Brazilian diagnostic imaging leader installs Barco’s medical displays

Lesezeit 1 Min.

The Brazilian Institute for Research and Education in Diagnostic Medicine (IPmed) has recently installed Barco’s MDRC-2120 clinical review displays in its Digital Education Laboratory (LED), where students can experience the latest developments in diagnostic hardware and software. IPmed is confident that Barco technology reflects the high standards and quality levels of its educational programs.

 

Ipmed was set up by Brazil’s Foundation Institute for Research and Study for Diagnostic Imaging (FIDI) to help Brazil’s medical professionals upgrade their diagnostic imaging skills. The three dedicated IPmed schools (Medical, Technical and Nursing) provide medical professionals with the opportunity to review and update the theoretical and practical concepts of their specialty.

To deepen and crystallize the knowledge gained in the classrooms, IPmed created the concept of the Digital Education Laboratory (LED) – a facility where students can experience the latest developments in diagnostic hardware and software. The lab is equipped with advanced technologies, like PACS workstations and state-of-the-art medical display systems. Together with FIDI, IPmed chose Barco’s MDRC-2120 20-inch clinical review displays to view the most diverse radiology images. Everyone is delighted with the solution and the cooperation with Barco.

“Our goal is to make IPmed one of the country's leading institutes in the field of diagnostic imaging,” Dr. André Yui Aihara, Technical Director, said. “In the coming years, we want to expand the number of LEDs, so additional medical display systems will be needed. We won’t hesitate, even for a moment, to contact Barco for additional systems. ”
