There is a great opportunity for businesses to grow with the ongoing transformation in radiology. In view of that, 2018 is an ideal time to take time in radiology groups to explore the possibilities inherent in the current environment of radiology.
Charlotte Radiology is one of the biggest and most advanced radiology groups in the U.S. and has served Mecklenburg and the surrounding counties since 1967. The company has 14 centers of the breast, five mobile units (MRI and mammography), two venous units and several vascular clinics and intervention clinics, in addition to offering 24/7 service to 19 hospitals. In collaboration with the leading investment firm for health care, Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe, United States Radiology, through partnerships with similar, quality-oriented radiology companies, continues to grow to share ideas, leverage resources and offer top quality patient care. They offer quality-led, innovative, customer-oriented services that deliver value and exceed expectations through collaborative teamwork.
Sectra (STO: SECT B) will be installing its breast imaging solution in its 15 of Charlotte Radiology breast centers, which are based in North Carolina. Upon completion of the project, the radiologists will have an improved productivity workflow by viewing multiple modalities on a workstation with the aim of improving care for cancer. Sectra is a leading global supplier of IT imaging solutions that support healthcare to achieve patient-centric services with more than 25 years of innovation and 1,800 installations worldwide. For imaging- intense departments (radiology, pathology, cardiology, and orthopedics), VNA Sectra provides a company-specific imagery solution, and it shares and works together.
“Even in an ever-evolving industry, our practice is thriving. Specifically, our breast imaging program is viewed as a national leader in the field, optimizing new technologies while continuing to elevate patient care,” says Deborah Agisim, MD, Chief of Mammography for Charlotte Radiology.
Charlotte Radiology, a founding partner of U.S. Radiology, operates 15 breast centers, a mobile breast center, two veine centers, two radiology intervention centers. More than one million studies per year for 14 hospitals, 30 imaging centers, and numerous healthcare providers have been carried out by their 100+ subspecialized radiologists.
In November 2018, the contract for breast imaging was signed. Sectra breast imaging is a component of the Scaleable and Modular Imaging Portfolio of Sectra, which can be extended to other pathology, cardiology, and orthopedics departments.
