MDH Radiology Selects Sectra For Nationwide Telemammography Solution

SHELTON, Connecticut, February 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

MDH Radiology, through its unique and comprehensive delivery model, will utilize Sectra Breast Imaging PACS to provide remote reading of mammograms to its customers according to a recently signed agreement with the international medical imaging IT company,  Sectra    (STO: SECT B) .

The agreement also includes integrated breast density software provided by Volpara™, digital reporting software and Breast Cancer Risk profiles by PenRad™ and Merge Healthcare's CADstream™ for breast MRI readings. Via a multi-tiered service offering, MDH Radiology will assist healthcare providers to bridge the gap in their existing breast imaging and biopsy services.  

"It is time for all women to have access to consistent, high-quality breast care regardless of their geographic region," says MDH Radiology Founder and President, Dr. Hurvitz. "There is a disparity in access to critical screening and diagnostic services in many areas of the country that is unacceptable. My mission is to connect women everywhere with the outstanding quality of care they deserve when it comes to their breast health."

Sectra Breast Imaging PACS is a web-based, multi-modality system featuring advanced diagnostic tools, including integrated CAD, breast density assessment, and reporting, that offers a single-system reading environment for mammographers.  All digital breast images, even breast tomosynthesis, regardless of modality vendor, are automatically displayed in the same size with correct orientation and alignment, facilitating comparison of current and prior images.
