International medical imaging IT company Sectra(STO: SECT B) announces that Breast Center of Acadiana, in the US, has entered into a multi-year agreement to deploy Breast Imaging PACS in its two freestanding imaging centers. This investment will provide the Breast Center a future-proof platform capable of expanding with the practice.
Breast Center of Acadiana provides screening mammography along with screening 3D ultrasound to women in southern Louisiana at locations in Lafayette and Youngsville. The Lafayette location also serves as the referral center for patients requiring more specialized and personalized breast imaging procedures and biopsies for diagnosis of breast cancer and other breast problems.
Gary Mathews M.D., a radiologist who specializes in breast imaging, is the founder and medical director of Breast Center of Acadiana. “I am eager to implement the Sectra PACS in our practice. Its versatility and adaptability for customization as well as its worldwide acceptance and proven track record were key factors in my decision. Sectra’s technology will provide a new computer platform to most effectively operate our state of the art imaging including digital mammography, breast ultrasound, automated whole breast (3D) ultrasound, and breast MRI. With the Sectra system in place, our breast center is better equipped to serve our patients and doctors into the future,” says Dr. Mathews.
Sectra PACS displays images from any modality, side-by-side with digital mammograms, facilitating comparison of current and prior images according to radiologist preference. “Sectra’s high quality display and reading flexibility has earned acclaim as the most user-friendly PACS for breast imaging radiologists,” says Mikael Anden, president of Sectra North America.
Sectra Breast Imaging PACS will be showcased in booth #6113 at RSNA in Chicago.
