Linköping, Sweden – December 7, 2022 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) has signed a contract with Great Ormand Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust (GOSH) in the UK. The contract with GOSH, which is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals, will provide its healthcare professionals with access to new digital imaging tools. The solution will also enhance how they assess images from various modalities that are crucial for effective diagnoses.
GOSH will install Sectra’s enterprise imaging solution as a subscription (Sectra One) and utilize the radiology module. The news follows the signing of a contract between the trust and Sectra in September 2022.
The functionality in the trust’s new imaging system will enable staff to analyze images in new ways. It will also improve efficiency, open up new possibilities around artificial intelligence, and allow GOSH’s globally renowned specialists to share their expertise more easily beyond the trust.
KA Imaging’s Reveal 35C detector, currently available as an upgrade solution in the US and selected geographies, can now be sold in the European Union. The detector recently obtained the CE Mark. Contact us at email@example.com to book a free demo.
Anthony Harper, assistant director of ICT at Great Ormand Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust, says: “This upgrade in digital diagnostic tools will bring a range of benefits to our staff as they report on imaging that informs diagnoses and allows clinicians to monitor disease progression for patients. Day to day, this will make all the difference for our radiologists, who will be better able to manipulate large imaging datasets using modern techniques. We will widen our utilization of advanced image processing, while enhanced ways of displaying imaging information in multi-disciplinary teams will enrich collaboration within the hospital.”
He continues: “The new system will streamline access to imaging from elsewhere, improving efficiency when our teams respond to referrals from other hospitals. It will allow us to examine the possibilities of AI-supported diagnoses moving forward as we work to remain at the forefront of pediatric imaging.”
Efficiencies enabled by the new solution are expected to help imaging specialists at GOSH to manage a higher throughput of diagnostic studies. For example, radiology professionals will be able to view and report on images in a single system that also provides integrated voice recognition, reducing the need to manually move from one system to another.
Reliance on manual processes when it comes to external image retrieval will also be reduced, with standards in the system allowing the trust to more easily plug into initiatives at the integrated care system level, across London and nationally.
