Sectra has been assigned to deliver a centralised picture archiving and communications system (PACS) and vendor neutral archiving solution, for digital mammography throughout the country of New Zealand. This has the endorsement of New Zealandâs Ministry of Health.
The national breast screening programme in New Zealand, BreastScreen Aotearoa, is establishing a centralised electronic PACS that can store and transmit digital mammography images. A centrally shared image and archiving solution will support better future collaboration and information sharing among breast screening providers across the country. By allowing easy access to images regardless of their origins or the system used, the solution supports patient-centric healthcare.
