Esaote recently launched MyLab9, its flagship ultrasound system in radiology and shared services, which offers clarity in image quality along with performance and workflow improvement for more efficient and informed healthcare. In addition to new advanced features and hi-tech transducers, the new system configuration includes the latest state-of-the-art 24-inch Eonis display engineered by Barco. The Eonis display presents sharp, bright images and exceptional colors with high contrast for perfect visualization of ultrasound images. The display’s unique front consistency sensor automatically aligns the image quality every time the display is switched on and maintains the luminance for consistent image quality and brightness.

“We are keen to keep investing in delivering the best quality with no compromise: that's why we selected Barco, one of the most accredited partners in radiology to boost performance in the Esaote’s MyLab9 top-end product,” said Luca Bombino, Global Product Marketing Manager.

“Our partnership with Esaote is a clear demonstration of our mission to co-create technology solutions for integrated care. By combining our expertise in diagnostic visualization with the skillset of partners such as Esaote, we are convinced we can enable better health outcomes for more people,” said Mark Bultinck, VP Sales EMEA for Barco Healthcare.
