Sectra’s solution for storing, viewing and sharing digital pathology images has received the CE mark for primary diagnostic use. The solution enables more efficient cancer care by enhancing collaboration and sharing of images between pathologists and radiologists. It will be showcased at the Digital Pathology Congress in San Diego, June 22-23.
Sectra’s solution for digital pathology is built on the same platform as Sectra’s radiology PACS, the solution for managing radiology images. The common technical platform enables closer collaboration between the two specialties, sometimes referred to as integrated diagnostics, facilitating, for example, more efficient multi-disciplinary team meetings.
European and Scandinavian pathology departments are in the process of digitizing their work, but nonetheless, only a few hospitals have implemented full-scale digital pathology solutions. In the US, digital pathology for primary diagnostics is still pending FDA approval.
