We are especially excited about having our pathology slide images available in the Sectra PACS, so that surgeons and other physicians can easily correlate histology with radiographic imaging, and can see features that we could only describe in interpretive reports before digital pathology.
We need greater efficiency so we can look at slides and make a diagnosis from anywhere. This will allow us to spread our subspecialty pathology knowledge and also will allow us to bring better information to key meetings like MDTs and eventually take advantage of artificial intelligence and analytics.
Sectra’s high-end review application provides the right environment and tools for pathologists to perform their daily work in a digital system and reduces the pain points associated with time-consuming and labor-intensive manual workflow. Time can be used more efficiently by performing advanced diagnostic work while the computer performs time-consuming tasks, such as organizing samples and glass logistics. The application’s extremely fast image display supports quick and accurate diagnoses of histopathology cases.
With a vendor-neutral approach, the Sectra solution provides a full case overview, including pathology images, images from macro cameras, as well as patient information from the EMR and LIMS in the same application. Having the possibility to perform all daily tasks from a single workstation with instant access to images enables efficient pathology workflows. This is especially beneficial in primary diagnostics, where large volumes are handled.
In addition to the PACS segments, Sectra also won the very first Best in KLAS award for the new category Digital Pathology (non-US) in February, 2021. Since the launch of the Sectra Digital Pathology Solution in 2015, it has grown to support full-scale primary diagnostics at large healthcare providers worldwide. During 2020, it also received FDA approval in the US.
1 Sectra’s digital pathology solution may be used for primary diagnostics in the US when used together with Leica Biosystems’ scanner AT2 DX and the Dell MR2416 monitor.
Utilizing digital pathology for primary diagnosis needs to be a shared passion of pathology and IT.
