Barco, a Belgian firm that makes various visualization devices, is proud of the sales success its diagnostic display has created. And this is not without reason, as the monitor boasts a 3280 x 2048 native resolution and the following features:
Multi-modality PACS imaging
The Diagnostic Luminance system delivers a DICOM-calibrated luminance of 800 cd/m², allowing for simultaneous reading of color, grayscale and fused modalities. Coronal views, for instance, can now be combined with smaller MIPS and volume rendered images on the same screen to facilitate diagnostic decisions.
The integrated ULT of Coronis Fusion 6MP DL distributes the brightness equally over the entire 30-inch screen surface. Supported by an intelligent backlight design, this reduces non-uniformities caused by the LCD as well as the backlight to less than 10%. As a result, all images comply perfectly to the DICOM standard, no matter where they are positioned on the screen.
Automated Quality Assurance
The latest version of MediCal QAWeb, combined with the unique I-Guard sensor, ensures fully automated image Quality Assurance with no need for human intervention. MediCal QAWeb tracks, maintains and logs viewing performance, automates QA tasks, initiates display system calibration and establishes an accurate DICOM Look-Up Table calibration.
The new Coronis Fusion 6MP DL display system is driven by a high-speed MXRT display controller, specifically designed to support 3D PACS applications with 30-bit color precision. As a result, Coronis Fusion 6MP DL is ready for the latest 3D CT, MR and PET applications in combination with standard 2D PACS reading.
From a recent press release by the company:
The system introduces the world’s first seamless 30-inch color LCD that can be used either as two seamless 3 MegaPixel heads or as one wide-screen 6 MegaPixel display. This makes it possible for radiologists to read chest X-ray, CT, MR, cath and echo cardiogram images, or any other combination, side by side on a single diagnostic screen. This wide-screen LCD screen is combined with a high-performance display controller and an online system for automated softcopy Quality Assurance, resulting in a turnkey solution for PACS imaging.
In their search for the preferred softcopy display solution, the Beatrix Hospital set up a steering group that brought together the radiology department, a Clinical Physicist and an external consultancy company.
