LINKÖPING, Sweden and SHELTON, Connecticut, January 10, 2019 /PRNewswire/ --

International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company

Sectra (STO: SECT B) will install its enterprise breast imaging solution throughout the fifteen North Carolina-based breast centers of Charlotte Radiology. Upon project completion, radiologists will experience enhanced workflow productivity through multi-modality viewing on one workstation with the end goal of improved cancer care.
 

"Even in an ever-evolving industry, our practice is thriving," says Deborah Agisim, MD, Chief of Mammography for Charlotte Radiology. "Specifically, our breast imaging program is viewed as a national leader in the field, optimizing new technologies while continuing to elevate patient care. We could not achieve these successes without key partners and tools that maximize our efficiencies like those offered by Sectra."

Sectra PACS displays ultrasound and MRI images side-by-side with digital mammograms and digital breast tomosynthesis exams, facilitating comparison of current and prior images according to radiologist preference. Radiologists at all eight reading locations will have the ability to workload balance ensuring timely and efficient reporting turnaround times for their mammography patients.

Charlotte Radiology, a founding partner of US Radiology, owns and operates 15 breast centers, a mobile breast center, two vein centers, two interventional radiology sites and jointly owns five free-standing imaging centers. Their 100+ subspecialized radiologists read more than 1 million studies annually for 14 hospitals, 30 imaging centers and a multitude of healthcare providers.

The breast imaging contract was signed in November. Sectra breast imaging is a component of Sectra's scalable and modular enterprise imaging portfolio, which can be extended to other image-intense departments such as pathology, cardiology and orthopaedics.

HIMSS 2019 Sectra's solution for enterprise imaging, including breast imaging, will be showcased at HIMSS in Orlando on February 11-15. Book a meeting with Sectra at HIMSS to learn more >>
