Europe's Telemedicine Clinic Uses Sectra's PACS

April 11, 2008 - Sectra PACS is used by radiologists at Telemedicine Clinic, Europe’s center for radiology service improvement and remote reading of radiology images, for reviewing and processing digital radiology images.

Sectra PACS is designed to handle large datasets in a distributed reading scenario, with images acquired at one hospital or clinic and read at another location, either from a radiologist’s home office or from another hospital. Dynamic data reduction allows users to work from remote locations, having the ability to handle networks of poor quality.

Barcelona-based TMC, reportedly Europe’s largest teleradiology canter, was set up in 2002 to support public hospitals and to meet the increasing demand for radiology expertise in European regions where a scarcity of medical specialists has caused problems in the delivery of healthcare services. Over 80 sub-specialist radiologists are working remotely in a Europe-wide competence network, reviewing examinations on assignment from public healthcare providers throughout Europe. More than 100,000 radiology examinations, mainly complex MRI and CT scans, are reviewed annually through TMC’s network.
