Barco continues to impact clinical outcomes with new color display for general radiology and mammography

Healthcare imaging specialist Barco introduces a new diagnostic color display with a 5.8 megapixel resolution, making it suitable for general radiology as well as breast imaging, including breast tomosynthesis. It comes with Barco’s unique color calibration technology for consistent images, whether in color or in grayscale, to ensure the accuracy of the display and to support confident diagnostic decisions.

• High-resolution color display cleared for mammography
• With smart workflow tools
• Unique color calibration

The future is in color

Many radiologists will order supplementary imaging exams to see additional detail and get a more holistic view of a patient’s condition. It’s why color imaging is more and more important and why the consistency of color images matters.

A display designed to improve breast imaging

That’s why Barco introduced the Nio Color 5MP. It has been designed especially for demanding radiology applications that require excellent grayscale rendition and detail, especially appreciated in mammography and breast tomosynthesis. In addition, it includes sophisticated calibrated color that also improves gray images, a feature previously only available on Barco’s groundbreaking Coronis Uniti® display system.

No detail unnoticed

With its 5.8 megapixel resolution, the new Nio offers more pixels than traditional mammography displays, so you can see more of the image. Its aspect ratio is a perfect fit for tall X-ray images – especially for the MLO view in mammography – resulting in less panning and zooming for a better reading experience. It also comes with Barco’s SpotViewTM technology to get a closer look at a particular region of interest.

Steady colors and grays

Just like the DICOM standard ensures consistent grayscales across displays, color images need additional monitoring, correction and calibration too in order to render them in a meaningful way. That’s why Barco developed its SteadyColor™ technology. It ensures consistency in color, from display to display, so radiologists can make a diagnosis based on reliable images.

Barco’s renowned sensor technology combined with MediCal QAWeb for automated calibration and Quality Assurance, makes sure every image is displayed to perfection in a highly regulated environment. With MediCal QAWeb, compliance with MQSA and QA guidelines is effortless.

Smart, operationally and financially

Like most of Barco’s medical displays, Nio Color 5MP comes with a set of tools to help radiologists work smarter, not harder. These include features for dimming of auxiliary displays, enhancing visualization of details, and personalizing display settings, such as Clearbase or BlueBase, switchable on the same display, even per radiologist.

Enabling visualization of both general radiology and mammography images, Nio Color 5MP eliminates the need for separate workstations. This leads to reductions in display cost, real estate, and the operational expenditure required to maintain an enterprise-wide display fleet.

Navya Network- online expert opinion service for cancer patients

Navya Expert Opinion Service ushers in a revolutionary approach in cancer care by empowering patients with critical information within 24 hours. This enables families make informed decisions with adequate inputs from oncologists at Tata Memorial Centre and National Cancer Grid (including cancer centers like AIIMS, Kidwai, Max Hospital, etc.). This service, available at www.navya.care, allows patients to upload their medical test reports and obtain a response from world-renowned experts within 24 hours, saving precious time that is often spent in travel and getting doctor appointments.

Balancing the need to act quickly while ensuring that the decision is made with all relevant expert inputs is when Navya’s Online Expert Opinion Service becomes a powerful ally. The quick turnaround is owed to the expert decision system that uses clinical informatics, predictive analytics and machine learning to recommend evidence and experience-based expert treatment decisions, similar to decisions made by expert tumor boards. The system has been validated in clinical trials at TMC and the University of CaliforniaOlive View Medical Centre, showing 98 percent agreement between the system’s decisions and the tumor boards’ decisions. These results have been published at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium and the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

While diagnosing the presence of cancer is a standard process, treatment is highly specialized and the number of experts capable of managing complex cases is few. Many types of cancers are curable or can be managed for several years if diagnosed early and treated appropriately. Choosing the right therapy can be the difference between the best possible outcome and failed treatment.

Gitika Srivastava, Founder of Navya, says: “Most people who have had any experience with cancer are aware that given time and logistical constraints, it is not always feasible to go to tertiary care centers in metropolitan cities at each treatment decision point. Given the importance of treatment decisions in yielding the best possible outcomes, we would urge everyone to get an expert opinion through TMC NCG Online.

By working with Navya, patients can receive the best possible treatment opinion, which includes the therapy most suited (surgery, chemotherapy, radiotherapy or immunotherapy) as well as dosage, duration, side effects and other details pertinent to the treatment. The detailed report, that answers all questions, asked by the patient in language that is simple to understand, can then be shared with the local oncologist to proceed with the treatment locally.

We understand the anxiety in knowing what to do as quickly as possible, and hence have strived to ensure that we facilitate the opinion from the experts within 24 hours of getting all necessary medical reports. When deciding on treatment, you and your oncologist can be assured that the opinion rests on the experience of world renowned cancer experts and follows evidence-based protocols best suited to your specific case,” Gitika added.

With Asia becoming a global hub for medical tourism, key stakeholders from across the healthcare services and medical tourism industry will come together at the Asia Medical Tourism Congress India (AMCTI). A platform created by The Times Group in partnership with World Medical Tourism Congress (WMTC), the world leader in medical tourism conferences, AMCTI is an event cum exhibition envisioned to be the largest congregation of the Medical Tourism industry in India.

India ranks among the leading medical tourism destinations in Asia, mainly due to the low cost of treatment, high quality of healthcare infrastructure and the widespread availability of highly-skilled doctors. Rising healthcare costs in developed countries and an increase in the numbers of the uninsured has also driven the expansion of the medical tourism industry, with the industry projected to grow at 25% annually.

AMTCI is a 2-day show offering a platform for discussions around trends and opportunities presented by Medical Tourism to position India as a leading wellness travel destination. AMTCI will open up multiple business opportunities in the medical tourism sector in India.

Commenting on the event, Mr. Deepak Lamba, President, Times Strategic Solutions Limited stated, “With India poised to play a bigger role in the global health tourism segment, we look forward to working alongside the World Medical Tourism Association, by launching AMTCI to service this sector in a holistic manner. AMTCI would impact the global medical ecosystem as it is set to see participation from over 30 countries.”

Commenting on the AMTCI, Mr. Jonathan Edelheit, CEO of Medical Tourism Association, This event will continue to help raise India’s brand and awareness in medical tourism.   The MTA is bringing in buyers from around the world to network with the top leading Indian and Asian hospitals.       The World Medical Tourism Congress will give a great impetus to this growth as healthcare institutions, state governments, investors from around the world and corporates come together to explore business opportunities.  Medical Tourism not only impacts the healthcare markets, but lifts up the countries entire economy and infrastructure.”

With participation by 50 + international speakers, 4 + conference tracks, up to 150 hosted qualified VIP buyers from international markets, 1000 + delegates and 100 + exhibitors displaying a wide variety of products, AMTCI has all the ingredients needed to give the medical tourism ecosystem a shot in the arm.
