Screening program runs Europe’s largest fleet of Barco Coronis Unitis

With the Coronis Uniti 12MP displays, our radiologists can view 4 screening rounds side by side to better track changes in the breast tissue.

In the detection and treatment of breast cancer, image quality is vital. Accurate images allow issues to be detected sooner and the diagnosis to be more precise. As early diagnosis is vital in successful treatment, national screening programs such as those run by the Facilitaire Samenwerking Borstkankeronderzoek (FSB) in the Netherlands, are looking for better quality displays. Barco’s solution enabled them to go even further.

When the team from the Dutch breast-screening program came to Barco, they were focused on detection during the radiology screening phase to enable early diagnosis and treatment that increases the chances of a positive outcome for the patient. But they also wanted to limit the emotional stress on the patient that can come from a false positive finding. 

Quality images – and better clinical outcomes
To satisfy this double goal, the Dutch research body opted to install 45 Coronis Uniti 12MPs in the radiology reading rooms and 96 Coronis Fusion 6MP displays for acquisition stations, including some in mobile units. 

The reason for this is that these displays are outstanding when it comes to image quality and clinical outcome:
Image quality of Coronis Uniti and Coronis Fusion 6MP in terms of luminance, contrast and resolution 
Workflow tools which optimize the clinical workflow.

Perhaps more significantly, the FSB specifically referred to the Barco workflow tools in their requirement specification. Barco’s Workflow tools SmartCursor, Conference CloneView and SoftGlow make viewing and sharing the results far easier.
Thanks to Barco’s tools the FSB’s workflow becomes smoother, and team members get a better view.
