IPO Porto Francisco Gentil selects Sectra PACS to support eight departments

Sectra : 10 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Portugal’s Instituto Portugues de Oncologia do Porto Francisco Gentil has signed an agreement with Sectra for the Swedish IT and medical technology company to provide PACS products and services.
IPO Porto Francisco Gentil is a specialised oncology institute, serving the population of northern Portugal.

The diagnostic imaging operations at the institute are distributed across eight departments including the radiology, interventional radiology, nuclear medicine, cardiology, gastroenterology, pneumology and gynaecology departments. The institute performs approximately 85,000 radiology examinations annually.

Sectra PACS will serve in a totally integrated radiology solution incorporated in all areas of diagnostic imaging within the institute. Digitising imaging operations will increase workflow efficiencies and provide radiologists with instant access to images and information regardless of location.

“Sectra has a very competent staff and has been truly attentive to our needs,” said Dr Margarida Gouvea, chief radiologist at IPO Porto Francisco Gentil. “They offer a tightly integrated imaging solution including specialised clinical applications for computer-aided cancer detection and virtual colonoscopy, a solution that we have found well suited to our specific situation.”

Since 1995 Sectra PACS has been in operation at Portuguese hospitals. Today, Sectra software has a market share of about 50 percent on the Portuguese market. Since September 2006 Sectra operates under its own brand in Portugal. In addition to direct sales efforts, Sectra continues to offer direct PACS service and support agreements to any customers that previously purchased Sectra products through partners.

“The agreement with IPO Porto Francisco Gentil confirms our ability to provide first-class products and service and support,” said Carlos Cardoso, president of Sectra Iberia. “We continuously strive to support our customers in the work with developing and enhancing the efficiency of operations with the help of our solutions, directly with us or through our partners.”
