March 10, 2016 — Sectra AB announced that an interface has been created between its digital pathology solution and PALGA U-DPS, a pathology laboratory application within the nationwide network and registry of histopathology and cytopathology in the Netherlands. This enables pathologists to work completely digitally when performing primary diagnostics of histology slides. The interface was created as part of a strong cooperation with Deutsche Telekom Healthcare Solutions (Netherlands).

To enable healthcare providers to give better, faster and more patient-centered care, Sectra offers systems and services for comprehensive handling and storage of all types of medical images, primarily for large image diagnostics units, such as radiology, mammography and pathology, but also in other departments where medical imaging material is used. Medical images for cancer diagnostics run as a common thread through Sectra’s offering.

Within pathology, Sectra provides a complete solution for primary diagnostics. The solution includes archiving and storage solutions together with high-end review workstations. It allows pathologists to make their diagnoses and reports with higher precision and less time spent per case. Sectra’s solution for digital pathology is built on the same platform as the company’s radiology picture archiving and communication system (PACS), the solution for managing radiology images. With a shared technical platform, images from both of the diagnostic specialties can be stored and displayed in a single system. This enables deeper cooperation between radiologists and pathologists and facilitates, for example, multidisciplinary rounds, which is a step in integrated diagnostics.

European and Scandinavian pathology departments are in the process of digitizing their work, but nonetheless, only a few hospitals have implemented full-scale digital pathology solutions. In the United States, digital pathology for primary diagnostics is still pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval.
