Sectra highlights amplified radiology efficiency at RSNA 2019
Linköping, Sweden and Shelton, CT – October 30, 2019 – In booth #6113 at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, the international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) will showcase its complete enterprise imaging offering—including the latest advancements within AI and workflow orchestration—that empowers radiologists to accomplish more in less time.
“New technology and ways of thinking are reshaping the imaging landscape, enabling healthcare providers equipped with the right technology and skills to compete not only on price, but on the value and level of service they provide,” says Fredrik Gustavsson, Sectra Chief Technology Officer. “At RSNA 2019, we will discuss and demonstrate how our solutions and most recent innovations can help tackle the growing pressure in radiology by improving radiologists’ work–life balance and helping them become more efficient. We look forward to welcoming customers and partners, old and new, to our booth.”
In early October, Sectra published The radiologist’s handbook for future excellence 2020: 4 technologies to amplify success, providing guidance on key technologies within four areas that will enhance radiologists’ skills, scope and ability to cope with future demands and to spend their time more wisely. These technology areas—workflow orchestration, artificial intelligence (AI), multiparametric MRI (mpMRI) and cross-discipline collaboration with pathology—will be in the spotlight at Sectra’s booth at RSNA 2019, where visitors can see and experience some of the new technology mentioned in this handbook in action.
At the booth, visitors will also learn more about Sectra’s scalable and comprehensive enterprise imaging solution, which includes its VNA and ‘Best-in-KLAS’-awarded PACS for radiology, pathology and cardiology at its core. The solution integrates seamlessly with the most common EMRs and is equipped with efficient and accurate clinical tools proven to boost productivity and improve collaboration.
