Internship: Image processing test framework at Barco

Expires in 14 days

Background of Barco Healthcare

Barco develops high-precision medical display systems to bring enhanced visualization and diagnosis across the healthcare enterprise, including radiology, mammography, surgery, pathology, clinical review imaging and dentistry. Barco's full line of color and grayscale diagnostic displays, display controllers and softcopy Quality Assurance (QA) tools facilitate confident diagnoses while guaranteeing perfect image quality over time and across displays. Next to this Barco is also an important player in the Digital Operating Room market with the Barco NEXXIS platform, a unique image management solution that builds on the IP network to ensure complete integration of all devices in and beyond the operating room.


Barco Healthcare is continuously searching how the work of physician be made more efficient and how they can be supported in making the correct diagnosis. These are two very important factors when developing new products and visualization solutions. A way to make readings of doctors more efficient and to support them in their diagnosis is by applying image processing algorithms to enhance the visibility of features in medical images. To design and implement more efficiently these image processing methods, several libraries have been designed to abstract away the complexity of usual graphical API (DirectX, OpenGL, Vulkan, WebGL).
