IHE Connectathon 2015

Sectra tests display of breast tomo images

At the recent North American IHE Connectathon in Cleveland, Sectra (STO: SECT B) successfully completed testing of the IHE profiles MAMMO and DBT (Digital Breast Tomosynthesis). The testing was done using Sectra PACS which implements the Image Display and Image Manager actors of these profiles.

“Being a pioneer in implementing vendor neutral support for reading Digital Breast Tomosynthesis, it is a natural step for us as to adhere to new standards and technical frameworks. These test results confirm that our breast imaging solution is future proof and will be compliant also with modalities that implement support for this new profile,” says Anders Granlund, Product Manager for Sectra’s breast imaging solutions.

About Sectra Breast Imaging PACS
Sectra Breast Imaging PACS is a web-based workstation featuring advanced diagnostic tools, including integrated CAD and reporting, which offers a single-system reading environment for mammographers. True multi-modality capabilities allow images from any modality, such as ultrasound, MRI or breast tomosynthesis, to be displayed side-by-side with the mammograms.

According to the “2014 Best in KLAS: Software and Services” report by the research firm with the same name, Sectra PACS was awarded “Best in KLAS” both in the US and globally for highest customer satisfaction. The research directly represents the provider voice and acts as a catalyst for improving vendor performance.
