Sectra's imaging solution for radiology and digital pathology selected by Kettering Health Network
7 November 2018 -

Sectra (STO: SECT B), an international medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company, declared on Wednesday that it has received an order from US-based Kettering Health Network (KHN) for its radiology and digital pathology imaging solution.

The company said its solution, integrated with the Epic EMR, will be installed throughout KHN to provide a consolidated overview of patient images and information to support increased reading and reporting efficiency. Sectra added that its imaging PACS will promote high system availability at KHN's eight hospitals and 120 outpatient facilities in southwestern Ohio.

In addition, Sectra's solution will support KHN's state-of-the-art cancer fighting technologies and care, providing KHN with the ability to use digital pathology for frozen sections from the surgical suite. This will enable pathologists to remotely make an initial determination of whether all cancerous cells have been removed or not during an ongoing surgery.

Sectra added that its digital pathology solution for primary diagnostics is still pending FDA approval in the US.
