Barco Offers New Family Displays For Hospital-Wide Imaging

December 4, 2008 - Medical imaging company Barco is expanding its portfolio of medical displays this week at RSNA with a brand-new family of clinical review displays - the MDRC will provide a quality, budget-friendly visualization solution for a wide spectrum of applications throughout hospitals.

The new product line is Barco’s answer to the growing demand for visualizing DICOM-compliant images and patient information beyond the radiology department.

The MDRC series comes in two variants: a 20-inch color screen with 2 MegaPixel resolution (MDRC-2120) and a 19-inch color version with 1 MegaPixel resolution (MDRC-1119). The latter can optionally be fitted with a touch screen interface. Both models are equipped with professional-quality LDCs that present medical images with higher contrast and a wider viewing angle than conventional LCD screens. An integrated DICOM part 14 Look-Up Table (10-bit) assures accurate grayscales and DICOM-out-of-the-box imaging, Barco said.

Barco fitted the displays with its Backlight Output Stabilization (BLOS) technology, which permanently stabilizes the luminance of the LCD backlight, leading to long-term image consistency. The display line is bundled with the MediCal QAWeb software for DICOM calibration and quality assurance.

The new clinical review displays have been specifically designed to keep capital investment and operating costs low. They also come with a power saving mode, which automatically switches off the display when not being used.

Both the 19-inch MDRC-1119 and the 20-inch MDRC-2120 are immediately available for commercial distribution.
