Philips is releasing its Philips Clinical Review Display, a medical grade monitor suitable for diagnostic purposes. Available with a 24″ screen and an IPS panel, or 27″ with an AMVA panel, the display can produce DICOM part 14 compatible grayscale images. Because DICOM settings are often different from those used for non-diagnostic tasks, the monitor features a Clinical D-image function that allows for quick switching into and out of DICOM mode.
The white colored monitor is coated with an antimicrobial substance and the screen sports a 178° viewing angle both vertically and horizontally.
From the announcement:
Clinics and hospitals put safety as their utmost concern. The Philips Clinical Review Display takes this to heart by employing special medical grade power supplies, complying with the EN/IEC 60601-1 standard that ensures basic safety and essential performance, and the EN/IEC 60601-2 collateral standard for medical grade electromagnetic compatibility. Meeting both global standards means the new display can be utilized in various countries.
Drug-resistant germs are a growing menace for medical professionals worldwide. The new Philips display tackles the challenge by using JIS Z2801 compliant anti-microbial additive in its housing material. It is proven to inhibit growth of most common microorganisms like E. coli and pneumonia. Now there is one less thing to worry about in the fight against germs. The display also comes with EPEAT GOLD certification, certifying it is good for the environment by using at least 30% post-consumer resin in its casing.
As the Philips Clinical Review Display helps you take care of patients, it also takes care of you. The SmartErgoBase allows it to be adjusted for maximum viewing comfort by swiveling, tilting and rotating the screen. The low bezel-to-table height means it can be lowered to almost desk level — a perfect solution for those who use bifocals, trifocals or progressive lens spectacles.
