6 ways to support radiologists with cancer detection

We work with radiologists to enhance imaging technology and expand their clinical practice. Our focus: to remain dedicated to the advancement of diagnostic imaging, to revolutionize the radiology space, and to create better outcomes for radiologists and patients alike.

1. Attention to detail

Image quality is key to seeing details in the image. Medical displays with unique image-enhancing technologies to ensure the best in luminance, image uniformity, local contrast and viewing angle really make a difference in the correct interpretation of some of the most subtle details.

2. Optimal detection

The higher the brightness, the more just noticeable differences (the threshold at which a change on the screen can be perceived) the human eye can detect. That’s why we developed I-Luminate to temporarily boost display luminance.

3. Increased focus

Focused observation of a particular area of the image can enhance the visibility of subtle features, which would otherwise be difficult to detect. Tools like Barco’s SpotView help you take a closer look at a particular area, by enhancing the contrast and brightness in the section of interest, and dimming the surrounding area. It also allows you to double the size of the image in the focal spot so no detail goes unnoticed.

4. Easy comparison of studies

Invest in a Fusion format – combining two displays into one – for multimodality imaging, so you can lay out multiple images anywhere on the screen. When you’re screening for breast cancer, look for a display that enables multimodality breast imaging.

5. Elimination of eye or neck strain

More reading comfort can help you to keep your focus, so choose a display that is designed to present images within your optimal field of vision. This minimizes the need for head and eye movements so you can comfortably view all images without stress or strain.

6. Diagnostic confidence

For accurate reading and confidence in your analysis, diagnostic images must be reliable and consistent. Proven calibration and QA standards (DICOM GSDF) have been in place for many years for grayscale images. However, color images also need additional monitoring. That’s why we introduced the industry’s first color calibration technology as well as color per pixel uniformity. So you can be confident about your diagnosis at all times.
