Nov 7, 2023 | Medical Systems | USA​

Linköping, Sweden – November 7, 2023 – At this year’s Radiological Society of North America’s annual meeting (RSNA), international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) will showcase its latest developments to make workflows even more efficient, regardless of reading location. Increased productivity and workplace flexibility help radiologists keep work and life in balance.

Marie Ekström Trägårdh, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions, says, “Radiologists today face increasing workloads and the risk of burnout. While we may be unable to decrease the number of imaging studies or increase the number of radiologists, our technology can enhance workflow efficiency and improve work-life balance."
She continues, “We recognize a need for enhanced productivity, regardless of reading location. We aim to address this and other important topics through discussions and live demos at this year’s RSNA, with the goal of relieving some of radiologists’ burdens.”

In booth #8113, Sectra will showcase the complete enterprise imaging portfolio comprised of imaging modules (radiology, cardiology, pathology, orthopaedics, and ophthalmology), with its VNA and Best in KLAS PACS at its core—all delivered as a cloud service.
