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: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Hochpräzise Verschaltung in der Hirnrinde

Es ist noch immer weitgehend unbekannt, wie die komplexen neuronalen Netzwerke im Gehirn aufgebaut sind. Insbesondere in der Hirnrinde der Säugetiere, wo Sehen, Denken und Orientierung berechnet werden, sind die Regeln, nach denen die Nervenzellen miteinander verschaltet sind, nur unzureichend erforscht. Wissenschaftler um Moritz Helmstaedter vom Max-Planck-Institut für Hirnforschung in Frankfurt am Main und Helene Schmidt vom Bernstein-Zentrum der Humboldt-Universität in Berlin haben nun in dem Teil der Großhirnrinde, der für die räumliche Orientierung zuständig ist, ein überraschend präzises Verschaltungsmuster der Nervenzellen entdeckt.

Wie die Forscher in Nature berichten (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005), haben die...

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Wundermaterial Graphen: Gewölbt wie das Polster eines Chesterfield-Sofas

Graphen besitzt extreme Eigenschaften und ist vielseitig verwendbar. Mit einem Trick lassen sich sogar die Spins im Graphen kontrollieren. Dies gelang einem HZB-Team schon vor einiger Zeit: Die Physiker haben dafür eine Lage Graphen auf einem Nickelsubstrat aufgebracht und Goldatome dazwischen eingeschleust. Im Fachblatt 2D Materials zeigen sie nun, warum dies sich derartig stark auf die Spins auswirkt. Graphen kommt so auch als Material für künftige Informationstechnologien infrage, die auf der Verarbeitung von Spins als Informationseinheiten basieren.

Graphen ist wohl die exotischste Form von Kohlenstoff: Alle Atome sind untereinander nur in der Ebene verbunden und bilden ein Netz mit sechseckigen Maschen,...
