New 6 MegaPixel medical display system supports PACS projects worldwide

Barco : 10 March, 2008  (New Product)
Barco’s new 6 MegaPixel display system, Coronis Fusion 6MP DL has received its first orders for PACS projects in Australia, Korea and the Netherlands.
The display system has also now received 510(k) clearance from the US Food and Drug Administration, making it available for commercial distribution in the USA.

'The introduction of the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL at RSNA 2007 attracted immense interest from the international radiology community. Both OEM companies and end-users were excited about the obvious benefits of this versatile, multi-modality display system,” comments Geert Carrein, director of product management at Barco. “We are very pleased that this initial enthusiasm has resulted in a quick adoption in the medical imaging market”.

With the FDA 510(k) clearance in hand, Coronis Fusion 6MP DL is now also commercially available in the USA. “To respond to the growing demand for our Coronis Fusion 6MP DL system, we have geared up production and are prepared to ship the product to our customers all over the globe,” said Lynda Domogalla, director of product marketing at Barco.

Coronis Fusion 6MP DL is a versatile display system designed to further enhance flexibility and productivity in diagnostic imaging. The system introduces the industry’s first 30inch colour LCD that can be used as two seamless 3 MegaPixel heads or one wide-screen 6 MegaPixel display. This allows radiologists to read chest X-ray, CT, MR, cath and echo cardiogram images, or any other combination, side by side on a single diagnostic screen.

The new product is the first diagnostic system based on the latest, breakthrough In-Plane Switching Pro (IPS-Pro) LCD technology. Compared to conventional LCD technologies, this IPS-Pro technology sets new standards for brightness and contrast, even from a wide viewing angle. T

To achieve the best diagnostic precision, Coronis Fusion 6MP DL also integrates a number of proven Barco technologies. One of these is the diagnostic luminance system, which delivers a DICOM-calibrated luminance of 800cd/m2, allowing for simultaneous reading of colour, grayscale and fused modalities. Coronal views, for instance, can now be combined with smaller MIPS and volume rendered images on the same screen to facilitate diagnostic decisions.

Coronis Fusion 6MP DL comes with the latest version of Barco’s web-based solution for Quality Assurance. Combined with Barco’s patented I-Guard sensor, MediCal QAWeb ensures fully automated image Quality Assurance with no need for human intervention. MediCal QAWeb tracks, maintains and logs viewing performance, automates QA tasks, initiates display system calibration and establishes an accurate DICOM Look-Up Table calibration.

Coronis Fusion 6MP DL system comes standard with a five-year warranty.
