BreastScreen NSW, part of the BreastScreen Australia national early detection breast cancer screening program, has invested in a PACS for breast imaging from Sectra. The system will be installed at the BreastScreen NSW Central Reading Facility in Sydney, New South Wales.
Sectra won a highly competitive tender to provide PACS to BreastScreen NSW. It was chosen as the successful company partly on the basis of the effectiveness of the Sectra PACS in the mammographic screening context. Sectra will integrate its PACS with the five different digital mammographic units that are being installed across New South Wales.
The government-funded breast screening program in New South Wales performs approximately 250,000 mammograms every year.
