Sectra has a complete enterprise imaging offering supporting the most image intense departments—radiology, pathology, cardiology and orthopaedics. At the trade show RSNA in Chicago (Nov 27 – Dec 1 2016) we showcased Sectra’s enterprise imaging solutions for radiology and mammography, as well as our offering for cross-enterprise image sharing.

Sectra PACS is designed for high-production environments with usability and availability in focus. Highlights include functions to speed up oncology workflows such as lesion tracking and anatomical linking. Our Advanced Visualization portfolio, fully integrated in Sectra PACS, also supports CT liver surgery planning, reviewing fusion images, as well as complex multiparametric MRI studies, such as MRI Breast, Female Pelvis and Prostate.
In addition to improving the diagnostic workflows, Sectra PACS supports teaching and quality improvements. The latest news in this area includes Peer Review workflow support.
Sectra PACS features world-leading functionality for efficient mammography screening and diagnostic breast imaging workflows. True vendor-neutral multi-modality capabilities enable display of breast images from any modality - including digital pathology - side by side with the mammograms. This gives a complete patient overview from one single work spot. Sectra Breast Imaging PACS supports fully integrated breast tomosyntesis reading as well as MRI integrated within the mammography workflow. It also features strong workflow management tools, allowing efficient hosting of tumor boards and workflows being driven based on breast density.
Combined with Sectra’s solutions for business analytics and dose monitoring, the users get a comprehensive breast imaging solution that truly drives efficiency and quality improvements.
News in the latest release include breast implant masking, further streamlined hanging protocols and an integrated Peer Review package.
Sectra's reporting module, developed with complex oncology cases in mind, ensures quick and easy access to relevant priors together with the current request and images. It also enables radiologists to document their findings in direct connection with the image review, with no extra mouse clicks. Support for structured reporting and rich reporting helps make radiology reports actionable and easy to interpret for referring physicians. The solution also supports resident workflows.
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 provides a broader view of patient disease for physicians to conclude more accurate diagnosis and treatment decisions.
Sectra's solutions for radiology and pathology both include functionality for preparing and presenting at multi-disciplinary 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, the radiologist and the pathologist can use the same system to show images, annotations and administrate follow-up tasks. At RSNA, Sectra will demonstrate existing tools for multi-disciplinary team meetings, but also ideas for future product development.
Sectra offers solutions for capturing, storing and accessing virtually all images, video, audio and documents. Sectra VNA consolidates image handling, while ensuring clinical workflow efficiency, growth management and business continuity. Sectra UniView enables easy access to the complete patient information, including pathology images, from anywhere in the enterprise.
Sectra's cross-enterprise platform facilitates health information exchange and cooperation even on national scale. The solutions enable efficient sharing and collaboration of images, workload and competencies, thus facilitating more efficient use of resources, reducing lead times, and improving diagnostic quality. News include the possibility easily share images with patients and others outside of the hospital environment.
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.
With a single, standard X-ray image of the hand, acquired on the 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 it is fully integrated into the mammography workflow.
Sectra offers a complete set of highly efficient pre-operative planning tools both for 2D and 3D images. The latter are especially valuable for planning complex trauma cases. Sectra’s solution enables orthopaedic surgeons to increase precision in planning and advance preparation for various scenarios, thereby avoiding stress, saving time and minimizing risk during surgery. The solution also creates a well-documented workflow to meet regulatory demands.
With the possibility of repeated interaction with virtual representations of real bodies rendered from clinical imaging throughout their education, students, residents and medical professionals are able to gain deeper understanding and insight into anatomy, and the functions and processes inside the body. Easy access to all types of medical images, including 3D renderings, provides the ability to demonstrate anatomical variations and - in combination with the possibility to study multiple cases - this contributes to enhanced medical education and clinical training.
Oncologists are becoming an increasingly important group of referring physicians for radiology to support. But how do oncologists perceive the service from radiology today, and what do they think radiology should do to further improve their service? We asked 50 oncologists.
