FDA clears Syngo Virtual Cockpit tech from Siemens Healthineers

Siemens Healthineers announced that the FDA cleared its Syngo Virtual Cockpit, a private, secure communication platform.

The platform enables real-time image visualization, acquisition and collaboration between healthcare professionals across multiple sites. Siemens Healthineers designed the software so users can connect to CT, MR, PET and a number of other scanners. Scanners include those made by Siemens Healthineers and from other equipment vendors, regardless of location.

According to a news release, Syngo marks the first and only multi-vendor remote scanning software to win FDA clearance as a medical device.

With the software, radiologic technologists can use live audio, video and chat functionalities. They can conduct scans or provide support for up to three different remote scanners simultaneously. The company said it can help address the ongoing technologist shortage and standardize care with diagnostic consistency.
