Canvys Announces New Image Systems 6MP LED Backlit Display and QC Vue at SIIM 2013

LaFox, Illinois – June 4, 2013… Canvys®, a division of Richardson Electronics, will introduce two significant developments at SIIM 2013 (Booth 521-523) including the Image Systems 6MP Color LED Backlit wide-screen display and QC Vue™, a browser-based tool for assessing image quality on mobile devices and displays.

The new Image Systems 6MP Color Display is a 30-inch class wide-screen display which sets the standard for value, quality, flexibility, and accuracy in diagnostic displays. The color LCD display features LED backlights that provide exceptionally high brightness and contrast. The front and rear luminance sensors and calibration features enable presentation of consistent diagnostic quality images that enhance workflow. Applications requiring a fusion of both high-fidelity grayscale and color images will benefit from this display, including PACS CR/DR grayscale images with color tools, PET, 3D, Cardiology, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, and Digital Pathology.

QC Vue is a new tool designed to address some of the quality control issues currently present with the rapidly growing deployment of mobile devices. This tool provides users with more assurance that they are seeing the subtle details of an image, and provides administrators with a control tool to better understand, assess, and implement a quality control program around the performance of deployed display devices.

David Sorensen, Director of Operations/Healthcare for Canvys, will be presenting information pertaining to quality control of mobile devices in a session entitled “Medical Imaging? There’s an App for That!” during the 2013 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM). The session will be held from 2:45 to 3:45 p.m. on Thursday, June 6 at the Longhorn Exhibit Hall Innovation Theater in the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine Texas. The session will be moderated by Dr. David S. Hirschorn, Director of Radiology Informatics at Staten Island University Hospital and nationally recognized speaker and researcher.

“Canvys has a long-standing commitment to the medical imaging community and our niche has been to supply quality display products, support services, and software tools that enable our customers to receive a high return value for their investment,” commented Mr. Sorensen. “Our new 6MP display and our innovative new QC Vue tool are good examples of what we bring to the market.”
