Sectra Enterprise Imaging for Cardiology

The Sectra cardiology solution offers cardiologists a single workstation for efficient review of the most common cardiology procedures. Automated clinical tools and advanced analysis tools, such as automated quantifications of volume, strain and ejection fractions, are seamlessly integrated into the cardiology workflow. Any measurements performed during case review can be directly imported to worksheets and reports, thus reducing the need for manual data entry. In addition, measurements within echo, vascular and cath lab procedures can be post-processed offline. This broad portfolio of advanced clinical tools, in combination with strong integration capabilities, enables the seamless consolidation of all cardiology imaging. All in all, Sectra’s cardiology solution increases review efficiency and improves collaboration with other disciplines.

The solution is vendor-neutral, enabling review from all diagnostic modalities. It supports the following procedures:

  • Echocardiography
  • Cardiac catheterization
  • Cardiac nuclear medicine
  • Cardiac MR
  • Cardiac CT
  • ECG management
