Barco continued to grow its support of breast imaging education, supplying its latest mammography display systems, image projection software tool and technical support to assist in the delivery of more than 60 hands-on mammography education programs in over 20 countries worldwide. These workshops represent a robust combination of excellent teaching and best-in-class diagnostic imaging technologies. In addition, it reflects Barco’s partnership approach and commitment to breast imaging education.

Working with several industry-leading healthcare partners, Barco has supported a diverse curriculum of didactic sessions, hands-on training and case-based discussions. Barco has also contributed to individual hands-on workshops, providing more than 25 dual-head display stations per workshop comprised of Barco Mammo Tomosynthesis 5MP displays, Coronis 5MP Mammo displays and the new Conference CloneView software tool for large-format image projection.

“My hands-on courses are specifically designed to help radiologists to develop skills that will ultimately lead to fewer call-backs, and enable them to be more confident in reading a large number of mammograms,” comments Laszlo Tabar, MD, FACR (Hon) Course Director Professor Emeritus of Radiology.  “Their ability to report safely and at a higher level of quality depends upon having the very best medical displays. The reliability, excellent image clarity and consistency of the Barco displays, under any lighting conditions, make them ideal for our workshops. Barco displays were our first and only choice.” 

Additionally, the new Conference CloneView, which is essential for the classroom and collaboration, allows users to the project large-scale medical images from a Barco display through a projector and onto the main screen to share accurate information. Professor Tabar comments: “I am amazed and highly satisfied with the speed and image quality of the Conference CloneView. It makes very subtle, difficult-to-detect cancers and micro-calcifications clearly visible. I will use this at every course I teach from now on, and would highly recommend it to any medical educator as well as for multi-disciplinary team collaboration in the actual patient care setting.”
