Tokyo Women's Medical University Selects Barco as Display Supplier

June 19, 2009 - Barco has won a substantial order for the supply of medical displays for a new PACS system to be installed at Tokyo Women's Medical University Medical Center East in Japan.

Under the agreement, Barco's local distributor, Toyo Corp., will deliver a large number of diagnostic and clinical display systems, including Barco's innovative 6 MegaPixel (MP) diagnostic color display system. All displays will be integrated into the PACS solution provided by Infinitt Japan Co., Ltd.

Tokyo Women's Medical University (TWMU) Medical Center East was looking for a display visualization solution that could not only support the needs of radiology but also of other disciplines, including dental imaging, endoscopy, ultrasonography and cardiology, and optimize advanced 3D imaging applications, including MIP and MPR.

TWMU Medical Center East opted for Barco's 5MP Coronis grayscale and 3MP Nio Color display systems. Furthermore, the hospital will deploy Coronis Fusion 6MP DL multimodality displays, featuring a 30-inch diagnostic color LCD that can be used either as two seamless 3MP heads or as a single wide-screen 6MP display.

Apart from these diagnostic displays, TWMU Medical Center East also ordered 60 units of the recently-launched Barco MDRC clinical review displays. These 1.3 and 2 MegaPixel color monitors will be used as quality-controlled review monitors in the various hospital departments. Thanks to their professional-quality LCD-panel and preset DICOM-settings, the dedicated monitors will visualize images and patient data with more accurate grayscales, better contrast and a wider viewing angle than conventional computer monitors.

The hospital will also deploy Barco's MediCal QAWeb solution for Quality Assurance, which comes standard with every display. This online system includes smart features for intervention-free calibration, QA and display asset management throughout the entire hospital enterprise.
