iCAD®, Inc. (Nasdaq: ICAD), an industryleading provider of Computer Aided Detection (CAD) solutions, and Siemens Medical Solutions, a world leader in medical imaging and information technology (IT) solutions, have announced that Siemens will offer iCAD’s TotalLook system as an option for use with its MAMMOMAT® NovationDR full-field digital mammography system, through Siemens global sales and distribution channels. TotalLook, introduced by iCAD at the end of 2005, provides customers with a comprehensive film-to-digital solution making it easier for women’s health centers to transition from film to digital mammography.

This new technology assists radiologists in comparing breast images year-to-year to detect subtle changes that may be indicative of breast cancer. Based on successful installations of iCAD systems with its customers, Siemens made the decision to offer the TotalLook system as an option for its digital mammography customers. Siemens also distributes iCAD’s Second Look Digital solution for computer aided detection of breast cancer.


TotalLook converts prior film images into a digital format for comparison with more recent images from digital mammography systems. It automatically adjusts the digitized images for correct display on Siemens’ MammoReportPlus softcopy reporting workstation. By providing radiologists with a “total look” at a patient’s multi-year mammograms, the solution helps detect subtle changes that may be indicative of breast cancer. In addition, it eliminates the need to shift back and forth from a light box to a digital workstation increasing workflow and improving productivity. The TotalLook solution has the capability to:

• Automatically retrieve and receive patient information from HL-7 or DICOM worklists • Digitize standard mammography films in 23 seconds • Capture the full fidelity of original film mammograms in each digitized image • Track and label records in industry-standard DICOM format • Send complete records to multiple DICOM destinations simultaneously • Display high-resolution digitized images on many DICOM workstations in any hanging protocol

Im Focus: Leichtbau serientauglich machen

Immer mehr Autobauer setzen auf Karosserieteile aus kohlenstofffaserverstärktem Kunststoff (CFK). Dennoch müssen Fertigungs- und Reparaturkosten weiter gesenkt werden, um CFK kostengünstig nutzbar zu machen. Das Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) hat daher zusammen mit der Volkswagen AG und fünf weiteren Partnern im Projekt HolQueSt 3D Laserprozesse zum automatisierten Besäumen, Bohren und Reparieren von dreidimensionalen Bauteilen entwickelt.

Automatisiert ablaufende Bearbeitungsprozesse sind die Grundlage, um CFK-Bauteile endgültig in die Serienproduktion zu bringen. Ausgerichtet an einem...

Im Focus: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Immunzellen helfen bei elektrischer Reizleitung im Herzen

Erstmals elektrische Kopplung von Muskelzellen und Makrophagen im Herzen nachgewiesen / Erkenntnisse könnten neue Therapieansätze bei Herzinfarkt und Herzrhythmus-Störungen ermöglichen / Publikation am 20. April 2017 in Cell

Makrophagen, auch Fresszellen genannt, sind Teil des Immunsystems und spielen eine wesentliche Rolle in der Abwehr von Krankheitserregern und bei der...

Im Focus: Tief im Inneren von M87

Die Galaxie M87 enthält ein supermassereiches Schwarzes Loch von sechs Milliarden Sonnenmassen im Zentrum. Ihr leuchtkräftiger Jet dominiert das beobachtete Spektrum über einen Frequenzbereich von 10 Größenordnungen. Aufgrund ihrer Nähe, des ausgeprägten Jets und des sehr massereichen Schwarzen Lochs stellt M87 ein ideales Laboratorium dar, um die Entstehung, Beschleunigung und Bündelung der Materie in relativistischen Jets zu erforschen. Ein Forscherteam unter der Leitung von Silke Britzen vom MPIfR Bonn liefert Hinweise für die Verbindung von Akkretionsscheibe und Jet von M87 durch turbulente Prozesse und damit neue Erkenntnisse für das Problem des Ursprungs von astrophysikalischen Jets.

Supermassereiche Schwarze Löcher in den Zentren von Galaxien sind eines der rätselhaftesten Phänomene in der modernen Astrophysik. Ihr gewaltiger...
