Product Syngo.x, Picture archiving and communication system
Syngo via is a software solution intended to be used for viewing, manipulation, communication, and storage of medical images. It can be used as a standalone device or together with a variety of cleared and unmodified syngo based software options. Syngo.via supports interpretation and evaluation of examinations within healthcare institutions, for example, in Radiology, Nuclear Medicine and Cardiology environments. The system is not intended for the displaying of digital mammography images for diagnosis in the U.S. The system is a software only medical device. It defines minimum requirements to the hardware it runs on. The hardware itself is not seen as a medical device and not in the scope of this 510(k) submission. It supports the physician in diagnosis and treatment planning. Syngo.via also supports storage of Structured DICOM Reports. In a comprehensive imaging suite syngo.via integrates Radiology Information Systems (RIS) to enable customer specific workflows. Syngo.via allows to use a variety of advanced applications (clinical applications) designed for syngo.via just as the predicate device syngo.x,(K092519,cleared on August 27, 2009). These applications are medical devices on their own rights and filed separately. They are not part of this 510(k) submission and not part of the syngo.via medical device. Syngo.via has a universal component called generic reader application which is part of this medical device and it allows no newly introduced imaging and post processing algorithms compared to the above mentioned predicate devices. Syngo.via is based on Windows. Due to special customer requirements and the clinical focus syngo.via can be configured in the same way as the predicate device with different combinations of syngo- or Windows -based software options and clinical applications which are intended to assist the physician in diagnosis and/or treatment planning. This includes commercially available post-processing software packages. Syngo.via Data Management ...ensures all authorized personnel fast and continuous access to radiological data. It's main functionality ranges from availability of images with regard to data security, open interfaces, storage media and central system administration, to provide a flexible storage hierarchy
