Sectra and Voxar sign clinical solutions agreement

Sectra and Voxar sign clinical solutions agreement The Swedish medical technology and IT company Sectra, has signed a clinical solutions agreement with Voxar, one of the leading 3D medical imaging companies, for the integration of Voxar's 3D imaging technology in Sectra's digital radiology systems. As a result of this agreement it will be possible to use advanced 3D display and rendering tools from Voxar's Plug n View 3D software, as a part of Sectra's workstation for digital radiology. Through co-operations of this kind, Sectra strives to increase customer benefit, delivering the latest clinical innovations with a partner network of highly specialized companies. The agreement with Voxar is one of several special partner applications that Sectra will present at the annual RSNA radiology congress in Chicago, November 25-30 2001. Voxar develops 3D imaging software that allows radiologists to generate 2D and 3D views from computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) medical scan data. The easy-to-use software makes it possible to work with large datasets and communicate findings quickly to referring physicians, improving clinical workflow and the speed and accuracy of treatment planning. "This cooperation with Sectra will increase Voxar's availability in European and global markets, allowing Voxar to offer users of Sectra's workstation access to leading 3D technology with real clinical benefits," says Andrew Bissell, Voxar's chief executive officer. The 3D software will be opened directly from Sectra's digital radiology system, so the user will access the new functionality in one click and experience a single application. This seamless integration simplifies the user's work, since it is no longer necessary to switch between different programmes or indeed different workstations, to use the two products in parallel. "Sectra works with open systems. In order to further increase our customer's benefit from our product we give other suppliers the opportunity to integrate their clinical applications on top of our workstations." says Anders Brodin, product manager at Sectra Imtec. "With this kind of cooperations we create, as the only company in the business, a large selection of high quality applications (plug-ins) on a single platform" says Torbjörn Kronander, president of Sectra Imtec. "All with the aim of maximising the benefit that the customer gets from our platform for digital radiology."
