Sectra has announced they plan to showcase their breast tomosynthesis solution at the forthcoming RSNA congress in Chicago, IL. Tomosynthesis is an emerging technology within breast imaging. Since most PACS do not support images of this type, a dedicated modality workstation is usually needed in order to read tomosynthesis images. Sectra state that with their solution, mammography clinics will be able to include reading of tomosynthesis images in their regular reading workflow, which it says will significantly contribute to increased efficiency.
“Sectra is one of the first imaging vendors to offer a Breast Imaging PACS with support for reading tomosynthesis images. This underlines our commitment to transforming customer needs into efficient medical-imaging IT solutions,” says Anders Granlund, product manager at Sectra.
