Barco has introduced 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.

The Nio Color 5MP has been designed especially for radiology applications that require excellent grayscale rendition and detail. The unit also features sophisticated calibrated color that improves gray images, a feature previously only available on Barco’s Coronis Uniti display system.

Its aspect ratio is suited 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 SpotView technology to get a closer look at a particular region of interest.

SteadyColor technology is designed for consistency in color, from display to display, so radiologists can make a diagnosis based on reliable images. Additionally, the company’s sensor technology combined with MediCal QAWeb for automated calibration and quality assurance, was developed to ensure compliance with MQSA and QA guidelines.

The display also includes 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.

The product is currently pending FDA 510(k) clearance.
