Siemens Healthineers inks long-term collaborative deal with Florida Hospital

Siemens (NYSE:SI) Healthineers today announced a multi-phase agreement with Florida Hospital to develop outcomes-based collaborative projects. During the first phase of the collaborative deal, the two groups will look to incorporate cardiac computed tomography angiography into Florida Hospital’s clinical protocol. “Siemens Healthineers has a longstanding creative backbone, and they’re always looking to create new solutions and innovative ways of delivering care across the health continuum. I’m really excited that we’re addressing affordability and accessibility by creating cutting-edge health care that connects with people in a new and different way,” Florida Hospital senior exec officer Eric Stevens said in a prepared statement. “Clearly, Florida Hospital is an innovative organization that is pushing the envelope to advance the way in which health care should be delivered in the future. Siemens Healthineers is pleased to collaborate with such a forward-thinking organization,” Siemens Healthineers diagnostic imaging senior VP Michael Wendt said in a press release. The project will culminate in a six-month study which looks to optimally assess and manage intermediate-risk patients who arrive at Celebration Health’s emergency department with acute chest pain, Siemens said. The study will use Celebration Health’s Somatom definition flash dual source CT system from Siemens Healthineers, the German industrial conglom...

CONCLUSIONS: Our study confirms that in North America the prevalence of AAS in those undergoing advanced imaging is low. The ADD-RS in this population has a low specificity. A lack of defined inclusion criteria and a low specificity limits the application of this rule in practice. This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

We have established an open, ongoing dialogue with the medical directors of multiple payers and specialty benefits managers (SBMs) across the United States. Serial dialogue with the medical director of eviCore Healthcare helped to facilitate a very favorable policy1 decision in which coronary CT angiography (CCTA) is covered for 16 different indications, including as a first-line test for symptomatic patients with low or intermediate pre-test risk for CAD.

ConclusionsTranscatheter arterial chemoembolization or transcatheter arterial embolization via the inferior phrenic artery in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma was relatively safe. Shoulder pain was the most frequent complication, and required only conservative treatment. There was no clear connection between pleural effusion or basal atelectasis and collateral circulation from the right inferior phrenic artery to the pulmonary artery depicted on angiography, computed tomography during angiography or post-procedure computed tomography.

Rationale: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) is a severe complication of antiphospholipid syndrome (APS). Once diagnosed, the recommendation for the treatment of CTEPH is long-term anticoagulation and pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE). However, cardiac surgeons apply PTE cautiously for these patients, as there is an increased risk of perioperative complications. Here, we present the curative case of a patient with severe APS-associated CTEPH treated with PTE. Patient concerns: A 29-year-old man presented with chest pain, decreased exercise capacity, dyspnoea, and haemoptysis. Diagnoses: He w...

He complained of the left shoulder and chest pain after regaining consciousness. On arrival, he showed left bloody otorrhea, left chest tenderness, and a limited range of motion due to the left shoulder pain. Emergency chest roentgenography revealed multiple left rib fractures, left clavicular fracture with decreased radiolucency in the left lung field, suggesting lung contusion. W...

A 36-year-old, previously asymptomatic male with no history of previous trauma or intervention, presented to emergency with acute tearing chest pain radiating to back. Preliminary investigations including ECG and cardiac bio-markers were within normal limits. The patient subsequently underwent a computed tomography angiography (CTA) of the chest and abdomen to establish the diagnosis.

Conclusion If patients present with a weak or absent dorsalis pedis artery pulse, abnormal ABPI ratio, and no response after a pain-blocking procedure, the clinician should consider the possibility of severe arterial occlusion of the legs. We suggest that the differential diagnosis of obstructive arterial lesions of the legs from lumbar degenerative diseases is important to prevent unnecessary invasive surgical treatment of the lumbar spine.

DISCUSSION: To the best of our knowledge, this study is the first to correlate the levels of endogenous NPY in supratentorial CSF with cognitive outcome in good-grade sSAH patients. Excessive NPY release into CSF may have a short-term influence on the pathogenesis of neuropsychological deficits. The impact of cerebrovascular manipulation on NPY release has to be further elucidated.
