Swedish healthcare provider selects Sectras digital pathology solution for diagnostics Systems (20.06.2017)
International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra announces that Västernorrland County Council, in Sweden, orders Sectra’s solution for storing and reviewing digital pathology images. A digital pathology solution contributes to improving cancer care by providing shorter lead times. The solution will be used for primary diagnostics and will enable a deeper collaboration between both physicians and medical disciplines.

Digital management of pathology examinations enables fast image access and facilitates sharing with other physicians when required. By reviewing the images digitally, the county council’s pathologists also have access to digital measurement tools, which contribute to increased reading efficiency.

“Digitizing our pathology department enables us to handle many of the efficiency and collaboration challenges that healthcare is facing. One example is increasing efficiency before and during multi-disciplinary team meetings. Sectra’s solution meets our high requirements in terms of both capacity and performance, as well as in system availability,” says Ingela Pirttilä, Department Manager for Pathology at Västernorrland County Council.

The county council will use Sectra’s digital pathology solution for storing and reviewing its approximately 110,000 pathology images per year.

Sectra digital pathology
Sectra’s digital pathology solution includes digital tools which enable the pathologists to make their diagnoses and carry out reporting with higher precision and less time spent per case. The pathology solution is built on the same platform as Sectra’s solution for handling radiology images (Sectra PACS). This enables in-depth collaboration and easier sharing of medical images and patient information between radiologists and pathologists as well as with other medical disciplines involved in cancer care—so called integrated diagnostics. In addition, using a common platform leads to reduced maintenance and operating costs. Sectra offers a complete and vendor-neutral solution for primary diagnostics that includes storage solutions and an advanced review workstation.
