Optimum Breast Screening Monitor
The monitor has obtained FDA 510(k) clearance by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for breast tomosynthesis and mammography. This ensures that the monitor is capable of displaying detailed breast screening images where high performance is essential.
Achieve Clarity True to the Source Data
A medical monitor needs to be capable of high brightness in order to meet performance standards. However, in order to achieve high brightness in an LCD panel, the pixel aperture ratio has to be increased. This causes a typically unavoidable decline in sharpness. With EIZO's unique Sharpness Recovery technology, the decrease in sharpness (MTF) is restored. This allows you to display an image safely on the monitor that is true to the original source data, even at high brightness levels.
MTF measures numerically how faithfully the panel transfers detail from the original image data for viewing. When Sharpness Recovery is turned on, in the case of a 2-pixel line pair (spatial frequency of 1.515 cycles/mm) the MTF increases by approximately 52%.
Create the Ideal Environment
The black front bezels are ideal for viewing the screen in dark reading rooms, making it easier to focus on images, while the original white stripe around the sides of the monitor presents a fresh, clean aesthetic.
Save Work Space with Sleek Cabinet Design
The monitor's width, height, and depth were reduced by 21 mm, 36 mm, and 45.5 mm respectively – 28% less space than its predecessor, saving more workspace for other tasks. The width of the side bezels was reduced by approximately half to 13.5 mm – the thinnest in the industry for 5-megapixel monitors. This allows users to comfortably view two monitors side by side to compare images.
Save on Power Consumption
The monitor uses a new panel equipped with an energy-efficient LED backlight which reduces power consumption by 17% compared to its predecessor.
Hassle-Free Multi-Monitor Configuration
Using the DisplayPort connection, you can drive several monitors in a daisy chain sequence. This allows you to configure a multi-monitor setup without the complicated hassle of excessive cabling.
Variations for Specific User Needs
EIZO offers anti-glare (AG) and anti-reflection (AR) screen variations to suit user environments. AG treatment is ideal for exceptionally bright environments and drastically reduces glare from ambient lighting. AR treatment is ideal for moderately-lit environments to reduce mild screen glare while maintaining crisp text and images.
View Mammography Images Clearly
5-megapixel monitors allow you to see smaller details that are essential in digital mammography. The high resolution retains important information to prevent decreased image quality and pixelation that occur when viewing at a lower resolution.
Clearly Distinguish Microcalcifications
To detect the smallest structures, the monitor offers a high contrast ratio to accurately render the finer details. The deeper black levels distinguish similar shades of gray for clearly identifying spicules and microcalcifications in monochrome images.
10-Bit Simultaneous Grayscale Display
10-bit (1,024 tones) simultaneous grayscale display extends grayscale fidelity to the boundaries of human visual perception abilities and helps radiologists discern the finest nuances within an image.
Make the Precise Diagnosis
EIZO carefully measures and sets each grayscale tone to create a monitor compliant with DICOM Part 14. This ensures the most consistent shading possible for the most accurate diagnosis.
Maintain the Precision
Perform a simplified calibration for DICOM Part 14 using the bundled RadiCS LE quality control software. RadiCS LE corrects the brightness and grayscale tones of the monitor to maintain image accuracy and consistency over time.
Manage Effortless Quality Control
An Integrated Front Sensor (IFS) housed within the front bezel measures brightness and grayscale tones and calibrates to the DICOM Part 14 standard. The hands-free IFS performs quality control tasks and does not interfere with the viewing area while in use. This dramatically cuts the workload and maintenance costs needed for maintaining monitor quality control.
Attain Steady Images Across the Screen
The Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) function helps to even out fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen to provide smoother images, a quality typically difficult to attain due to the characteristics of LCD monitors.
View Accurate Images in Moments
The EIZO-patented drift correction function quickly stabilizes the brightness level of the monitor upon the startup of wakeup from sleep mode, giving you the most accurate images quickly ready for viewing. In addition, a sensor measures the backlight brightness and automatically compensates for brightness fluctuations caused by ambient temperature and aging for a consistently stable display.
Comfortably View from Any Angle
Wide viewing angles allow you to view the screen from the side with minimal color shift, also permitting more than one person to view the monitor comfortably at the same time.
Select the Ideal Mode for Modalities
The CAL Switch function allows you to choose various modes for different modalities such as mammography, MRI, and ultrasound. It can be conveniently accessed using the monitor's front panel buttons to easily switch to optimal image viewing conditions.
Conserve Energy While Away
A presence sensor prompts the monitor to switch to power save mode when the user is away and resumes operation upon their return to conserve power when not in use, uniting convenience with savings.
EIZO's highly versatile stand offers tilt and a wide height adjustment range for using the monitor with greater comfort.
Mammography QC Standards Compliance
EIZO's easy-to-use RadiCS UX1 quality control tool (sold separately) performs precise calibration conforming to DICOM Part 14 and enables quality control (QC) complying with ACR Practice Guideline and other QC standard for digital mammography monitors.
Rest Assured with Medical Qualifications
The monitor meets the strictest medical, safety, and EMC emission standards.
