IT developer Sectra (Linköping Sweden) and Royal Philips Electronics (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) announced during the RSNA meeting an agreement to extend their partnership in PACS for another five years. As part of the alliance, Sectra provides the core image management technology used in Philips' PACS. The two companies have been working together since 1997.

Less than a week after the announcement regarding Philips, Sectra struck another agreement with Torex Health in the U.K., a leading supplier of healthcare IT in Europe. Through this partnership, Sectra's technology for handling and archiving images will be integrated with Torex's system for clinical patient information, creating a comprehensive electronic patient record that will be delivered to hospital customers in England. Torex has also agreed to sell and install Sectra systems as a strategic core component in its own overall IT solutions in the U.K and Ireland.
