Overview of EIZO RadiCS application classes and recommendation of EIZO image rendering devices by body regions and methods from DIN 6868-157.

More information about RadiCS application classes and monitors

For a long time now, radiologists have no longer had to be physically on site in the hospital to make their diagnosis. However, teleradiological diagnosis workplaces are subject to the same high legal requirements as hospitals are. EIZO RadiForce monitors offer the perfect conditions for teleradiological diagnosis.

Frequently asked questions
What tools does EIZO provide for quality assurance for image display devices in medical applications?

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.

For what regions of the body and what methods or purpose is a RadiForce screen suitable in accordance with DIN 6868-157?

Depending on the body region / methods, different EIZO RadiForce screens are suitable for image display systems in accordance with DIN 6868-157.
