In 2003, Sectra was the first vendor to provide a multi-modality workstation tailor-made for high-performance screening. At RSNA 2009, the company introduces an entirely new mammography workstation built on Sectra RapidConnect technology. The new release combines ultra-fast mammography workflow with freedom to read from remote locations while maintaining full productivity.

Sectra RapidConnect, a core component in Sectra PACS, is a patent-pending technology that allows physicians to cooperate and efficiently share the workload at full productivity from other hospitals or from home on a global basis, also for large volumes and poor networks.

“We have used Sectra PACS for several years and a year ago we upgraded to the latest generation. It enables effective centralized reading and facilitates workload sharing among our imaging centers. This allows us to optimize utilization of radiology resources and competencies,” says Dr Fiocconi at SCM Centre Melunais d'Imagerie Médicale.

“We are very pleased that all the benefits that our customers derive from our next-generation PACS and RapidConnect can now also be offered for mammography,” says Maria Liljeqvist, Product Manager at Sectra.
