Dutch hospital adopts Barco diagnostic display

Barco has received an order for its Coronis Fusion 6MP DL, a 6-megapixel diagnostic display system, under a PACS installation project at the Beatrix Hospital in Gorinchem, the Netherlands. Philips Healthcare is filling the PACS installation order.

Coronis Fusion 6MP DL extends Barco’s diagnostic display offering with its 30-inch color LCD that can be used either as two seamless 3-megapixel heads or as one wide-screen 6-megapixel display, according to the Kortrijk, Belgium-based company.

Barco said that with its system, radiologists can read chest x-rays, CT scans, MR scans, cath and echo cardiogram images, or any other combination, side by side on a single diagnostic screen. The wide-screen LCD is combined with a display controller and an online system for automated softcopy quality assurance.

The 325-bed Beatrix Hospital belongs to the Rivas Healthcare Group, which provides healthcare services to the Dutch provinces of South-Holland, Gelderland and Utrecht, and has approximately 10,000 admissions yearly.
