis.
After initial evaluation of the images, syngo.plaza handles your imaging data and supports you in keeping your focus on stroke care by adapting to your working routine. It enables a quick overview and distribution of the patients imaging data within or outside the hospital².
Finally syngo.share³ is the smart VNA (vendor-neutral archives) for unified, patient-centric clinical image management and sharing. It helps you to efficiently share patient data with dedicated stroke experts - whether you need a second opinion or you do not have dedicated stroke experts on staff. Your partner can access the clinical information in a patient-centric view.
syngo applications follow open standards and provide built-in IHE integration (Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise). This enables a seamless exchange of data within hospitals and across the healthcare community along with easy access to patient data and pertinent clinical information.
