“Our agreement with CT Frank Technology is the starting point in establishing distribution channels for our Sectra Visualization Table in Asia,” says Lars Wettergren Vice President, Global Partner Sales at Sectra’s medical operations.
Southeast Asia is major market, where significant investments are being made in modernizing the healthcare sector. With subsidiaries in Malaysia, Thailand, China and Vietnam, CT Frank Technology has delivered visualization solutions for various clients, including healthcare facilities and schools, since 2004. CT Frank Technology will install the first visualization table at University Malaya Hospital in Kuala Lumpur, where it will be used in medical education and research.
“We consider that the Sectra Visualization Table offers great potential and have already noted interest from medical institutions and health ministries,” says Louis Tan, Business Development Manager at CT Frank Technology. “The main benefit of the table is that it enhances the quality of medical education, although we also see many other valuable areas of use.”
With Sectra Visualization Table the users can interact collaboratively with the real-size 3D images generated by CT and MRI scanners. For example, they can visualize different kinds of tissues and cut through sections with a virtual knife. The large monitor and intuitive touch interface support group discussion between medical teams. The visualization table makes a significant contribution to medical education, especially in training of interns and residents.
The visualization table is powered by a tailored Sectra PACS workstation. Sectra’s patented visualization techniques also allow immediate display of datasets of extreme size, such as high-resolution, full-body scans.
