Image quality

Precise, high-contrast, bright and crisp screen

Excellent image quality for the finest details

Thanks to a high resolution of two times 5 Megapixels (greyscale), an excellent contrast ratio of 1700:1 and stable brightness of up to 2500 cd/m2, the monitor offers excellent image quality. Diagnosis in digital mammography depends on the display of the finest details. A high resolution obtains key details and prevents lower image quality with a mosaic effect, which can arise with lower resolutions. The details are presented in a differentiated manner, no matter from which viewing angle the monitor is viewed. This is a great advantage when several doctors are looking at the same screen.

Correct rendering of grey tones

The grey tone rendering is controlled by an internal 14 bit look-up table (LUT), enabling a pallet of 16369 tones of grey. This makes calibration (e.g. DICOM® characteristic curve) and control of the luminance distribution possible without losses. Up to 1024 tones of grey can be displayed simultaneously with a suitable DisplayPort signal.

High-contrast to the slightest detail

The high contrast ratio means that images are mapped to a high level of detail. Greyscales and black values are highly differentiated. The result: extremely sharp rendering of greyscale images. You can even identify the finest structures.

Blur reduction

LCD panels with a high brightness level tend to have more blurry image rendering thanks to over-framing than would be possible in comparison with an acquired exposure. Therefore, EIZO offers blur reduction anchored in monitor hardware. It retrieves details lost in the contours on the screen, meaning that the image is rendered as clearly as possible.

Uniform brightness over the entire screen

The monitor shines thanks to its uniform illumination. This is down to the Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE), which corrects imbalances automatically, pixel by pixel. Grey tones of radiological and other medical images are correctly rendered over the entire display. This is essential for precise image reproduction.

Consistent image quality thanks to integrated luminance sensor

The precise calibration of white point and tone value characteristic curve is provided by an integrated luminance sensor. This measures the brightness and grayscales and calibrates the monitor autonomously according to the DICOM® standard. The sensor works automatically, without restricting the field of vision of the monitor. You can save the costs, time, and effort of maintenance and rely on a consistently balanced image quality.

FDA clearance

The monitor holds the FDA-510(k)- clearance for breast tomosynthesis, mammography and general radiography.

Reliable brightness

EIZO is convinced of the quality of its products. The warranty for the monitors, therefore, also covers the brightness stability.

Constant brightness during operation

A sensor for the backlight permanently determines the luminance of the monitor. The benefit: The defined and calibrated values are rendered exactly just seconds after the monitor is turned on and remain constant during the entire period of use. The sensor is invisibly integrated in the monitor.

Software and ease of use

Features for greater comfort

The Work-and-Flow technology

With the increasing digitisation of modalities, radiologists are confronted with a growing amount of information on their screens. EIZO's unique work-and-flow technology, with new features designed to meet the needs of radiologists, effectively counters the complexity of data. The RadiForce GX560-MD and RadiCS-LE software solution enable you to benefit from the Work-and-Flow functions.

More information about the Work-and-Flow functions

Point-and-Focus: all eyes on the analysis

The Point-and-Focus function allows you to select and focus on relevant image areas quickly using your mouse or keyboard. By adjusting the brightness and greyscale, the interesting parts of an image are highlighted by dimming the surrounding areas.

Switch-and-Go: just one keyboard and mouse for two systems

Switch-and-Go makes it possible to work using just one keyboard and mouse at diagnostic imaging stations that make use of two computers. You can switch between the two systems simply by moving your cursor from one screen to the other. This ensures greater work efficiency and allows you to maintain a clear overview of your workstation.

WaF_Switch-and-go.gif

Consistently secure image quality

The optional EIZO RadiCS software to secure image quality enables extensive maintenance and testing of monitors and includes calibration, acceptance and constancy testing, and the archiving of all areas. If you are working on multiple stations, the use of the RadiNET Pro is recommended. This can be used to centrally control the calibration of all monitors, including data history. This saves you a significant amount of time and ensures consistently high image quality across the entire setup. The basic version RadiCS LE - without acceptance and constancy testing - is already included with the RadiForce monitors.

Improved comfort

Efficiency in diagnostics

A new level of observation, without disruptive factors

The MammoDuo consists of two monitors that are combined next to one another in a specially designed stand.

With a bezel only 7.5 mm in width the distance between the display areas of the two monitors is merely 15 mm. Moreover, the panel frame is only 2.5 mm above the screen, which means it sits nearly flush with the screen. This means viewers’ vision goes undisrupted when looking back and forth between the monitors.

Diagnostics_MammoDuo-Bezel.jpg

Space-saving arrangement

The GX560-MD saves a great deal of space. This solution saves 67 mm horizontally, 36 mm vertically, and 20.5 mm in depth, compared to conventional structures built from individual monitors with this resolution arranged next to one another. In summary, this means a 22 % reduction of the total required surface. This frees up valuable space to make for a roomier working environment.

Easily adjustable

You can conveniently adjust the height, tilt, and rotation of the monitors with the dual stand, without creating gaps between the monitors.

Perfectly designed for diagnostic use

Narrow black frontal bezels make this device ideal for use in dark environments. They make it easy to visually concentrate on the display. Meanwhile, a white bezel at the sides of the monitors creates a fresh, clean look.

Save electricity when you are not in front of the monitor

Presence sensor

Thanks to the presence sensor, you can save electricity and help protect the environment. The sensor registers whether someone is sitting in front of the screen or not. As soon as the person leaves the workstation, the monitor turns off automatically. When the person comes back, it turns back on – fully automatically, without touching the mouse or keyboard. It is always ready for use without a waiting period.

Extended durations of use thanks to automatic shut down

The monitor has an automatic shut down option for the backlight (backlight saver). This extends the duration of use. Similar to a screen saver, the LEDs turn off when the screen is not being used. 

The backlight saver is part of the RadiCS software.

Daisy chain method

Efficient multi-display solution

Thanks to the signal input and output, you can link several RadiForce monitors through their DisplayPort interface. This means that you can realise multi-monitor solutions with the greatest of ease – without labourious and excessive cabling.

Ambient light sensor supports the constancy test

The sensor integrated in the monitor is used to measure the ambient light and can be used for constancy tests. The prevalent illumination can be determined by the ambient light sensor with the optional RadiCS software.

FAQs

EIZO has developed the RadiCS software specifically for quality assurance for image display devices in the RadiForce range. It offers extensive tests and automatic alignment to guarantee constant and consistent image reproduction on all RadiForce LCD monitors, but also supports screens from other manufacturers. The software automatically executes test images and helps to perform measurements and assessments in accordance with the guidelines in a cost-effective and time-effective manner. For example, measurement results are automatically transferred to the documentation and archived and can be centrally managed using the optional RadiNET Pro software. A calendar with a reminder function ensures timely checks are performed. A suitable measurement device is required to measure the luminance, including veiling luminance. Measured values from various luminance meters are automatically read by RadiCS.

Software RadiCS

According to the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU), the quality assurance guidelines are according to the X-ray ordinance (QS-RL): "Quality assurance measures for X-ray devices to examine or treat humans".

DIN V 6868-157. This DIN governs the acceptance test and constancy test for image display systems in radiography in order to ensure the necessary image quality.

Depending on the body region / methods, different EIZO RadiForce screens are suitable for image display systems in accordance with DIN 6868-157. The EIZO RadiCS quality assurance software is divided into classes I to VIII. The following table shows a classification of suitable screens in this regard. 

Note: An acceptance test is necessary for each image display system for an evaluation in accordance with DIN 6868-157.

In accordance with DIN 6868-157, different minimum requirements are placed on image display devices depending on the body region / method. The EIZO RadiCS quality assurance software is divided into classes I to VIII. The following table shows a classification of the classes and minimum requirements in this regard. 

Note: An acceptance test is necessary for each image display system for an evaluation in accordance with DIN 6868-157.

To keep your monitor looking like new at all times and to prolong the service life of your device, we recommend cleaning it regularly. Clean the casing and LCD surface as described below:

IMPORTANT: Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol), scouring agents or other strong solvents as these may damage the casing and the LCD display.

Casing
Remove marks by wiping the casing with a soft cloth, which you have previously moistened with a mild cleaning agent. Never spray wax or cleaning agents directly on to the casing. (The manual contains exact details.)

LCD display
Where necessary, the monitor surface may be cleaned using a soft cloth (for example a cotton cloth or glasses cloth). Stubborn marks can generally be removed by wetting the cloth with a bit of water to increase the cleaning strength.

Homogeneous luminance distribution and good color purity are key to achieving very accurate image rendering. The Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) circuit takes care of this. It automatically corrects non-uniformities in terms of luminance and chrominance for all tone values across the entire image area – pixel by pixel.

The warranty for EIZO RadiForce monitors is 5 years for most models including an on-site replacement service. EIZO recommends an image brightness that is considerably higher than the minimum requirements in accordance with QS RL for monitors used for medical diagnostics. This recommended brightness is guaranteed by EIZO.
The corresponding product data sheets show which guarantee applies to which RadiForce model.

Both the installation wizard in RadiCS 5 and the corresponding functionality in RadiNET Pro enable an upgrade including data migration.

An important prerequisite for this is that the installed RadiCS 4 Version must be Version 4.6.1 or higher. For that reason, you should carry out an update beforehand for older RadiCS 4 installations.

EIZO monitors support DisplayPort Alternate Mode with their USB-C interface. This means they can correctly display image signals from Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports via USB-C connection. The USB-C signal cable supplied by EIZO with the monitor has the optimal suitability.

Alternatively, monitors with a DisplayPort socket can be connected using a suitable cable. The CP200 signal cable (USB-C (TB3/TB4) to DisplayPort) provided by EIZO is the most suitable.

A connection from Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports to the HDMI interface of the monitor can work with suitable active adapters/cables. However, we recommend using the USB-C or DisplayPort interface of the monitor.
