Sectra has secured the first order for the software SyMRI Suite from the Institute of Forensic Medicine at the University of Bern. The software will enhance quality in conjunction with virtual autopsies. The University of Bern is the first of a handful of pilot customers that have selected the software, which is used together with Sectra PACS workstations.
"We focus on offering our customers powerful clinical applications and foresee major potential for SyMRI Suite," says Per Elmhester, Product Manager Clinical Solutions at Sectra. The SyMRI Suite was rolled out at the beginning of 2010. The software for synthetic magnetic resonance (MR) helps hospital personnel to reduce the time required per patient for MR examinations, thus increasing the availability of the MR equipment. In addition, tissue can be quantified, identified and its volume determined. SyMRI Suite is developed by Sectra's partner Synthetic MR.
