November 26, 2013 — Sectra is set to showcase several of its workflow efficiency products at the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013). The following details Sectra's product categories as well as its individual products:
 
Diagnostic imaging
Sectra’s diagnostic imaging, with radiology information systems (RIS) and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) at the core, is designed to shorten report turnaround times, enhance request and result distribution workflows and improve communication and dialog between radiology and referring units. Highlights in the most recent version of Sectra RIS/PACS include a complete PACS reporting module with voice recognition and server-based volume visualization with timesaving diagnostic tools for vessel analysis and bone segmentation.
 
Enterprise image management
Sectra’s enterprise image management provides secure and cost-efficient storage as well as a single point of access to and efficient means for sharing all patient data without compromising patient integrity. The offering includes a vendor neutral archiving (VNA) solution, Sectra Open Archive, which enables storage of medical images, film and sound clips from virtually any source, providing a complete medical record. The Sectra Open Archive improves the support for cardiology and endoscopy by enabling storage of file formats such as encapsulated PDFs and digital imaging ad communications in medicine (DICOM) MPEG-4 videos.
 
Cross-enterprise workflow
Sectra’s cross-enterprise workflow 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. The cross-enterprise solutions address the different levels of cooperation healthcare organizations may desire ranging from sharing of medical information to tightly integrated workflows.
 
Radiation dose monitoring
Sectra DoseTrack is a web-based dose monitoring solution that allows for monitoring of patient radiation doses and ensures they are kept as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA). Sectra DoseTrack automatically collects, stores and monitors data from all connected modalities, saving valuable time and facilitating analysis. Sectra DoseTrack is a certified American College of Radiology (ACR) software partner, approved to submit a hospital’s dose data to the U.S. Dose Index Registry. Sectra DoseTrack was honored with AuntMinnie’s Best New Radiology Software 2013.
 
Business analytics
Sectra's business analytics offering comprises Sectra DataWarehouse and a number of analysis tools that help streamline the workflow of radiology by providing tools for monitoring the production and performance of PACS and RIS, including analyses of Key Performance Indicators.
 
Sectra UserInfluence live at RSNA 2013

While electronic medical record systems have helped consolidate most patient data into one location, medical imaging IT systems has proved to be more difficult to replicate by large EMR vendors. This has made room in the market for third-party radiology IT vendors that allow easy integration with the larger EMRs like Epic and Cerner. This image shows Agfa's enterprise imaging system, leveraging its ability to be accessed anywhere with internet connection and pull images from radiology and surgery.
