BreastScreen Victoria, part of the Australian national breast cancer screening program, is conducting a three-year pilot project to explore the feasibility of a move to digital mammography. A system for managing and archiving digital breast images from the IT and medical-technology company Sectra will be used in this project.
The first phases of the project, known as the Rural Broadband Digital Mammography Project, have now been successfully implemented and two screening and assessment services have been converted to a digital operating environment.
The project started in April 2005 when BreastScreen Victoria was awarded funding from the State and Commonwealth Governments for a pilot project using digital mammography imaging systems in its Mobile Screening Service. Following evaluation, Sectra was chosen to deliver the PACS for the project. Sectra’s system will be integrated with BreastScreen Victoria’s patient information system and thereby provide conditions for a more efficient workflow.
