Barco (Kortrijk, Belgium) has released a new version of its Coronis 5MP monitor for mammography applications. The unit features a 12-bit DICOM look-up table allowing for 4096 levels of gray.
The display’s diagnostic precision is further enhanced by the next generation Per Pixel Uniformity (PPU) technology. PPU measures and adjusts the luminance output of each of the five million individual pixels on screen, thus eliminating distracting screen noise and improving the display’s image uniformity from center to corner.
Furthermore, the upgraded system now incorporates a special version of the MediCal QAWeb service, which includes a dedicated mammography quality check. Together with the integrated I-Guard front screen sensor, MediCal QAWeb continuously monitors the display’s quality for mammography screening. The intelligent I-Guard sensor also performs automated and intervention-free DICOM calibration and softcopy QA, helping to meet stringent mammography quality standards.
The product’s extremely high luminance, high contrast ratio, and dark black levels guarantee exceptional image accuracy. Moreover, facilities will continue to benefit from Barco’s DuraLight long-life backlight technology which assures that the Coronis 5MP Mammo will last three times as long as other displays, reducing the total cost of ownership substantially.
To allow for optimum workflow efficiency, the upgraded Coronis 5MP Mammo is bundled with a high-speed Barco display controller. This powerful board lets radiologists load current and prior studies instantly, enabling them to progress smoothly through their diagnostic workflow without having to wait for images.
