Barco Expands Coronis Fusion Diagnostic Display Line

New generation of flat panels helps radiologists read more studies more comfortably

March 21, 2016 — Barco launched a new generation of its Coronis Fusion diagnostic display line, further boosting diagnostic accuracy as well as radiologist productivity. The new line was introduced at the 2016 European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 2-6 in Vienna, Austria.

According to a recent study by The MarkeTech Group, about 85 percent of radiologists use three displays or more. That’s why 87 percent of radiologists experience physical discomfort (such as back pain, neck strain and eye fatigue) when reading images. With its 30-inch screen, Barco’s Coronis Fusion offers the highest screen real estate compared to competitive products, according to the company, providing the perfect canvas for multimodality diagnostic imaging and enabling flexible positioning of images on a single screen. Together with its super wide viewing angle, Coronis Fusion not only reduces head and eye movements, but also minimizes image manipulations for a more ergonomic reading experience. 

Built on the latest IPS panel technology, Coronis Fusion ensures a screen area that is 100 percent compliant with the American College of Radiology (ACR) guideline for luminance ratio. It offers 50 percent more calibrated light (and 10 percent more just-noticeable differences) for faster diagnosis of subtle details, improving radiologists’ workflow. 

Additionally, Coronis Fusion offers smart image-enhancing technologies to further improve detection probability. These include SpotView technology to focus the light on lesions or abnormalities that require extra attention. It even allows users to double the size of the image in the focal spot so no detail goes unnoticed.

 Coronis Fusion display systems come with additional built-in features that help streamline workflow. By automating routine tasks they make reading sessions more efficient. Tools comprise VirtualView (to create a virtual nav-head) and DimView (to remove light pollution coming from surrounding displays), so radiologists can keep their focus on the details that really matter. 

Like all of Barco's radiology displays, Coronis Fusion is bundled with MediCal QAWeb — a cloud-based service for automated, remote calibration and quality assurance — which ensures the display is up and running to perfection at all times, with no interruptions to the radiologist’s workflow. 

Each display system comes with an ultra-fast display controller — validated with the latest workstations and with all major picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) applications — and includes seamlessly integrated technologies to boost functionality and performance. This simplifies management of the entire display network and leads to significant reductions in operational expenditure. The Coronis Fusion display system comes with a warranty of 40,000 hours on the entire system. 

Researchers from the Montefiore Medical Center found that Barco’s Coronis Fusion 6MP increases productivity by up to 19 percent and reduces eye strain compared to a dual-head 3MP workstation. Plus, the product won the Frost and Sullivan product line strategy award in 2013.
