Sectra Signs Medical Imaging Research Agreement With University Hospitals in Cleveland

October 28, 2011 — International medical imaging IT company Sectra announced the signing of a multi-year Master Research Agreement with University Hospitals (UH) in Cleveland. UH and Sectra will collaborate to develop solutions and enhancements in medical imaging; their goals consist of improving patient care, delivering better healthcare at lower costs, and boosting the efficiency and productivity of radiologists.

Possible areas of collaboration include management tools to improve radiologists' productivity, as well as further development of the Sectra Visualization Table. The table is a large medical multi-touch display designed for viewing and manipulating 3-D images of the human body.

"This research agreement provides the framework to collaboratively work on projects to better serve our patients through improvements in radiological imaging and remote interpretation workflow with centralized archiving," says Pablo R. Ros, M.D., Theodore J. Castele University professor and chairman, University Hospitals Case Medical Center.

Sectra currently provides UH with its Sectra PACS imaging system; the hospital utilizes it to display, store and distribute more than 700,000 radiology exams annually to 22 different sites and more than 3,000 users. Sectra PACS is also integrated with UH's Emergency Medical Record (EMR) system.
