Help combat cancer
When CCHE decided to upgrade its PACS solution, it purchased 12 Barco diagnostic display systems from the Coronis Fusion series, including 10 Coronis Fusion 6MP and two Coronis Fusion 10MP systems.
Proven to increase productivity by up to 19% compared to a dual-head 3MP set-up, Coronis Fusion 6MP is Barco's flagship product, with thousands of units installed in over 70 countries worldwide. It helps the radiologists and clinicians at CCHE to see subtle details quicker, thus allowing for more accurate diagnosis. In this way, Barco helps the hospital achieve its mission: to prevent and combat cancer through applied research, smart education and quality healthcare.
