Barco redefines the reading room with revolutionary diagnostic display to tackle radiologists’ challenges
Posted on Friday, October 17, 2014
 
Kortrijk, Belgium, 16 October 2014 — Today, healthcare visualization expert Barco announces the release of Coronis Uniti™, the first diagnostic display explicitly designed for both PACS and breast imaging. With its unparalleled image quality, inventive productivity features, and commitment to ergonomics, Coronis Uniti™ is Barco’s latest response to specific challenges in modern radiology: increasing image volumes, growing complexity, and ergonomic stress.
“With nearly 30 years of experience in healthcare imaging, we understand the radiology market and the challenges the industry is facing today. It’s this experience that led to the development of Coronis Uniti™, a diagnostic display system that unifies the workflow for radiologists,” says Lynda Domogalla, Vice President of product marketing for Barco’s Healthcare division.  

Radiologists’ most important issues were brought to light a few weeks ago, when healthcare research agency The MarkeTech Group revealed the results of its most recent radiology survey. The study, which interviewed over 200 radiologists from Europe and North America, also offered clear insights into possible solutions. For example, the majority of respondents indicated that higher image quality, a more efficient workflow, and increased comfort would significantly increase reading performance. 

Unified performance 
The features of the new Coronis Uniti display reflect Barco’s commitment to improve reading performance. By supporting both PACS and breast imaging, calibrated color and grayscale, 2D and 3D, and static as well as dynamic images, Coronis Uniti eliminates the need for multi-head display setups or moving to another workstation, thus increasing workflow efficiency while saving costs. Focused on driving productivity, Coronis Uniti is loaded with ingenious features that improve the reading experience. These include RapidFrame™ technology to ensure crisp and in-focus moving images and an innovative multi-touch pad for fast application control.

Unseen in the market 
The 12MP color screen offers the highest resolution available on the medical imaging market today. Furthermore, to meet the DICOM standard for grayscale images and to guarantee consistent color, the display is equipped with Barco’s industry-changing SteadyColor™ calibration technology. Additional special features such as Color Per Pixel Uniformity™ to reduce screen noise and Ambient Light Compensation™ ensure that image quality is flawless, in any lighting environment. The MediCal QAWeb™ software for automated calibration and Quality Assurance guarantees top performance without interruptions. 

Ergonomic experience 
According to MarkeTech’s study, no fewer than 87 percent of radiologists experience physical discomfort when reading images, ranging from eye fatigue to back pain. With Coronis Uniti, Barco has paid special attention to ergonomics as well. The display optimizes the reading experience by mirroring a human’s natural field of vision. Its carefully designed format minimizes the need for head and eye movements, while also creating the perfect canvas for side-by-side comparison of multiple images.

To reduce eye fatigue, the SoftGlow™ wall light adds ambient light to the reading room, while the SoftGlow™ task light shines a light on papers and film folders. Barco’s Optical Glass™ technology is also incorporated into the display, which reduces reflections and enhances image sharpness for greater viewing comfort. Additionally, Coronis Uniti can be turned into a virtual lightbox to compare film-based priors – using a handy film clip – with current digital exams.
