June 17, 2010 – The Swedish company Sectra has been awarded a contract to install a dedicated Breast Imaging PACS and three MicroDose Mammography units for use in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The new integrated mammography solution will provide radiologists with the ability to access digital images and information. This way, the screening and reading centers in Canberra will be able to exchange data and share workload in a secure way.
In the Australian Capital Territory and southeast New South Wales, BreastScreen ACT offers free screening services to asymptomatic women between 50 and 69 years old, under the program run by BreastScreen Australia. Between 2005 and 2006, over 1.5 million Australian women participated in this program.
