Nürnberg Hospital chooses Barco displays

  • 5 March 2009

Medical imaging specialist Barco has won a large PACS display order from the Nürnberg Hospital South in Nürnberg, Germany.

Under an agreement with PACS provider MedicalCommunications GmbH, Barco will provide the hospital group with dedicated colour and greyscale display systems. Barco already supplies PACS displays for hospital Nürnberg North.

With 2,170 beds and 5,500 staff at two locations, the Nürnberg Hospital is the largest municipal hospital in Europe. The clinical centre treats 89,500 stationary and 66,300 ambulatory patients per year. In radiology, 40 radiologists perform 241,000 radiology examinations on average every year.

“This significant contract is an accolade for the fruitful collaboration between MedicalCommunications and Barco,” said Martin Schinkmann, CEO of MedicalCommunications GmbH.

Shinkman added: “Barco’s high-grade displays, including the brand-new Coronis Fusion 6MP DL, and our powerful Ashvins PACS make up an effective diagnostic solution that perfectly meets Nürnberg Hospital’s imaging demands.”

To ensure the long-term consistency of its PACS stations, the Nürnberg Hospital will also deploy Barco’s MediCal QAWeb tool for quality assurance. The secure online system includes smart features for intervention-free calibration, QA and display asset management throughout the entire hospital group.

MediCal QAWeb ensures radiologists at the hospital group can be confident that their displays are constantly compliant with the German DIN guidelines.
