March 12, 2015 — Sectra announced successful completion of testing of the Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) profiles MAMMO and DBT (digital breast tomosynthesis) at the North American IHE Connectathon, Jan. 26-30 in Cleveland. The testing was done using Sectra PACS (picture archive and communication system), which implements the Image Display and Image Manager actors of these profiles.

Sectra Breast Imaging PACS is a Web-based workstation featuring advanced diagnostic tools, including integrated computer-aided detection (CAD) and reporting, which offers a single-system reading environment for mammographers. True multimodality capabilities allow images from any modality — such as ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or breast tomosynthesis — to be displayed side-by-side with the mammograms.
