Barco’s Coronis Uniti displays will be featured in Hologic’s Breast Health Educational Hands-on Workshops in the South Hall, Booth 5621.

Multimodality solutions enable bright outcomes centered on patient care
Barco will present its growing portfolio of mammography and general radiology displays designed to reveal the subtlest details and improve precise detection at the earliest stages of disease. Barco solutions enable radiologists to see and know more to make better clinical decisions and enhance patient outcomes.
Barco’s fully optimized display systems enhance reading speed and accuracy, with many featuring intuitive workflow tools and all supported by Barco’s automated QA and compliance solution, MediCal QAWeb.

The Coronis Uniti® is the only multi-modality breast imaging display that also allows viewing of PACS images. Radiologists can view perfect grayscale and precisely calibrated color, and clearly see the subtlest details to improve clinical decision-making. Complete studies can be conducted without multiple monitor set-ups, boosting workflow efficiency and reducing visual fatigue.

The Coronis Fusion 6MP is the industry’s proven radiology workhorse for multi-modality imaging. The brightest 6MP available, it delivers superior image quality while increasing productivity.

Solutions to optimize home reading
The Nio Color 3MP brings hospital-quality imaging to radiologists’ home office desktops. It offers the best image quality of any 3MP color solution on the market, helping clinicians discern even the tiniest details, thanks to high brightness (500 cd/m2) and contrast ratio.
