Barco: FDA OK s DICOM projection system and VC software
Barco announced at the European Congress in Radiology, March 5 - 7, in Vienna, Austria that its medical grade projection system - DICOM Theater Pro - has received U.S. FDA 510(k) clearance.
The DICOM Theater Pro is a large screen projection system for medical imaging that can reproduce grayscale images from a PACS network.
The system bundles a high-bright Medical Grade Projector (MGP 15), a dedicated BarcoMed display controller, MediCal Pro softcopy QA management software and one or more color or grayscale flat-panel displays into a multi-purpose, DICOM-compliant projection system.
Applications include clinical reviewing, medical rounds, radiology lectures, video conferencing and training sessions.
In related news, Barco announced at ECR its Voxar Colonscreen CT colonography software has been granted FDA approval. Voxar Colonscreen is now cleared for both the examination of symptomatic patients and the screening of asymptomatic patients for the detection of colonic polyps, tumors and other lesions, Barco said.
The software is equipped with a wide range of reading and reporting tools for simultaneous 2D and 3D viewing of prone and supine images. Automatic reporting allows physicians to generate on-the-fly reports as they diagnose. These reports can then be exported straight to PACS as a Word document or DICOM report, Barco said.
