Barco clinches PACS display system contract for Brazil's largest hospital

Barco : 27 May, 2008  (Application Story)
Barco has won a contract to supply high-grade PACS display systems to the largest hospital in Brazil - the Hospital das Clinicas da Faculdade de Medicina da Universidade de Sao Paul.
The new systems will be installed in the hospital’s reporting rooms and will be deployed to replace the existing film-based radiology workflow. Delivery and installation will be carried out by Macsym Tecnologia Eletronica, Barco’s local partner in Brazil.

“We are very pleased to contribute to this strategic PACS project in the biggest and most important hospital in Brazil,” said Carlos Alberto Kavai, director at Macsym. “By choosing the Barco Nio display systems, the University Hospital of Sao Paulo has opted for a dependable visualisation solution with a proven track record at a very competitive price. Performing approximately 500,000 diagnostic procedures every year, the hospital will certainly benefit from the high level of productivity delivered by the Nio display systems.”

“In our country, it is important for healthcare providers to use displays that are medically approved to do reporting,” explained Erico Bueno, PACS coordinator at the University Hospital of Sao Paulo. “Even in times where budget constraints are a reality, our hospital decided to opt for a solution that delivers the quality our staff and patients deserve. After analysis and testing, we concluded that Barco’s Nio systems best met our expectations. The Nio systems allow us to keep the quality, accuracy and reliability of our reporting to the highest level.”

The order for Barco’s Nio displays is part of a larger PACS project, including replacement of the hospital’s old modalities with DICOM compliant devices, installation of a DICOM server and storage, and setup of new workstations for image visualisation and diagnosis. Altogether, the hospital ordered 23 Nio Fusion 4MP colour systems with a resolution of 4MegaPixel and 7 Nio grayscale systems (dual-head) with a resolution of 3 MegaPixel. All workstations will be installed in the hospital’s radiology institute.

Nio is Barco’s range of diagnostic display systems for cost-effective medical imaging. Combining both innovation and performance, Nio display systems offer radiologists the most dependable and comprehensive diagnostic display solution on the market. The proven technology of Nio significantly improves the diagnostic reading routine for a multitude of medical imaging applications, including PACS, MRI, angiography, Computed tomography and mammography. Nio systems are available in colour and grayscale, with resolutions ranging from 2 MegaPixel up to 5 MegaPixel. Just like all other Barco diagnostic display systems, Nio systems come with a five year warranty.
