Monitors Inc. Sony High-Resolution Diagnostic Displays Mammography Systems

June 6, 2013 — The newest diagnostic medical imaging monitors for radiology — Sony’s LMD-DM series — are now available from Monitors Inc. Covering every modality including computed radiography/digital/radiography (CR/DR), computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), picture archive and communications system (PACS), US NM and full-field digital mammography (FFDM) studies, the flat panel displays are 510(k) cleared for diagnostic use and come with a five-year “Hot Swap” warranty.

The Sony LMD-DM series of high-luminance, high-contrast medical displays offers well-defined images and the added value of “48-hour Hot Swap” support for five years. This allows customers to minimize down time in their busy imaging centers with quick, easy service.

“These monitors deliver very real and specific benefits to radiology professionals,” said Lida Trupp, marketing manager, Sony Electronics Inc. “Our relationship with Monitors Inc. will allow these monitors to reach an even broader audience.”

The new line of radiology monitors includes the following:

  • 5 MP Diagnostic Display for Full-Field Digital Mammography
  • 3 MP Color Display
  • 3 MP Grayscale Display
  • 2 MP Color Display
  • 2 MP Grayscale Display


“Sony’s reputation for innovation and high-quality display technology is second to none, and we anticipate high demand from our customers who are seeking only the best for their clinical practice," said Kevin Sundquist, Monitors Inc. “Sony continues to push display development, as evident by its release of the PVM-2551MD color OLED for surgery, which is 501k cleared.  With this leadership in display technology, we’re confident that Sony will provide the radiology market with new innovations for the long term.”

To maximize performance, the Sony displays will come with the video card designed specifically for medical imaging, the nVidia Quadro 2000. Optionally, complete Dell or HP workstations can be configured to specific needs of the customer. From simple clinical review stations to top of the line mammography workstations, hundreds of different configurations are possible with the new Sony monitors.
