Color-calibrated, artifact-free images

Thanks to its high brightness, high contrast and high resolution, the MDSC-2242 presents surgeons with accurate, realistic images and excellent depth perception. It also offers the fastest, lag-free transmission of surgical images and the highest image quality available today.

Our next-generation motion adaptive de-interlacing and noise reduction algorithms, using full 10-bit image processing and a 12-bit look-up table, make the MDSC-2242 ideal for consulting PACS images in the OR.

Multi-source, multi-display imaging over IP

With its broad input connectivity, the MDSC-2242 offers the highest flexibility for multi-modality imaging (PiP & PaP), enabling reproduction of images from multiple sources and to multiple displays in the integrated operating room.

The 42-inch display is one of Barco's network-enabled surgical displays and offers integrated functionality (optional) for use with Nexxis digital OR, ensuring smooth distribution of uncompressed video and data over the IP network without delay.

Designed for use in the operating room

Barco's MDSC-2242 allows easy cleaning and disinfection thanks to its anti-reflective protective front glass. The fan-less design avoids the spread of contaminants in the operating room.

Enabling bright outcomes

Imagine a way to see, sense, and share the intangible. It’s what happens when big data becomes knowledge. When images become insight. And when experiences come to life. That’s what Barco is all about.

Focused on transforming the delivery of care, Barco connects healthcare professionals at every patient touchpoint, from the imaging room to radiology, through specialist consultations and into the surgical suite. We offer a network of medical imaging solutions that deliver the complete picture to support more informed decisions, when and where it matters most.

More than a medical display

Increasing image volumes, the growing complexity of studies, and physical discomfort while reading are the three biggest challenges radiologists face today. That is the conclusion of a 2014 survey conducted by The MarkeTech Group. The solutions? Improved image quality (91%), a more efficient workflow (77%), and better display ergonomics (70%), as indicated by radiologists themselves.

We are able to provide capabilities that can improve the reading experience in all aspects: speed, accuracy, intuitiveness, flexibility and ergonomics. How? By offering a complete imaging solution – high-quality display, ultra-fast controller for fast image loading and manipulation and automated calibration & QA to ensure peak performance and uptime – in which all components function smoothly as a unified system.

Barco’s integrated technology platform enables us to develop a unique set of Intuitive Workflow features resulting in increased reading accuracy and decreased reading time. Only Barco display systems offer this diagnostic toolset, which adds a new dimension to radiologists’ workflow by streamlining frequent tasks with automated features. Designed to help you speed through your workload with ease, these builtin, easy-to-use functions appear at your command, seamlessly paving the way for effortless productivity and working comfort.
