Sectra has obtained an order from three university hospitals in southwestern France for its digital pathology solution.

Part of the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region in France, the University Hospitals of Bordeaux, Poitiers and Limoges jointly conduct about 100,000 pathology cases annually.

They will complement the microscopes’ use with a joint digital solution enabling the pathologists to review and partner around cases in a new way.

Poitiers University Hospital pathologist Dr O. Renaud said: “Remote access to pathology cases will enable us to share and leverage resources between our hospitals and to facilitate the management of complex cases requiring special expertise, but also to foster teaching and research activities.

“It will also allow us to offer our pathologists, if they wish, a more flexible life thanks to remote work.”

Instead of depending on physical glass slides reviewed in microscopes, the pathologists will get instant and, if required, remote access to digital pictures of tissue samples with digital workflow.

Historical images and information between departments and hospitals could also be easily shared with digital workflow.

With the artificial intelligence (AI) platform of the Sectra’s pathology solution, healthcare providers will be able to easily add applications from different AI vendors to the workflow and clinical use.

The pathology solution, which is part of the company’s enterprise imaging solution, provides assistance to pathologists at critical decision points.

The imaging solution offers a unified strategy for all imaging needs and reduces operational costs.

Sectra’s pathology solution also allows image analysis to decrease difference and enhance the accuracy of tasks like cell counting.

During this month, University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) in the US selected Sectra’s enterprise imaging in the cloud.
