New High-Speed Display Controllers Launched for Healthcare Imaging

December 16, 2010 – A new line of display controllers deliver triple-head capabilities and better performance when handling large datasets. The MXRT line, by Barco, also has faster OpenGL DirectX functionality for high-end PACS environments.

The MXRT-7400, MXRT-5400 and MXRT-2400 are all built with the latest ATI FirePro 3-D technology for performance, reliability and flexibility. All three are also compatible with the new DisplayPort interface standard, which assures easy installation and ultra-fast and reliable data transfers.

The mid-range MXRT-5400 and the high-end MXRT-7400 can drive three displays with just one PCIe slot. This makes them ideal for PACS workstations combining two diagnostic displays (or one seamless ‘Fusion’ display) with a third monitor for patient lists or 3-D viewing applications. This “all-in-one” approach not only saves space on the PC, it also simplifies installation and significantly reduces power consumption. The MXRT-7400 is fitted with 2GB of memory and an ultra-fast GPU.

The compact MXRT-2400 offers a solution where a low-profile workstation is needed for space efficiency. The energy-friendly board can drive two 5-MegaPixel displays at full refresh rates.

The MXRT-x400 display controllers have been fully tested and optimized to work with the company’s Nio and Coronis display products as well as its MediCal QAWeb software. Vigorous compatibility testing also ensures reliable performance with all common medical applications. They support DirectX (version 11.0) and OpenGL (version 4.0) and are compatible with the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.

Size of the liver and its fat fraction — 22 percent — (top middle in collage) can be quantified automatically using an algorithm developed by Dr. Albert Hsiao and his team at the University of California San Diego. This and other information that might be mined by DL algorithms from CT and MR images could help personalize patients’ treatment. Collage provided by Albert Hsiao
