Barco makes flagship 6MP diagnostic display system brighter and greener with LED backlights

Kortrijk, Belgium, 26 November 2012 – Healthcare imaging specialist Barco announces the launch of the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED. Using high-bright LED backlights, the new diagnostic display system enhances clinical performance by making subtle details more noticeable more quickly. The Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED will be on display at RSNA 2012, Chicago, 25-30 November.

“Barco’s diagnostic display systems are designed to optimize workflow productivity,” Lynda Domogalla, Barco’s VP Product Marketing Healthcare, comments. “In terms of managing image reading workload, the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL is our flagship product. Using the display as one seamless widescreen desktop or two bezel-free 3MP heads, it enables simultaneous reading of color, grayscale and fused modalities. Now the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL is also available with LED backlights – boosting brightness levels even further for enhanced diagnostic performance, while saving energy and extending lifespan.”

Brighter images
Barco’s high-bright LED backlights render more Just Noticeable Differences (JNDs) to help radiologists see more shades of gray. Unveiling the smallest details, the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED reduces windowing and leveling time and allows radiologists to read more studies each day.

New display technologies
“We want to make sure that our LED backlit displays offer the same image quality and clinical performance that people have come to expect from Barco,” Domogalla adds. “That’s why we’ve developed new image enhancing technologies for the unique characteristics of LED backlit displays.”

Built on Barco’s patented uniformity technologies, ULT-LED removes panel noise and renders uniform DICOM images from center to corner. I-MST – an intelligent multi-sensor system combining Barco’s high-precision I-Guard photometer with backlight, ambient light and temperature sensors – ensures consistent image quality over time.

Greener performance
Using power-efficient backlights, Barco’s Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED is as low in power consumption as it is high in brightness. Additionally, because LED backlights have a longer lifetime than traditional CCFL lamps and contain no mercury, they reduce environmental waste.

Smart investment
Because it uses less power, the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED also produces less heat and requires less cooling, reducing the overall operational and maintenance costs for the hospital. Adding to this the display’s ultra-high brightness, automated and enterprise-wide QA and calibration system, and unique technologies to optimize workflow, the Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED offers a high return on investment.

A new generation
More of Barco’s diagnostic display systems will be equipped with LED backlights in the near future. The Coronis Fusion 6MP DL LED is the first of this new LED-lit generation and will be on display at RSNA 2012 in Chicago, 25-30 November, booth #8329.
