Barco’s top model is the 30-inch Coronis Fusion 6mp, which delivers a DICOM-calibrated luminance of 800 candela and allows simultaneous reading of color, grayscale and fused modalities. It is capable for the latest 3D CT, MR and PET applications in combination with standard 2D PACS reading.
Color is being used more in ultrasound, PET and CAD (computer-aided diagnostics), NEC’s Swiderski says. “There are other drivers and we’re positioning a few for color. “Ultrasound sometimes uses color for blood flow. Nuclear medicine can show blood flow in the heart. Ultrasound technology is getting much, much better. There’s 3D reconstruction going on where software takes the grayscale and reconstructs it into a 3D image.
“From a marketing standpoint, color is about 30 percent of the market. The shift is going slowly. We see 2011 as the 50 percent crossover. Typically, medical adopts slowly.”
