Ensuring Exceptionally Accurate and Stable Imaging With the EIZO RadiForce G&R-Series Medical Displays

Information Volume of Medical Images and Monitors

Information volume of the medical image differs depending on the modality which creates the image. When installing monitors in your hospital, it is important to consider the "information volume" of the medical images that the monitor needs to display.






For example, a 1 megapixel monitor can display 4 slices of CT with an information volume of 512 × 512 pixels, a 2 megapixel monitor can display 6 slices, and a 3 megapixel monitor can display 12 slices without losing any of the information. 






However, a chest CR which has an information volume of 1760 × 2150 pixels can only be displayed partially with a 1 or 2 megapixel monitor. Thus, in order to display the full image, the information must be stretched causing a thinning effect of the image. Using a 3 megapixel monitor, the image can be displayed fully without the information being thinned-out and a resulting loss in image quality. 





RadiForce with the Selection of Optimum Diagnostic Monitors

It is important to select the monitor which suits the medical images. With RadiForce diagnostic monitors, you can select the optimum monitor which is suited for the information volume of the medical image you need to display.
