Sodertalje Hospital goes live with Sectra’s next-generation PACS solution

Sectra : 10 March, 2008  (Application Story)
Sodertalje Hospital has become the first Swedish hospital to go live with Sectra’s new IDS7/dx diagnostic workstation for radiologists which is part of Sectra’s next-generation PACS and is optimised for distributed reading of radiology images and handling large datasets.
Recent trends in radiology include rapidly increasing data volumes produced by new radiology equipment. New modalities such as multi-slice CT scanners will soon provide up to terabyte datasets for single radiology examinations. Sectra PACS is optimised to handle these large datasets and to enable distributed reading, that is, when examinations are performed at one hospital and reviewed at another location. This makes it possible, for example, for a radiologist to review images from a home office, a routine that is becoming increasingly common.

“At Sectra, we are dedicated to understanding the challenges our customers face and preparing them for the developments to come,” said Claes Lundstrom, product and research manager of Sectra’s medical operations. “In fact, we’re a little obsessed with meeting our customer’s future needs and, with Sectra PACS IDS7, we can do just that.”

“With Sectra’s new workstation, our radiologists can review images at a location that best suits his or her individual situation, even from home. This enables us to use our resources in the most efficient manner,” said Peter Svozil, head of the radiology department at Sodertälje Hospital. “Our cooperation with Sectra provides us the absolute leading edge of viable PACS technology based on real clinical needs that will make our everyday work easier.”
