syngo.via - CT Calcium Scoring

syngo.via® CT Calcium Scoring syngo.via CT CaScoring is used in the evaluation of calcified plaques in the coronary arteries. The software supports the calculation of the Agatston equivalent score, the volume score, calcium mass, and the number of calcified lesions. 1. From the Patient Worklist, load an appropriate data set into the CT Calcium Scoring Work- flow: • If the examination has been correctly mapped, double click to load • If manual mapping is required, right-click the examination and select Open With > CT CaScoring 2. Before lesions can be scored, the scoring table must be initialized. Click the scoring table or – in the mini toolbar – click a vessel scoring icon. The scoring table is automatically filled with zeros, and calcified structures are highlighted in pink. Artery Lesions Volume / mm3 Equiv.

Scroll through the images until you find a coronary calcification. With the desired lesion type selected, click on the lesion or draw a region of interest (ROI) around the lesion. Ad- jacent voxels in neighboring slices are also included. Lesions can be allocated to two dif- ferent vessels if desired. 1,2 6. Findings based on the Agatston score are automatically populated to the table as well as the Findings Navigator, and they are automatically saved. Additional details can be found and edited in the Finding Details. Individual findings can be selected and copied to the clipboard using CTRL + C.
