Nio Color 2MP LED
July 1, 2016 — Healthcare imaging specialist Barco announced it will be displaying its latest advanced diagnostic display systems at the 2016 Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting, June 29-July 1 in Portland, Ore.
The Coronis Uniti display system enables clinicians to read both picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and mammography images on the same display. Radiologists can view perfect color and grayscale, 2-D and 3-D, static and dynamic images on a single 12 MP screen. They can bring multiple types of breast images together, efficiently viewing all exams on one display to make a better diagnosis. This also reduces the complexity and cost of the workstation footprint and eliminates the need for changing displays and/or reading both of these images at separate locations. Proprietary intuitive workflow features help boost diagnostic accuracy and reduce occupational stress.
The Coronis Fusion 6MP display system, Barco’s multimodality workhorse, offers new features that increase radiologist productivity to help hospitals achieve higher return on investment (ROI) in their reading rooms. The recent update significantly increases luminance — delivering 50 percent more light (600 cd/m2) to reveal 10 percent more just noticeable differences (JNDs) — enabling radiologists to see clinical details more quickly to make a more certain diagnosis. The full suite of intuitive workflow tools is also included.
The Nio Color 2MP LED is designed for radiologists’ home reading stations, as more and more they are working from home. However, this requires that they be able to report from home and verify reports on PACS. According to Barco, the Nio Color 2MP LED offers excellent image consistency based on superior color accuracy, brightness and contrast.
Clinicians at SIIM 2016 are invited to visit the Radiology Workspace Hands-On Learning Laboratory in the Science and Innovation Pavilion to provide feedback on how to improve the radiology reading workspace and reduce “burnout.” This demonstration models a study conducted at the University of Maryland and Saint Vincent Hospital, which is investigating how recent advances in software, monitors and ergonomics can re-invent the radiologist workspace to improve comfort and productivity.
