Barco intuitive workflow tools for medical displays: CloneView video

As a radiologist, you’re a key member of the multi-disciplinary team (MDT) involved in the care of cancer patients, where all members share their views both on the diagnostic and the therapeutic part of care. When recommendations are given, they are often based on clinical images, which is why radiologists need the best tools to share breast images with their peers. 

“We all get together and discuss every patient who has breast cancer twice. At first, when we’ve taken a biopsy to decide how we are going to proceed treatment-wise. Then we discuss them after they’ve had their surgery as well,” explains Dr. Philip Savage, radiologist at Oxford University Hospitals. “So you get more than one opinion. The patients can be reassured that they have a whole team of people, sometimes maybe 30 clinicians, all thinking about their case.” 

When discussing a patient’s case, you’ll want to share clinical images and discuss them with your colleagues. But getting the image from your display onto a large screen isn’t always that simple. Images can look distorted or stretched, or only part of the image is displayed.

That’s why we developed Conference CloneView™. This tool allows you to effortlessly share the images from one or two medical displays onto any projector or large screen, and without loss of details. It also allows zooming and panning as well as side-by-side comparisons. 

With clinical decisions often based on images, this tool is a great way to boost collaboration in the MDT. Check out the video to see how easy it is to use Conference CloneView.
