News Release - November 11, 2011
Sectra Launches Support for Breast Tomosynthesis Images in PACSAt RSNA 2011 in Chicago , international medical imaging IT company, Sectra (NASDAQ OMX Stockholm: SECT B), will showcase support for the display and review of breast Tomosynthesis images in Sectra Breast Imaging PACS.
SHELTON, Connecticut , November 11, 2011 -- (Healthcare Sales & Marketing Network) -- Tomosynthesis is an emerging technology within breast imaging. Since most PACS do not support images of this type, a dedicated modality workstation is usually needed in order to read Tomosynthesis images. With Sectra's solution, mammography clinics will now be able to include reading of Tomosynthesis images in their regular reading workflow, which will significantly contribute to increased efficiency.
"Sectra is one of the first imaging vendors to offer a Breast Imaging PACS with support for reading Tomosynthesis images. This underlines our commitment to transforming customer needs into efficient medical-imaging IT solutions," says Anders Granlund , product manager at Sectra.
Mammography imaging IT is one of the niche market in which Sectra holds a leading position. Sectra Breast Imaging PACS features true multi-modality capabilities and offers instant access to all the advanced diagnostic tools needed by a radiologist in a single diagnostic workstation. Regardless of modality or vendor, all breast images are automatically aligned and displayed side-by-side in the same size and dimension.
