Diagnostic Imaging and Therapy
A fast, precise and reliable diagnosis
helps to find the right therapy and avoid unnecessary medical interventions.
Imaging is crucial to provide this vital information. Siemens offers the
entire spectrum of imaging systems for diagnosis and interventions. By
integrating imaging systems like computed tomography scanners or ultrasound
devices with laboratory diagnostics, and Healthcare IT solutions, Siemens is
helping to optimize clinical workflows and improve the quality (and costs)
Laboratory tests used in the identification of
disease or other conditions provide clinicians with the vital information
they need for the accurate diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of patients.
Siemens offers a broad portfolio of diagnostics solutions designed to
streamline workflow, enhance operational efficiency and support improved
patient care. By combining imaging and laboratory diagnostics with
Healthcare IT solutions, Siemens is reducing costs and supporting improved
and earlier diagnosis.
In healthcare, a vast amount of administrative and medical
data is being collected: medical histories, x-ray and other clinical images,
lab test results and much more. Healthcare IT solutions from Siemens are the
link between all the information necessary for optimized diagnosis and
therapy. They support the exchange of data and optimize clinical workflows.
The results are: improved quality of care at reduced costs.
