Sectra: US tele-mammography group selects Sectra as its mammography enterprise imaging vendor

Linköping, Sweden and Shelton, CT - November 10, 2016 - International
medical imaging IT company Sectra (http://www.sectra.com/) (STO: SECT
B) announces that Women's Imaging Associates has entered into a
multi-year agreement to deploy Sectra Breast Imaging PACS for
radiologist interpretation. The solution features intelligent
pre-fetching and auto-routing of images from the provider sites to
the radiologist reading locations, and it allows radiologists to read
all types of breast imaging studies from one system.

Women's Imaging Associates, located in Birmingham, Alabama, offers a
full range of imaging interpretations for over twenty hospitals,
radiology groups, outpatient facilities and OB/GYN practices. Reading
expertise includes 2D and 3D screening mammography, diagnostic
mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, as well as OB and pelvic
ultrasound.

"A major factor influencing our choice of Sectra PACS is its enhanced
efficiency for viewing the entire spectrum of breast imaging
studies," according to Caroline Reich M.D., a radiologist and CEO of
Women's Imaging Associates. "Also important to our practice is the
ability to provide MRI CAD for our centers offering breast MRI
services."

Sectra PACS displays ultrasound and MRI images side-by-side with
digital mammograms, facilitating comparison of current and prior
images according to radiologist preference. "Sectra's ability to
provide intelligent auto-routing of images to the proper radiologist
reading location is a key differentiator of our enterprise solution,"
says Mikael Anden, president of Sectra North America.

Sectra Enterprise Imaging will be showcased in booth #6113 at RSNA.
