Barco launches improved healthcare diagnostic display, Health News, ET HealthWorld

Visualisation technology provider Barco on Thursday released a new 12MP healthcare diagnostic display system for picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) and breast imaging. The Nio Fusion 12MP display meets the changing expectations and standards in diagnostic workstations, according to a release.

Rachel Coxon, vice president healthcare at Barco APAC said, “Expectations of how diagnostic displays will enhance workflows are increasing among radiologists. Workstations are now expected to be able to handle all modalities, including those used for images of highly dense breast tissue. Work environments are also becoming more flexible, in response to the growing home reading trend globally, including Asia. The Nio Fusion 12MP delivers diagnostic flexibility for both PACS and breast imaging, addressing today’s radiology and mammography landscape.”

Barco’s Nio Fusion has a 12MP screen resolution, which makes it suitable for multiple PACS images and breast imaging modalities including breast tomosynthesis. The Fusion design eliminates the need for multiple portrait displays. A Keyboard-Video-Mouse (KVM) function makes it possible to attach a second workstation to the display and switch between two computers at the touch of a button.

Rajiv Bhalla, managing director, Barco India said, “The rising cases of new-age and chronic diseases have made us realise the importance of early diagnosis, regular screening and regular health check-ups. The radiology and mammography diagnostic landscape is constantly evolving, driven by the need for stricter regulatory & compliance standards and portability needs. Heavy workload & ergonomic stress levels coupled with the increasing complexity of cases, requires high resolution, accurate, calibrated colours and image quality to help reveal more details. The Nio Fusion 12MP addresses these diagnostic workstation challenges.”

The Nio Fusion 12MP model is thin, lightweight and was designed to mirror people’s natural field of vision to reduce head, hand and eye movements, the release added.
