February 5, 2021 — The coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a significant portion of America’s workforce working from home. And while so many of our healthcare workforce are needed on the front lines, there are those who can do their jobs from remote locations. Appearing at the top of the list are radiologists.

Even before the pandemic began to spread, the idea of offering radiologists the flexibility to work from home was trending. When COVID-19 enforced social distancing and new work behavior, it kicked this trend into high gear. Working from home helps limit exposure to the virus while still allowing radiologists to read as if they were on-site. The first challenge is creating home reading solutions that are the same level of quality, security and performance radiologists get from a medical workstation in the hospital reading room. The second challenge is getting them set up in a timely manner.

Barco and VisionTek partnered to develop a solution specifically designed for remote radiology reading that tackles both challenges. Together, they are undertaking the issues of technology compatibility and performance, security and patient privacy, as well as quality and compliance. Their home read solution has attracted immediate attention and early adoption in the hospital community.

The VisionTek Thunderbolt 3 Mini eGFX Enclosure comes in a sleek and portable design that discretely sits on a desk, or hidden away, to handle graphic intensive medical scan applications. Combined with a pre-installed Barco MXRT-display controller, VisionTek’s Thunderbolt 3 Mini eGFX Enclosure can accelerate the most demanding medical scan software programs.

This configuration is seamlessly deployable and mirrors the hospital reading environment providing the same diagnostic confidence and medical compliance maintained within hospital walls,” reported Mike Sklar, VP Healthcare Sales for the Americas at Barco. “It’s paired with Barco’s QAWeb Calibration and Monitoring Software, which is the industry's first and only web-based service for high-grade Quality Assurance.”

"VisionTek’s Mini eGFX enclosure powered by Barco MXRT series graphics boards and diagnostic displays allow Radiologists to remotely read scans in the safety of their home office." stated Michael Innes, President, VisionTek Products, LLC. “VisionTek is very proud to play a small part in technology innovation that impacts some of the most critical healthcare applications within the radiology community.”
