Barco launches new generation of diagnostic displays that help radiologists read more studies more comfortably

Kortrijk, Belgium, 2 March 2016 — Over the years, Barco’s Coronis Fusion 6MP has become the preferred standard for radiologists worldwide. Now, Barco launches a new generation of its Coronis Fusion line, further boosting diagnostic accuracy as well as radiologist productivity. Discover the new line at ECR, Vienna, 2-6 March.
“The role of the radiologist is changing. With the shift to value-based healthcare, radiologists need to work more efficiently and interface more with patients. Add to this the increasing complexity of studies and you’ll understand why radiologists are focused on productivity now more than ever,” says Lynda Domogalla, VP Product Marketing Healthcare for Barco. “Image quality, workflow, and reading comfort are critical for optimal productivity. By taking all of these factors into account, our Coronis Fusion display systems have proven to improve radiologists’ daily practice.” 

Created for comfort 
According to a recent study by The MarkeTech Group, about 85% of radiologists use three displays or more. That’s why 87% of radiologists experience physical discomfort (such as back pain, neck strain, and eye fatigue) when reading images. With its 30” screen, Barco’s Coronis Fusion offers the highest screen real estate compared to competitive products, providing the perfect canvas for multimodality diagnostic imaging and enabling flexible positioning of images on a single screen. Together with its super wide viewing angle, Coronis Fusion not only reduces head and eye movements, but also minimizes image manipulations for a more ergonomic reading experience. 

Engineered to do better 
Built on the latest IPS panel technology, Coronis Fusion ensures a screen area that is 100% compliant with the ACR guideline for luminance ratio. It offers 50% more calibrated light (and 10% more just noticeable differences) for faster diagnosis of subtle details, improving radiologists’ workflow. 

Additionally, Coronis Fusion offers smart image-enhancing technologies to further improve detection probability. These include SpotViewTM technology to focus the light on lesions or abnormalities that require extra attention. It even allows you to double the size of the image in the focal spot so no detail goes unnoticed.

Efficient workflow 
Coronis Fusion display systems come with additional built-in features that help streamline workflow. By automating routine tasks they make reading sessions more efficient. Tools comprise VirtualViewTM (to create a virtual nav-head) and DimViewTM (to remove light pollution coming from surrounding displays), so radiologists can keep their focus on the details that really matter. 

Like all of Barco's radiology displays, Coronis Fusion is bundled with MediCal QAWeb – a cloud-based service for automated, remote calibration and Quality Assurance – which ensures the display is up and running to perfection at all times, with no interruptions to the radiologist’s workflow. 

A cost-effective unified system 
What’s more, with Barco radiology displays, you get a one-stop-shop solution. Each display system comes with an ultra-fast display controller – validated with the latest workstations and with all major PACS applications – and includes seamlessly integrated technologies to boost functionality and performance. This simplifies management of the entire display network and leads to significant reductions in operational expenditure. The Coronis Fusion display system comes with a warranty of 40,000 hours on the entire system. 

But don’t take our word for it 
Researchers from the Montefiore Medical Center found that Barco’s Coronis Fusion 6MP increases productivity by up to 19% and reduces eye strain compared to a dual-head 3MP workstation. Plus, the product won the Frost and Sullivan product line strategy award in 2013. That’s exactly why Coronis Fusion has been the market-leading product for the last 9 years, with thousands of units installed in over 70 countries worldwide. 

Let’s meet at ECR 
The new Coronis Fusion generation will be on display at ECR (Vienna, Austria), from 2-6 March, Barco Booth 201 (Expo B, lower level).
