Radiologists boost reading accuracy, streamline workflow with Barco’s pioneering diagnostic displays, featured at RSNA 2015

Atlanta, Ga. USA – 18 November 2015 – Healthcare imaging specialist Barco continues to lead the industry in breakthroughs that empower radiologists to quickly and accurately diagnose medical issues and detect breast cancer at its earliest stages. Its latest display system, the Coronis Uniti,™ represents another milestone in diagnostic imaging, delivering on the promise of “one display, any image” to streamline workflow and enable clinicians to complete studies faster and begin treatment sooner. See this solution and other Barco innovations at the annual RSNA conference, November 29-December 3 in Chicago, Illinois.

With today’s radiologists facing mounting workloads, the pressure has never been greater to read more studies, faster, while maintaining a high degree of accuracy. However, more than 50 percent of clinicians participating in a poll sponsored by Barco stated that the growing complexity of studies is a challenge, and they are often frustrated by productivity barriers. The majority expressed a desire for automated display features that improve workflow and collaboration, optimize layout for multi-modality studies, and improve reading ergonomics.

Diagnose faster, treat sooner to improve health outcomes
Barco has developed the Coronis Uniti display system to solve these issues with the ultimate goal of delivering more timely and effective health care.

“We have harnessed our latest breakthroughs in medical display technology to create solutions that help radiologists manage the growing volume and complexity of studies,” comments Lynda Domogalla, Vice President Product Marketing for Barco Healthcare. “The Coronis Uniti display system supports clinicians’ ability to diagnose faster and thus begin treatment sooner with a display that dramatically improves their workflow and reduces occupational stress all day long. Also, with its ability to present both PACS and mammography images on the same screen, it not only increases efficiency, but also reduces equipment costs since it eliminates the need for multi-display workstations.”

Rapidly embraced by the radiology community
Attesting to the widespread popularity of the display system, orders of the Coronis Uniti have well surpassed the 1,000 mark. Recent customers applaud its expansive real estate and crystal clear 12 megapixel resolution, which sharpens images and facilitates reading of complex studies on a single screen – reducing tiresome head and eye movement.

“I can view multiple images simultaneously in workflow fashion, without the distraction and discomfort of viewing several monitors,” comments Robin Shermis, MD, Medical Director, ProMedica Breast Care and member of Toledo Radiological Associates.

The only display for multi-modality breast imaging
The Coronis Uniti also recently earned additional FDA clearance for specialty imaging exams beyond the original indication for 2D and 3D mammography, to encompass multiple breast imaging modalities: breast MRI, breast ultrasound, CT and ultrasound, and vascular and gynecological ultrasound. Optimized with patented I-Luminate™ technology offering 4 times the brightness of conventional mammography displays, the Coronis Uniti enables radiologists to see extremely subtle details with greater clarity. This is especially important in helping to make better clinical decisions in dense breast tissue.

Barco diagnostic imaging continues to revolutionize the reading room
The Coronis Uniti display system is the newest in a long line of game-changing diagnostic displays, including the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL, Mammo Tomosynthesis 5MP, and Eonis clinical displays – each revolutionizing the industry with never-before-seen capabilities at the time of their introduction. The Coronis Uniti is the first display that allows simultaneous viewing of 2D and 3D, grayscale and color, and static and dynamic images on the same screen. This powerful combination of capabilities and new Intuitive Workflow features enable radiologists to streamline their workflow and complete entire studies on a single display, increasing their reading efficiency while reducing stress, strain and fatigue.
