July 15, 2013 — Barco announced the launch of two new diagnostic display systems: the premium grayscale Coronis 3MP LED and the high-bright Nio Color 3MP LED. Featuring 3MP resolution and using high-bright LED backlights, these diagnostic displays enhance radiologist productivity and performance by making subtle details more noticeable more quickly.
“At a time when healthcare providers are being challenged to deliver care more efficiently, we are dedicated to helping them improve workflow efficiency,” said Lynda Domogalla, vice president product marketing for Barco’s healthcare division. “Our new diagnostic display systems with LED backlight technology are designed specifically for healthcare applications and offer many clinical, operational and financial benefits.”
Enhancing clinical performance
Barco’s high-bright LED backlights render more just-noticeable differences to help radiologists see more shades of gray. Additionally, Barco’s Nio Color 3MP LED comes with a brand-new front-of-screen sensor for on-demand image quality checks. The more advanced Coronis 3MP LED features an Intelligent Multi-Sensor Technology (I-MST) system, combining Barco’s patented I-Guard front-of-screen sensor with backlight, ambient light and temperature sensors to optimize image quality.
Other patented image-enhancing technologies, such as ULT-LED and PPU-LED, remove image noise and ensure uniform DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) images from center to corner. Revealing the smallest details, the 3MP Nio and Coronis display systems reduce windowing and leveling time, enabling radiologists to read their studies more efficiently.
Maximum return on investment
Overall, the new 3MP diagnostic displays increase throughput, save energy and have an extended lifespan. Together with Barco’s MediCal QAWeb solution for enterprise-wide, automated calibration, quality assurance and asset management, maximum uptime is guaranteed. Additionally, LED backlights produce less heat, requiring less cooling and reducing the overall operational costs for the hospital.
