Sectra to show latest integrated RIS/PACS radiology solutions at the SIIM Conference

Shelton, CT – May 27, 2010 – The IT and medical technology company, Sectra will demonstrate its market leading web-based RIS/PACS at the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine’s (SIIM) annual meeting held June 3-6 in Minneapolis, MN. Visit Sectra at booth #611 to learn more about integrated RIS/PACS and breast imaging systems.

Sectra will highlight its latest web-based PACS release, IDS7. Sectra PACS is now in its 17th year of production and use by Sectra’s global client base. The latest Sectra PACS release introduces several new capabilities to improve radiologists’ ease of use and viewing techniques, speed image transfer and simplify system configuration and administration.

Highlights include the following:

  • Advanced database architecture treats image data as multi-dimensional volumes, which helps speed the retrieval, display and comparison of large data sets.
  • High performance image compression progressively transfers image data over low-bandwidth networks, and enables 3D manipulation before all data has been loaded to benefit remote reading situations.
  • Enhancements to worklist management, hanging protocols and overall navigation of patient information help radiologists reduce clicks and increase productivity.

Learn more by viewing the Sectra PACS video.

Sectra will also be highlighting Sectra RIS, a full-featured web-based solution that manages all aspects of radiology workflow, including: scheduling optimization, worklist management, embedded speech recognition, online report distribution and exam status updates, mammography reporting and tracking, proactive monitoring and analytics, and critical results reporting.
