Sectra at ECR 2016

Given radiology’s central role in the patient pathway, radiology efficiency and the ability to communicate and collaborate on actionable reports are key for patient outcomes. This is particularly important in cancer care as diagnoses are often time-critical, the cases are complex, and the treatment chain typically involves multiple specialists. At ECR, we showcased our view of patient-centered cancer care and demonstrate how we support radiology in exceeding the expectations of referring physicians and their patients.

In our booth we demonstrated exciting news and products within a number of important areas where radiology can improve cancer care:

  • Radiology reading efficiency

    Sectra PACS is designed for a high production environment with stability and usability in focus. Highlights include functions to speed up oncology workflows such as anatomical linking and support for reviewing complex multiparametric MRI studies such as MRI Breast, Female Pelvis and Prostate. The latest release also has improved support for hybrid modalities within Nuclear Medicine. Sectra PACS also features world-leading functionality for breast imaging workflows. News includes integration with Volpara to enable driving workflows based on breast density.

  • Timely and actionable reports

    Sectra's reporting module is developed with complex oncology cases in mind. It facilitates overview of relevant priors together with the current request and report text. It also offers support for resident workflows and embedded links to images in the report. All in all, this increases radiology efficiency and the ability to communicate and collaborate on actionable reports..

  • Integrated diagnostics

    The digitization of pathology is an enabler and a prerequisite for increased collaboration across specialties. Sectra's solution for digital pathology is built on the same platform as our radiology PACS enabling bi-directional sharing of images and reports, which creates a transparency across cancer care pathways. This transparency allows for correlation of findings and provide a broader view of patient disease for physicians to conclude more accurate diagnosis and treatment decisions.

  • Efficient multi-disciplinary team meetings

    Sectra's solutions for radiology and pathology both include functionality for preparing and presenting at multidiscipline team meetings. The joint platform enables pathologists and radiologists to add images to the same list during the actual review work. The annotations and image settings performed during the review would then be applied automatically, streamlining the preparation workflow. During the presentation, radiologist and pathologist can use the same system to show images, annotations and administrate follow up tasks. At RSNA, we will demonstrate our existing tools for Multi-Disciplinary Team meetings, but also ideas for future product development..

  • Consolidated patient overview

    Sectra offers solutions for capturing, storing and accessing virtually all images, video, audio and documents. Sectra VNA allows you to consolidate image handling, while ensuring clinical workflow efficiency, growth management and business continuity.

  • Cross-enterprise workflow

    Sectra's offering within cross-enterprise features products and services that facilitate cooperation between hospitals on a point-to-point, regional or even national scale. The solutions enable efficient sharing and collaboration of both workload and competencies, thus facilitating more efficient use of resources, reducing lead times and improving diagnostic quality.

  • Simplified dose management

    Developed in close collaboration with physicists and proven in clinical use since 2008, Sectra DoseTrack is a web-based, flexible, and easy-to-use tool to monitor patient radiation doses and ensure that they are kept as low as reasonably achievable. .

  • Early detection of osteoporosis - as part of mammography screening and cancer treatment follow-up

    With a single, standard X-ray image of the hand, acquired on your mammography modality or any other x-ray equipment, it is possible to measure women’s bone health (Bone Mineral Density, BMD). The test calculates the risk for future fractures with the highest precision in the market offering women the opportunity of a better quality of life. It takes about 30 seconds to perform and is fully integrated into the mammography workflow.

Article: Four areas where radiology can improve cancer care

We spoke with key opinion leaders from the Netherlands, Sweden, the UK, and the US to better understand the changes affecting radiology, and listened as they weighed in on the most important challenges and developments in the field.

Four strategically important areas emerged where radiology can bring about better cancer care.
