Barco Releases 10 MP Display System for Diagnostic Grayscale Imaging

November 24, 2010 – The Coronis Fusion 10 MegaPixel medical display, by Barco, has obtained 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The new display also has SmoothGray technology for ultra-precise grayscale images.

“With its 4096 x 2560 resolution, the new 10 MegaPixel Coronis display system is the perfect imaging companion for a wide variety of high-resolution grayscale studies including chest, bone and breast images,” said Geert Carrein, market director for Barco's medical imaging division. “The system continues the legacy of proven Coronis benefits such as intervention-free DICOM compliance, luminance uniformity and ambient light compensation, while introducing a new proprietary innovation called 'SmoothGray'. SmoothGray presents grayscale images with an ultra-precise palette of Just Noticeable Differences that are perfectly adapted to the sensitivity of the human eye. This makes it easier to detect subtle image details, such as pulmonary nodules or pneumothoraces.”

The display incorporates advanced IPS WideView LCD technology, which renders grayscale images with superb brightness and contrast, truly dark blacks and perfect geometry. Moreover, it provides an excellent view from any angle, turning the monitor into an ideal solution for multi-user viewing of clinical images.

To maximize efficiency and reduce eye fatigue, it adopts the seamless 'Fusion' architecture that was first introduced with the company’s earlier color display system. This design offers radiologists the freedom to organize their 30-inch workspace just the way they want to: either as two seamless 5-MegaPixel displays, or one wide-screen 10 MegaPixel display. They can then compare mammography images without a central bezel. They can also review X-ray chest images or 40 full-resolution CT/MR images with superb diagnostic precision on a single screen.

To assure consistency and maximize display lifetime, it incorporates a system of multiple backlight and temperature monitoring sensors. These sensors work seamlessly with the Ambient Light Compensation sensor and the patented I-Guard front sensor to optimize the display for the most stable and efficient performance.

The display comes as a 'plug & play' product bundle, featuring an ultra-fast display controller and the latest version of the MediCal QAWeb solution. Thanks to the built-in DVI and DisplayPort connectors, users benefit from extremely fast and reliable data transfers.
