LINKÖPING, Sweden and SHELTON,
April 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ --
International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company
Sectra (STO: SECT B) has gone live with an initial phase of
its digital pathology solution at New
York's Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), the world's
leading academic medical center focused on musculoskeletal health.
This module-incorporated within the existing Sectra enterprise
imaging solution and integrated with laboratory information system
Epic Beaker-provides integrated diagnostics capabilities between
radiology and pathology, giving physicians a full patient overview
of images across the two disciplines.
"The pathology team at HSS was thrilled to partner with Sectra
on this initiative to integrate pathology and radiology
diagnostics," said Thomas Bauer, MD,
PhD, Pathologist-in-Chief at HSS. "We believe this advancement will
enhance the care we provide our surgical patients, which is what we
strive for every day."
Pathologists select slides of interest and scan them into the
patient file. A microscope icon informs users that digital
pathology images exist side-by-side with the radiology images.
Physician users will then be able to navigate and zoom the whole
slide images. HSS installed Sectra PACS for radiology in 2010 and
added its specialty orthopedic modules in 2018.
"We are excited to see the benefits HSS will experience by
incorporating digital pathology into their workflow. The ability
for radiologists, pathologists, and surgeons to easily access both
the radiology and pathology images should be a game-changer for
patient care, especially in complex cancer cases," says
Mikael Anden, President of Sectra,
Sectra's digital pathology solution received FDA clearance last
week, read more here >>
