Enterprise Image Management
Sectra offers solutions to achieve a patient-centric workflow across an entire enterprise. The solutions handle virtually any image, sound or video sequence created during patient diagnostics. The offering includes secure and cost-efficient capture, vendor-neutral and storage agnostic archiving, as well as a single point of access to and efficient means for sharing all patient data without compromising patient integrity. 

Cross-Enterprise Workflow
Sectra's offering within cross-enterprise workflow features products and services that facilitate cooperation between hospitals on a point-to-point, regional or national scale. The solutions enable sharing and collaboration of both workload and competencies, aimed at facilitating efficient use of resources, reducing lead times and improving diagnostic quality. The cross-enterprise solutions address the different levels of co-operation healthcare organizations.

Digital Pathology
Sectra is part of a large research project aiming to design the optimal workflow for digital pathology. While there are differences between radiology and pathology operations, they are exploring overall similarity and the potential for cross-disciplinary synergy. The project is headed by Sectra’s academic partner CMIV (Center for Medical Image Science and Visualization) and also includes nine Swedish county councils, which provide healthcare to four million people. The results of this research will be integrated into Sectra’s pathology product development. 

Radiation Dose Monitoring
Sectra DoseTrack is a web-based solution for radiation dose monitoring that gathers dose data from all necessary sources within the imaging department. Analysis capabilities for dose optimization assist in the identification of needed actions such as changing modalities for specific procedures, staff training to optimize the use of modalities or imaging protocol revisions. Consideration of patient size and demographics allow for effective organ dose calculations and patient risk assessment.
