Barco Introduces Nio Color 5MP Display for General Radiology and Mammography

Company’s color calibration technology ensures consistency in color for higher-quality images

February 28, 2017 — Healthcare imaging specialist Barco recently introduced the Nio Color 5MP diagnostic color display with a 5.8 megapixel resolution, making it suitable for general radiology as well as breast imaging, including breast tomosynthesis. It comes with Barco’s unique color calibration technology for consistent images, whether in color or in grayscale, to ensure the accuracy of the display and to support confident diagnostic decisions.

Many radiologists will order supplementary imaging exams to see additional detail and get a more holistic view of a patient’s condition. It is why color imaging is more and more important and why the consistency of color images matters.

The Nio Color 5MP has been designed especially for demanding radiology applications that require excellent grayscale rendition and detail, especially appreciated in mammography and breast tomosynthesis. In addition, it includes sophisticated calibrated color that also improves gray images, a feature previously only available on Barco’s Coronis Uniti display system.

With its 5.8 megapixel resolution, the new Nio offers more pixels than traditional mammography displays, according to Barco, so you can see more of the image. Its aspect ratio is a perfect fit for tall X-ray images — especially for the MLO view in mammography — resulting in less panning and zooming for a better reading experience. It also comes with Barco’s SpotView technology to get a closer look at a particular region of interest.

Just like the DICOM standard ensures consistent grayscales across displays, color images need additional monitoring, correction and calibration too in order to render them in a meaningful way. That is why Barco developed its SteadyColor technology to ensure consistency in color, from display to display, so radiologists can make a diagnosis based on reliable images.

Barco’s sensor technology, combined with MediCal QAWeb for automated calibration and quality assurance (QA), makes sure every image is displayed to perfection in a highly regulated environment. With MediCal QAWeb, compliance with Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) and QA guidelines is effortless.

Like most of Barco’s medical displays, Nio Color 5MP comes with a set of tools to help radiologists work smarter, not harder. These include features for dimming of auxiliary displays, enhancing visualization of details, and personalizing display settings, such as Clearbase or BlueBase, switchable on the same display, even per radiologist.

Enabling visualization of both general radiology and mammography images, Nio Color 5MP eliminates the need for separate workstations. This leads to reductions in display cost, real estate and the operational expenditure required to maintain an enterprise-wide display fleet.

The Nio Color 5MP will be on display at the European Congress of Radiology (ECR), March 1-5 in Vienna, Austria.

Commercial availability in the U.S. is pending U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance.
