National Institute for Public Health and the Environment

In 2006, the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in the Netherlands
(RIVM) set off on an ambitious journey to fully digitize its national breast cancer screening service. A consortium including Barco proved to be the best partner to meet the complex, large-scale requirements of the project.

As part of the project, 63 mobile screening units are equipped with Barco's Coronis 2MP display systems, while radiologists at 20 dedicated screening centers use Coronis 5MP
Mammo displays. 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.

In this way, Barco has helped RIVM to achieve its key objective of further enhancing its diagnostic performance to detect as many cases of breast cancer as possible at an early stage.
