Medical imaging and PACS monitor manufacturer Barco Display Systems this month signed a purchase agreement with ultrasound developer Acuson to supply the Mountain View, CA-based company with more than 10,000 custom high-resolution color displays for Acuson’s Aspen and Sequoia ultrasound platforms. Barco’s 14-inch Medical Color Display (MCD 214) will be integrated with the two Acuson systems; MCD 214 features Barco’s TrueGrey electronic system, which renders ultrasound images with high image quality and color and gray-scale stability, allowing clinicians to see an exam’s small details. The Kortrijk, Belgium-based company’s 12-inch Medical Color Display (MCD 12) is already being used in Acuson’s 128XP ultrasound platform.
