Reference Center Mammography North - 12 Megapixel Solution for an Optimized Diagnostic Workstation

Compared to the previous dual-screen 5 megapixel monitor EIZO set-up, the single-screen 12 megapixel solution with the RadiForce RX1270 takes up less space, therefore offering a higher resolution for efficient reporting.


The Initial Situation

For several years, the Reference Center Mammography North has been using EIZO RadiForce monitors for documentation and evaluation, technical quality assurance, reporting, and training doctors in mammography screening.

“We only use EIZO monitors. Previously, we have used monitors from other manufacturers, but have gradually replaced them with EIZO”, reports Christian Grünke, Head of IT System Administration at the Reference Center Mammography North.

The EIZO Solution

Until now, Reference Center Mammography North used two EIZO RadiForce GX550 5 megapixel monitors on each diagnostic workstation. On the recommendation of SQ-Labs GmbH, the long-standing supplier of Reference Center Mammography North for medical monitors, these are gradually being replaced by RadiForce RX1270.

Christian Grünke explains, "To optimize the diagnostic workstations, we are now replacing the GX550 models with the RX1270. Compared to the dual-screen, the large single-screen solution with its 12 megapixels offers a significantly higher resolution for even more efficient reporting. In addition, you gain more space on the desk. The comfort light built into the back of the RX1270 is also practical."

The monitor helps to create a consistent lighting environment when the comfort light is used as the only light source at the diagnostic station. This is also the reason why all other RadiForce diagnostic monitors (monochrome and color) have been equipped with the RadiLight comfort light (available as an optional extra). In addition, EIZO FlexScan models EV2480, EV2451, and EV2450 can be found as RIS monitors on the diagnostic workstations.

“The reliability of EIZO products, even after long periods of use, cannot be denied. And with the calibration sensors built into the monitors, quality assurance is optimally guaranteed. We use EIZO's RadiCS software for this and are very satisfied with it. In addition, we appreciate the good service from EIZO when we have questions about the products.”
