6 reasons for choosing SpotView
Barco has a range of clinical tools that helps radiologists work smarter. SpotView™ is one of the most impactful tools in the bunch. It boosts luminance in a region of interest to increase visibility of small details and speed up workflow. If you haven’t tried it yet, here’s why you should:

1. Simple to use

You can activate SpotView with a simple keystroke, customizable and programmable to any input device, for seamless integration into your workflow.

2. Analysis made easy

SpotView provides multiple shapes for image analysis and comparison. The spot can be magnified by 2x to unveil the tiniest details. The other modes are ideal for image review and segmentation.

Especially helpful when looking at subtle details in pediatric images.  Commonly used to visualize the end point for line and tube placement.  Helps with segmented or sequenced viewing or comparing current vs prior studies.  Ideal for methodical mammography screening.

3. Lowers radiation dose

Because SpotView boosts luminance and enhances contrast in a unique way, it may be possible to reduce mammography radiation dose significantly without impacting diagnostic accuracy.1

4. Increases reading accuracy

A recent study reveals that radiologists can increase their reading accuracy by 6% when using SpotView.1 When screening for hard to find cancers, this really makes a difference.

5. Reduces reading time

With SpotView, radiologists can reduce the time spent on reading exams by no less than 16%.1 This means that they can read more exams each day.

6. Recommended by peers

Many doctors and industry experts recommend SpotView. Here’s what they say:

“SpotView can decrease errors of perception and I have found it to be helpful in maintaining my focus when scanning patterns are made difficult by distractions or eye fatigue. I have found abnormalities using SpotView even though I thought I had finished searching a case.”
