Everyone involved in the program praises the displays' incomparable level of sharpness and contrast and the speed and ease of loading and manipulating the images.
  • Diagnosis of medical images requires high image quality, high brightness and a high contrast ratio. Today, it is possible to diagnose certain disorders in an early stage. Shin Kong Wu Ho-Su Memorial Hospital (Shin Kong Hospital for short), one of Taiwan's biggest private medical facilities, recently experienced what a good PACS display system can do. When a trial involving the Barco Coronis Fusion 6MP DL revealed details the other displays did not, the team at Shin Kong unanimously chose Barco. Today, Shin Kong's radiology department uses Coronis Fusion 6MP DLs, Coronis 5MP, Nio Fusion 4MPs and MDRC-2120s – much to everyone's satisfaction.
  • The hospital purchased 100 Barco monitors for use throughout multiple facilities, with 16 5MPs and 16 3MPs dedicated to its mammography centers, and the remainder located in diagnostic and clinical review stations. Tying it all together, is Barco's MediCal QAWeb software, the industry's first online service for automated QA of PACS displays, providing remote, secure management to ensure consistent performance and image quality. But to Gwinnett, like many users, the benefits of this robust QA assurance software go well beyond the reading room.
  • The German Bergmannstrost Hospital was a pioneer in adopting digital acquisition modalities and PACS. Barco's bold claim that they “deliver the best display performance” made Dr. Rainer Braunschweig, head of the radiology department and an expert in digital radiology, switch to the Barco Coronis range in 2002. Impressed by the displays' outstanding image quality, reliability, excellent return on investment and the MediCal QAWeb quality assurance service, the Bergmannstrost radiology team has been a Barco advocate ever since. Recently, they upgraded the Coronis portfolio to include several color displays. In the medium term, Dr. Braunschweig dreams of operating rooms fitted with Barco surgical displays.
  • The hospital was looking for a uniform display system that could be used in all departments and in both locations. Dr Willy Hummel continues, “We did a careful evaluation of various manufacturers and Barco came out as the best solution for us. The combination of their clinical review displays with MediCal QAWeb software guarantees us DICOM compliant images at all times. The software program also offers a functionality to adjust the light output of the display in order to match the ambient light, a feature that assures us even more dependable readings. Upon special request, Barco also increased the remote capabilities of MediCal QAWeb to meet our high standard requirements for clinical review displays.”
