Sectra, the Sweden-based radiology and image IT systems and services company, announced the launch of a new solution for storing, viewing, and sharing digital pathology images today at HIMSS15.  This new solution will allow pathologists to review cases on the computer--and easily send cases to other pathologists or radiologists for consultations for quicker, more accurate diagnoses. 

“Many pathology departments stand on the threshold of adopting digital pathology to benefit from major health and financial gains and quality improvements throughout the cancer care chain. With 20 years’ experience in the medical IT field and having been a pioneer in the digitization of radiology, Sectra can help pathology departments fully utilize the benefits of digitization,” says Marie Ekström, President of Sectra Imaging IT Solutions and Executive Vice President of Sectra AB.

In the United States, digital pathology for primary diagnostics is still pending FDA approval.  But many pathology departments in Europe are already in the process of digitizing their files as traditional workflows in radiology and pathology departments can limit the exchange of information.  Sectra's new solution for digital pathology allows for close collaboration between the two disciplines, thus improving the speed and accuracy of cancer diagnoses.
