Sectra, University Hospitals ink research deal
Sectra, the medical imaging IT company based in Linköping, Sweden, has signed a multi-year Master Research Agreement with University Hospitals (UH) in Cleveland. Possible areas of collaboration between UH and Sectra include management tools to improve radiologists' productivity, as well as further development of the Sectra Visualization Table, a large medical multi-touch display designed for viewing and manipulating 3D images of the human body.

"This research agreement provides the framework to collaboratively work on projects to better serve our patients through improvements in radiological imaging and remote interpretation workflow with centralized archiving," Pablo R. Ros, MD, chairman, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, said in a statement.

UH is currently using the Sectra PACS, which is integrated with UH’s EMR system.
