The history of medical device manufacturing dates back to the 1980s, when the company presented a 10-inch monitor with high image sharpness and maintenance-free calibration system, gaining leadership in the market of products for echography and magnetic resonance. In 1998, BARCO implemented the revolutionary MeDis system with a comprehensive solution for imaging and computer diagnostics using an entire system of medical displays with software. In the same year, BARCO became the first company in the world to receive 510(k) certification from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for medical monitors. In the 21st century, the company consolidated its market leadership by releasing the Coronis series in 2014, which is dedicated to professional diagnostic, PACS and breast exam imaging applications. Most importantly, studies have shown that the use of these monitors resulted in a 30% increase in breast cancer detection. Stovaris will offer its customers the entire portfolio of medical monitors, assisting with installations and deployments.
