Co-operation across hospital and regional boundaries results in great efficiency gains. Sectra RIS/PACS is a performance solution for wide area radiology – enabling efficient workload sharing across multiple sites, even for very large image stacks over strained networks. Built on the unique Sectra RapidConnect technology, it allows radiologists to work from anywhere that offers reasonable Internet access, and share images and information between multiple locations with ease. This way, Sectra RIS/PACS provides the opportunity to cope with ever-expanding challenges such as increased financial pressure, shortage of resources as well as increasing data volumes.
At RSNA 2009, Sectra highlights product news that further strengthens Sectra’s cross-enterprise capabilities within radiology and mammography:
• With improved volume visualization functionality, Sectra focuses on communication and makes exploratory visualization available for general usage. Fully integrated into the PACS workstation and designed to increase review efficiency and result communication, this powerful functionality provides physicians with value-added imaging data at the point of care and improves physician workflow. It supports the radiologist in communicating with the referring physicians by providing excellent tools to explain and present important details and findings in a quick and easy way.
• With the launch of a new diagnostic mammography workstation, Sectra now provides a mammography reading platform based on its new RapidConnect technology. These dedicated mammography workstations feature efficiency boosters such as the ergonomic keypad and advanced automatic hanging protocols for maximized throughput, fully supporting the requirements of the mammography department. The ability to enable true remote reading, with handling of vast image volumes makes this the ultimate solution for high efficiency mammography operations, in screening and clinical use environments.
• With embedded tools and functionality, Sectra RIS continues to drive radiologist productivity to the next level. By delivering a single desktop reporting environment and the ability to monitor critical tasks and events in real-time, radiologists can manage patient data and daily workflow across the enterprise, from wherever they want, while significantly increasing efficiency. Versatile enough to manage workflow for the entire enterprise today - and flexible enough to meet the changing needs tomorrow.
