Sectra speeds up clinical use of AI — digital pathology apps now available in marketplace
Linköping, Sweden – June 15, 2021 – International medical imaging IT and cybersecurity company Sectra (STO: SECT B) expands its AI marketplace with digital pathology. In addition to radiology, customers can now see AI applications for digital pathology that can be integrated into existing diagnostic workflows to assist pathologists with accurate diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment of cancers.
“Adopting AI into clinical practice can improve performance and quality in digital pathology workflows, creating an impact for pathologists in their daily work. With AI-powered workflows in digital pathology, pathologists can focus on the challenging tasks, and let AI take care of those that require more labor. A key to achieving this is to ensure that the AI applications can be seamlessly integrated into the existing workflow,” says Elin Kindberg, Global Product Manager Digital Pathology at Sectra.
