Barco has just received the first ever FDA approval for a computer monitor to be used for viewing breast tomosynthesis imagery. Tomosynthesis involves sequential movie-like playback of images of the breast taken from different angles, so the monitor has to properly render each frame quickly and with precision.
From the product page:
- RapidFrame ™: RapidFrame technology counteracts motion blur when scrolling through a stack of images due to a high pixel refresh rate.
- Per Pixel Uniformity™: PPU measures and adjusts the luminance of each pixel, making every pixel permanently DICOM compliant.
- SmoothGray™: SmoothGray generates ultra-precise representations of grayscale images and eliminates quantization artifacts, reducing the overall noise in the images.
- DuraLight Nova™: the DuraLight Nova backlight ensures a diagnostic luminance of 1,000 cd/m². In addition, they last twice as long without increasing power consumption.
- I-Luminate™: a push on the ‘hot light’ I-Luminate button will temporarily boost display brightness, allowing inspection of subtle details or comparison of digital exams with film-based priors.
- I-Guard™: the integrated I-Guard sensor continually guards and adjusts the luminance output of the display, ensuring continuous compliance with the DICOM standard.
- QAWeb: the innovative MediCal QAWeb system is an easy-to-use, web-based tool for automated calibration and Quality Assurance.
- Adjustable dual-head stand: the dual-head stand allows users to angle the displays to fit their preferred position for optimum viewing.
