Prostate MR on syngo.via

Siemens Healthineers
**Currently only available with Siemens Healthineers' syngo.via**
Siemens Healthineers Prostate MR on syngo.via supports prostate MRI reading and reporting. By deploying artificial intelligence, Prostate MR assists in the interpretation of multiparametric Prostate MRI. The deep neural networks of Prostate MR are designed to aid the detection and classification of prostate lesions and generate a pre-populated report. The results can be exported as a RTSS object which is then used in TRUS-guided biopsy by the urologist.
The product is not commercially available in some countries, e.g. the US. Due to regulatory reasons the future availability cannot be guaranteed. Please contact your local Siemens Healthineers organization for further details.
