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: Mit Diamanten den Eigenschaften zweidimensionaler Magnete auf der Spur

Physikern der Universität Basel ist es erstmals gelungen, die magnetischen Eigenschaften von atomar dünnen Van-der-Waals-Materialien auf der Nanometerskala zu messen. Mittels Diamant-Quantensensoren konnten sie die Stärke von Magnetfeldern an einzelnen Atomlagen aus Chromtriiodid ermitteln. Zudem haben sie eine Erklärung für die ungewöhnlichen magnetischen Eigenschaften des Materials gefunden. Die Zeitschrift «Science» hat die Ergebnisse veröffentlicht.

Der Einsatz von zweidimensionalen Van-der-Waals-Materialien verspricht Innovationen in zahlreichen Bereichen. Wissenschaftler weltweit untersuchen immer neue...

Im Focus: Unprecedented insight into two-dimensional magnets using diamond quantum sensors

For the first time, physicists at the University of Basel have succeeded in measuring the magnetic properties of atomically thin van der Waals materials on the nanoscale. They used diamond quantum sensors to determine the strength of the magnetization of individual atomic layers of the material chromium triiodide. In addition, they found a long-sought explanation for the unusual magnetic properties of the material. The journal Science has published the findings.

The use of atomically thin, two-dimensional van der Waals materials promises innovations in numerous fields in science and technology. Scientists around the...

Im Focus: Volle Fahrt voraus für SmartEEs auf der Automotive Interiors Expo 2019

Flexible, organische und gedruckte Elektronik erobert den Alltag. Die Wachstumsprognosen verheißen wachsende Märkte und Chancen für die Industrie. In Europa beschäftigen sich Top-Einrichtungen und Unternehmen mit der Forschung und Weiterentwicklung dieser Technologien für die Märkte und Anwendungen von Morgen. Der Zugang seitens der KMUs ist dennoch schwer. Das europäische Projekt SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing arbeitet an der Etablierung eines europäischen Innovationsnetzwerks, das sowohl den Zugang zu Kompetenzen als auch die Unterstützung der Unternehmen bei der Übernahme von Innovationen und das Voranschreiten bis zur Kommerzialisierung unterstützt.

Sie umgibt uns und begleitet uns fast unbewusst durch den Alltag – gedruckte Elektronik. Sie beginnt bei smarten Labels oder RFID-Tags in der Kleidung,...

Im Focus: Full speed ahead for SmartEEs at Automotive Interiors Expo 2019

Flexible, organic and printed electronics conquer everyday life. The forecasts for growth promise increasing markets and opportunities for the industry. In Europe, top institutions and companies are engaged in research and further development of these technologies for tomorrow's markets and applications. However, access by SMEs is difficult. The European project SmartEEs - Smart Emerging Electronics Servicing works on the establishment of a European innovation network, which supports both the access to competences as well as the support of the enterprises with the assumption of innovations and the progress up to the commercialization.

It surrounds us and almost unconsciously accompanies us through everyday life - printed electronics. It starts with smart labels or RFID tags in clothing, we...

Im Focus: Neuer LED-Leuchtstoff spart Energie

Das menschliche Auge ist für Grün besonders empfindlich, für Blau und Rot hingegen weniger. Chemiker um Hubert Huppertz von der Universität Innsbruck haben nun einen neuen roten Leuchtstoff entwickelt, dessen Licht vom Auge gut wahrgenommen wird. Damit lässt sich die Lichtausbeute von weißen LEDs um rund ein Sechstel steigern, was die Energieeffizienz von Beleuchtungssystemen deutlich verbessern kann.

Leuchtdioden oder LEDs können nur Licht einer bestimmten Farbe erzeugen. Mit unterschiedlichen Verfahren zur Farbmischung lässt sich aber auch weißes Licht...
