The GX550 displays mammography exposures and images of fine structures with the highest resolution and in detail. 5 megapixels and enormous brightness guarantee optimal rendering for long-term luminosity with corresponding contrast.
Thanks to the high 5 Megapixels (grayscale) resolution, a strong contrast ratio of 1500:1 and stable brightness of up to 2000 cd/m2, the monitor offers excellent image quality. Even the differences between the finest details are shown – regardless of your viewing angle. This is a great advantage if multiple physicians are looking at the screen.
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 side of the monitor creates a fresh, clean look.
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 is already included with the RadiForce GX, RX, and MX/MS models.
The gray tone rendering is controlled by an internal 14 bit look-up table (LUT), enabling a pallet of 16,369 tones of gray. This makes calibration (e.g. DICOM characteristic curve) and control of the luminance distribution possible without losses. Up to 1,024 tones of gray can be displayed simultaneously with a suitable DisplayPort signal.

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. Gray tones of radiological and other medical images are correctly rendered over the entire display. This is vital for diagnostics.
Balanced image quality thanks to an integrated front sensor
The precise calibration of white point and tone value characteristic curve is provided by an integrated front sensor (IFS). 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.
Secure image quality thanks to AAPM/Euref/DIN compliance
The display properties, in particular brightness and contrast, are suited to the creation of image rendering systems compliant with DIN 6868-157. The DICOM GSDF characteristic is already precisely configured in the factory. This means that grayscales are consistent, which is vital for diagnostics.
The monitor meets the strictest medical, safety, and EMC emission standards. EIZO’s QC software RadiCS enables you to perform brightness, grayscale and uniformity checks that comply with AAPM TG18, DIN 6868-157, and other QC standards.
The RadiForce GX550 is the ideal solution for visualizing the finest details on breast images. The very high contrast of the monitor shows even the smallest structures. The US administration for Food and Drugs granted its FDA 510(k) validation for breast tomosynthesis and mammography.
High-contrast to the slightest detail
The high contrast ratio means that images are mapped to a high level of detail. Grayscales and black values are highly differentiated. The result: extremely sharp rendering of grayscale images. You can even identify the finest structures.
Clear rendering of even the finest details
In digital mammography, for example, even the finest details have to be rendered for diagnostics. A high resolution contains vital details and prevents reduced image quality with mosaic effects, as commonly arise when using lower resolutions.
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.
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.
Eye-friendly Comfort Light
EIZO offers a brand-new, easy-to-operate comfort light for radiologists who work in dark diagnosis rooms. The soft illuminance in the background of the screen reduces the strain on the eyes that frequently occurs due to constant light-dark changes between bright screens and objects in a dark environment.
Presence sensor: Save electricity when you are not in front of the monitor
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 base allows the monitor to be tilted and turned, as well as operated in landscape or portrait form. The seamless height adjustment starts from the very bottom on the desk. This guarantees optimal ergonomics, regardless of whether you are standing or sitting in front of the screen. Despite its maximum movement possibilities, the FlexStand base always remains completely stable.
One monitor, many ports
It doesn't get easier than this: You can connect most of your devices, such as PC, laptop or cameras directly to the monitor because the monitor has a number of different ports. That makes your daily work easier.
Multi-monitor solutions without problems
Thanks to the signal input and output, you can link several RadiForce monitors through their DisplayPort interface. This means that you can realize multi-monitor solutions with the greatest of ease – without laborious 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.
For precise diagnoses: EIZO MED-XN91 graphics card
The EIZO MED-XN91 graphics card supports the properties, functions, and settings of the RadiForce GX550 optimally. It enables precise diagnostics and can control several monitors simultaneously. EIZO offers technical support and a warranty service for all graphics cards. Therefore, we recommend using EIZO graphics cards.
EIZO grants a five-year warranty. This is possible thanks to the highly developed production process based on a simple principle of success: sophisticated and innovative monitor technology, made from high-end materials.
