syngo Lung CAD detects more lung nodules

syngo Lung CAD, the second generation of nodule detection software from Siemens received FDA approval letter.

Advanced diagnostic imaging possibilities demands advanced Computer-Aided Detection tools (CAD) that assist radiologists in the detection and the interpretation of diagnostic information. With syngo Lung CAD, Siemens just launched an improved device to detect solid lung nodules in thoracic CT examinations.
According to Siemens, `syngo Lung CAD adds significant new capabilities to the syngo LungCare CT application by increasing the medical professional´s ability to catch more pulmonary nodules during the review of CT studies with hundreds of images.´

The system is based on proprietary image processing and pattern recognition algorithms that have been trained on a large database of tharcic CT studies and detect a range of nodules sizes, starting at three millimeters in diameter.
