    AMICON, or the Advanced Onco Imaging Conference, was organized by the department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Apollo Cancer Hospitals, in association with Chennai Subchapter of TN&PY IRIA and IIT Madras. The goal? To inform postgraduates, radiologists and surgical and medical oncologists of the latest imaging technologies on a cellular and functional level. To achieve this, the organization lined up an impressive number of national and international speakers and hands-on workshops.

Here, Barco demonstrated both the Eonis 24” clinical display and the Coronis Uniti multimodality display system.
