An upgraded version of Barco’s Coronis 5MP Mammo mammography display system has begun shipping. The new version includes a 12-bit DICOM look-up table, which produces 4096 simultaneous shades of gray, thereby providing the most subtle of details in digital mammography images, according to the company. Precision is further enhanced by the company’s next generation Per Pixel Uniformity technology, which measures and adjusts the luminance output of the five million on-screen pixels. The upgraded system incorporates a special version of the MediCal QAWeb service, which includes a dedicated mammography quality check.
