NFL Prospects Undergo Medical Screening

February 22, 2011 – More than 300 of the country’s top draft-eligible college football players will undergo an intensive medical evaluation at the NFL Scouting Combine. Barco is providing several dozen medical imaging displays for staff to conduct MRI, CT, ultrasounds, nuclear imaging studies and cardiac evaluations to assess the athletes' health.

Because medical examinations are the Combine's number one priority, top-notch imaging equipment essential. Barco is providing several Coronis Fusion 6MP DL wide-screen color display systems, Coronis 2MP color displays and MDRC 2120 clinical review displays.

“The NFL Draft is a high-stakes game so it's imperative the best tools are available to precisely evaluate a player's physical condition and abilities. Through accurate assessments, the teams can then determine how well a player fits their needs,” said Dave Hennon, director, radiology and radiation oncology IS at Indiana University Health. “Barco's displays have been a good fit for us; they provide the highest image resolution and stability, multi-modality imaging options and a wide-angle viewing experience. We use them throughout our system because of their outstanding quality and reliability.”

In addition to medical assessments, athletes will also participate in a variety of psychological and physical tests, as well as formal and informal interviews with the teams' top executives, coaches and scouts. Test results are aggregated into detailed reports that create a multi-faceted portrait of the athlete's health status and capabilities, which team owners, executives and coaches then use to rank players in their final preparation for the NFL Draft.

The NFL Scouting Combine will be held February 23 – March 1, 2011 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.
