EIZO Unveils Megapixel Color Monitor

The new 30.9-inch, 12 megapixel color monitor is designed for multi-modality medical applications

The RX1270 is Eizo’s highest resolution monitor at 12-megapixels (horizontal 4,200 x vertical 2,800 pixels)

November 21, 2019 — Eizo Inc. announced the release of the RadiForce RX1270, a 30.9-inch, super-high-resolution 12-megapixel color monitor ideal for multi-modality medical applications.

The monitor was developed in response to the persisting need for radiologists to read and interpret a wide variety of medical image types to better diagnose and assess medical conditions in patients. To achieve this, while keeping the radiologists’ comfort in mind, Eizo’s RadiForce RX1270 12 megapixel monitor harmoniously combines both performance and ease-of-use.

The RX1270 is Eizo’s highest resolution monitor at 12-megapixels (horizontal 4,200 x vertical 2,800 pixels). The resolution is approximately 1.3 times larger compared to Eizo’s former highest 8-megapixel (horizontal 4,096 x vertical 2,160 pixels) monitor. This allows an even wider range of medical images to be viewed at once, including high volume images displayed in full, for increased reading efficiency. Consistent with Eizo’s line of multi-modality monitors, the RX1270 automatically distinguishes between monochrome and color, ensuring faithfully reproduced images for any modality.

The stark contrast of the low-light in reading rooms and a bright screen are often a cause of eye fatigue. To combat this, the RX1270 features a built-in comfort light that gently illuminates the wall behind the monitor without interfering with the visibility of the image. An adjustable spotlight is also attached to make reading documents easier.

To facilitate more efficient diagnostic image viewing, Eizo’s unique Work-and-Flow functions are also included with the RX1270. The Point-and-Focus function allows users to highlight specific areas of the screen for deeper interpretation. The Hide-and-Seek function allows a secondary input to be displayed in the corner of the screen for quick referencing without needing an additional monitor. The Switch-and-Go function allows two PCs to be controlled with a single mouse and keyboard via a simple mouseover movement.

Eizo will be demonstrating the RadiForce RX1270 at Booth 6720 in North Hall B at the 105th Scientific Assembly and Annual Meeting of The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2019 from December 1 - 5 at McCormick Place, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Availability

The RadiForce RX1270 will begin shipping from March 2020.

 The first of three clinical scenarios presented to the panel with final recommendations. Mild features refer to absence of significant pulmonary dysfunction or damage. Pre-test probability is based upon background prevalence of disease and may be further modified by individual’s exposure risk. The absence of resource constraints corresponds to sufficient availability of personnel, personal protective equipment, COVID-19 testing, hospital beds, and/or ventilators with the need to rapidly triage patients. Contextual detail and considerations for imaging with CXR (chest radiography) versus CT (computed tomography) are presented in the text. (Pos=positive, Neg=negative, Mod=moderate). [Although not covered by this scenario and not shown in the figure, in the presence of significant resources constraints, there is no role for imaging of patients with mild features of COVID-19.] Image courtesy of the journal Radiology

In this example of two Amplazer transcatheter septal occluder devices in the heart, the operator demonstrating the product was able to push the lighting source behind the devices into the other chamber of the heart. This illuminated a hole that was still present that the occluders did not seal.

Typical CT imaging features for COVID-19. Unenhanced, thin-section axial images of the lungs in a 52-year-old man with a positive RT-PCR (A-D) show bilateral, multifocal rounded (asterisks) and peripheral GGO (arrows) with superimposed interlobular septal thickening and visible intralobular lines (“crazy-paving”). Routine screening CT for diagnosis or exclusion of COVID-19 is currently not recommended by most professional organizations or the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
