Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center (KCBC), a full-service breast health care practice, has recently signed an agreement with the international medical imaging IT company, Sectra (STO: SECT B). Under the agreement, KCBC will utilize Sectra breast imaging PACS and RIS to provide improved service to its referring physician community and patient population.
With Sectra's solution, KCBC will offer its referring physicians the ability to order studies on-line to ensure prompt scheduling for their patients. The KCBC staff will gain efficiencies via a unified system from image acquisition through report distribution."Sectra was a logical choice for our practice," says the KCBC Administrator, Michelle Oglesby.
