November 17, 2011 — At RSNA 2011 in Chicago, Sectra will showcase support for the display and review of breast tomosynthesis images in its Breast Imaging Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS).
Tomosynthesis is an emerging technology within breast imaging. Since most PACS do not support images of this type, a dedicated modality workstation is usually needed in order to read tomosynthesis images. With Sectra's solution, mammography clinics can include reading of tomosynthesis images in their regular reading workflow, which will significantly contribute to increased efficiency.
Mammography imaging information technology (IT) is one of Sectra’s niche markets. The Breast Imaging PACS features true multimodality capabilities and offers instant access to numerous advanced diagnostic tools in a single diagnostic workstation. Regardless of modality or vendor, all breast images are automatically aligned and displayed side-by-side in the same size and dimension.
