The Hybrid Gamma PXL function automatically distinguishes between monochrome and color images pixel by pixel, creating a hybrid display where each pixel has optimum grayscale. As a result, monochrome images such as CT, MRI and X-ray are displayed in the ideal grayscale that corresponds to DICOM Part 14, while color images such as 3D rendering, nuclear medicine, ultrasound and endoscopy are faithfully reproduced corresponding to Gamma 2.2. This helps improve efficiency of viewing both monochrome and color images by displaying them together on the one screen.
The Kumamoto Chuo Hospital, Japan, have conducted a visual assessment of the Hybrid Gamma PXL function included on the RadiForce monitor. An improvement of approximately 37% was noted when comparing the use of a color monitor with Hybrid Gamma PXL to one without it. In addition, Hybrid Gamma PXL was found to operate equally as well as monochrome monitors with GSDF when displaying monochrome images.
A medical monitor needs to be capable of high brightness in order to meet performance standards. However, in order to achieve high brightness in an LCD panel, the pixel aperture ratio has to be increased. This causes a typically unavoidable decline in sharpness. With EIZO's unique Sharpness Recovery technology, the decrease in sharpness (MTF) is restored. This allows you to display an image safely on the monitor that is true to the original source data, even at high brightness levels.
MTF measures numerically how faithfully the panel transfers detail from the original image data for viewing. When Sharpness Recovery is turned on, in the case of a 2 pixel line pair (spatial frequency of 0.926 cycles/mm) the MTF increases by over 50%.
EIZO carefully measures and sets the grayscale at the factory to ensure each monitor is compliant with DICOM Part 14. Furthermore, at startup or upon wakeup, the EIZO patented drift correction function quickly stabilizes the brightness level and compensates the brightness fluctuations caused by the ambient temperature and the passage of time, allowing medical images to be faithfully reproduced with stable brightness and grayscale.
EIZO's unique Work-and-Flow technology alleviates the complexity of the imaging workflow with functions developed with the radiologist in mind. Users can take advantage of Work-and-Flow functions with the RadiForce monitor and bundled RadiCS LE software.
After installing the included RadiCS LE quality control software, you can link the Image Rotation Plus function with the monitor's built-in gravity sensor. This enables the screen to automatically switch to either portrait or landscape mode based on the orientation of the monitor.

With the RadiCS LE software (included) and Integrated Front Sensor (IFS) built into the front bezel, you can easily calibrate to DICOM Part 14 without having to mount, run, and remove an external sensor.
Simple calibration using the monitor backlight sensor is also supported.
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.
EIZO is committed carrying out responsible manufacturing practices to maintain high product quality, while keeping the environment in mind. RX270 is made of approximately 16% recycled plastic. This mitigates on the amount of plastic waste going into the environment, conserves resources, and promotes reuse of materials for preserving the natural ecosystems
EIZO monitors are moving away from using plastic and styrofoam in the packaging to reduce environmental impact. The RX270 is safely packed using molded pulp, which is made from recycled cardboard and newspaper, and cables are wrapped in environmentally friendly pulp sheet instead of plastic bags.
As part of its sustainability initiatives, EIZO is contributing towards the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Dr. László Tabár recently used EIZO’s multi-modality monitors for the first time as the key teaching tool at his International Breast Seminar Series. Dr. Tabár’s Advanced Course on Multi-Modality Detection and Diagnosis of Breast Diseases with Emphasis on Breast MRI, held in Australia during November 2014, was the setting for his first EIZO RadiForce multi-modality experienc
The latest in breast cancer examinations, 3D breast tomosynthesis, is a procedure being carried out by Utsunomiya Central Clinic, where three EIZO RadiForce RX840-MG monitors are being used. Dr. Sato, Radiologist on Utsunomiya Central Clinic's administration board, assesses the usability of the monitors for breast cancer examination.
