Siemens wins 2010 Techno-College Innovation Award

eHEALTH Bureau The European Association of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery (EACTS) presented its Techno-College Innovation Award for 2010 to Siemens Healthcare for its development of the syngo Aortic ValveGuide software. The award celebrates innovations which represent advances in cardiac surgery. This is the first time that Siemens has won the award. The new imaging application software helps cardiologists and heart surgeons to prepare for and perform transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Using CT-like sectional images from the angiography system, syngo Aortic ValveGuide automatically segments a 3D image of the aortic root and highlights anatomical reference points such as the coronary ostia. This 3D image is superimposed with the two-dimensional fluoroscopy images, which allows the physician to orient himself in real time and in three dimensions within the patient’s body while navigating the new aortic valve to its intended position.
