The technology will support patient care at both UC San Diego Health campuses in Hillcrest and La Jolla, and at Moores Cancer Center, the region's only NCI-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center.  

UC San Diego Health performs screening mammography and offers a full spectrum of diagnostic breast imaging services, including 2D and 3D mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI, breast biopsies and a wide-range of image-guided interventional procedures. The Sectra PACS will be integrated with the existing mammography reporting system and VNA.

Sectra PACS displays ultrasound and MRI images side-by-side with digital mammograms and digital breast tomosynthesis exams, facilitating comparison of current and prior images according to radiologists' preferences.

"Sectra's focus on cancer care, including our cutting-edge software for teaching files and multidisciplinary team meetings, aligns closely with UC San Diego Health's treatment philosophy and academic needs," says Mikael Anden, President of Sectra North America.
