Barco Hosts Booth Talks on Medical Display Management at RSNA

November 20, 2017 — At this year’s Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) Annual Meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago, Barco will host a series of informal, 10-minute presentations focused on exploring the challenges that hospitals face in managing and ensuring compliance of their medical flat panel display network.

Session topics include “Assuring Compliance of Your Healthcare Enterprise;” “Important Considerations for Multimodality Breast Imaging;” and “Optimizing Lifecycle Management of Your Diagnostic Displays.”

1.    Assuring Compliance of your Healthcare Enterprise

With the proliferation of reading environments and changing regulatory requirements, it can be difficult to ensure compliance across all locations. Barco will show attendees how to improve quality assurance/quality control via an automated, online management of all display assets.

2.    Important Considerations for Multimodality Breast Imaging

Learn how to transform breast imaging workflow to improve efficiency and working comfort while reading the multitude of imaging modalities, from 2-D and 3-D mammography to magnetic resonance (MR) and ultrasound (US). See how bringing all exams onto a single screen improves comparison in accordance with new ACR-AAPM-SIIM Practice Parameter Determinants of Image Quality in Digital Mammography.

“Increasingly, breast density reporting requirements in most of the United States drive the need for additional imaging exams,” commented Albert Xthona, strategic product manager for Barco Healthcare. “With more than 40 percent of women over 40 having this condition, multimodality breast imaging is on the rise, and the challenge is to maintain an efficient workflow while reading hundreds more exams.”

3.    Optimizing Lifecycle Management of Your Diagnostic Displays

Maximize return on investment (ROI) and ensure perpetual compliance by understanding the critical lifecycle factors affecting display investment. See how an online, QA service can automatically track and manage display compliance, conduct data analytics, support decisions and improve lifecycle planning of assets.

“Decreasing reimbursements and increasing imaging volume are challenging radiology departments to balance economic factors with the need to improve patient outcomes and assure compliance,” commented Ketan Thanki, director of national accounts for Barco Healthcare. “A lot rests on getting the most out of their PACS [picture archiving and communication system] reading workstation investments. Once administrators understand what factors determine display lifecycles, they can better manage drivers of workstation replacement to extend asset life, avoid costs and make sound decisions for technology transitions.”
