June 8, 2009 – Barco announced at the SIIM Annual Meeting, Charlotte, N.C., that it was selected by Vermont-based Fletcher Allen Health Care to supply a total of 24 Coronis Fusion 6MP DL display systems to be installed within the facility's radiology department.
With the assistance of integration partner McKesson, installation of the Coronis Fusion 6MP (MegaPixel) color displays began in early 2009. The existing McKesson workstation monitors were all replaced with a pair of Barco 6MP monitors.
Fletcher Allen Health Care's purchase of the Barco Coronis Fusion 6MP DL color display provides an all-in-one solution for the radiology department's diagnostic workstations, enabling increased versatility and improved workflow. According to George M. Ebert, MD, PhD, Vice Chair of Imaging Technology, Director of Radiology Informatics at Fletcher Allen Health Care and Associate Professor of Radiology, University of Vermont College of Medicine, the facility needed to find the most advanced diagnostic monitors to match their highly advanced imaging equipment.
Barco's Coronis Fusion 6MP DL is the industry's first 6MP PACS display system for diagnostic imaging. The innovative display features a 30-inch workspace with no center bezel, giving radiologists the freedom to organize their desktop as one 6MP widescreen display, or two 3MP displays, in grayscale and color. The system enables users to read CT, MR, cath and echo cardiogram images or any other combination, side-by-side on a single diagnostic screen with full diagnostic detail.
Fletcher Allen Health Care is both a community hospital and the state of Vermont's academic medical center. Through its alliance with the University of Vermont, Fletcher Allen is able to provide the best patient care possible by bringing medical education and research to the bedside and the doctor's office. Fletcher Allen is a pioneering force in oncology imaging, cardiac imaging and radiation therapy in both CT simulation and PET simulation.
