October 13, 2015 — At the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Sectra will showcase its view of patient-centered cancer care and demonstrate how it supports radiology in exceeding the expectations of referring physicians and their patients.

In booth 6113 the company will demonstrate news and products within a number of important areas where radiology can improve cancer care:

Radiology reading efficiency

Sectra PACS (picture archiving and communication system) is designed for a high production environment with stability and usability in focus. Highlights include functions to speed up oncology workflows such as anatomical linking and support for reviewing complex multiparametric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies such as MRI breast, female pelvis and prostate. The latest release also has improved support for hybrid modalities within nuclear medicine. Sectra PACS also features functionality for breast imaging workflows. News includes integration with Volpara to enable driving workflows based on breast density.

Timely and actionable reports
Sectra's reporting module is developed with complex oncology cases in mind. It facilitates overview of relevant priors together with the current request and report text. It also offers support for resident workflows and embedded links to images in the report. All in all, this increases radiology efficiency and the ability to communicate and collaborate on actionable reports.

Integrated diagnostics

The digitization of pathology is an enabler and a prerequisite for increased collaboration across specialties. Sectra's solution for digital pathology is built on the same platform as its radiology PACS, enabling bi-directional sharing of images and reports, which creates a transparency across cancer care pathways. This transparency allows for correlation of findings and provide a broader view of patient disease for physicians to conclude more accurate diagnosis and treatment decisions.

Efficient multidisciplinary team meetings

Sectra's solutions for radiology and pathology both include functionality for preparing and presenting at multidiscipline team meetings. The joint platform enables pathologists and radiologists to add images to the same list during the actual review work. The annotations and image settings performed during the review would then be applied automatically, streamlining the preparation workflow. During the presentation, radiologist and pathologist can use the same system to show images, annotations and administrate follow up tasks.

Consolidated patient overview

Sectra offers solutions for capturing, storing and accessing virtually all images, video, audio and documents. Sectra VNA (vendor neutral archive) allows you to consolidate image handling, while ensuring clinical workflow efficiency, growth management and business continuity.

Cross-enterprise workflow

Sectra's offering within cross-enterprise 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.

Simplified dose management

Developed in close collaboration with physicists and proven in clinical use since 2008, Sectra DoseTrack is a Web-based, flexible and easy-to-use tool to monitor patient radiation doses and ensure they are kept as low as reasonably achievable.

Early detection of osteoporosis as part of mammography screening and cancer treatment follow-up

With a single standard X-ray image of the hand, acquired on your mammography modality or any other X-ray equipment, it is possible to measure women’s bone health (bone mineral density, BMD). The test calculates the risk for future fractures with high precision. It takes about 30 seconds to perform and is fully integrated into the mammography workflow.
