National Display gives diagnostic, surgical views in one
National Display Systems demonstrated at RSNA 2006 last week its Multi-Mode technology which provides the ability to display images via multiple video inputs simultaneously on one monitor screen. Essentially, this provides physicians a way of looking at two totally different types of medical images on the monitor, and also provides tools to manipulate the size and shape of the images and to provide other information. As an example, the company showed booth visitors images from an endoscope and an ultrasound to show how the technology is able to present the “combining of a live surgical images with a diagnostic ones,” said Craig Lingel, director, North American Sales.
Also at the show, the company demonstrated its Radiance 55 (55 inch diagonal), a high definition monitor approved for medical applications.
In addition, the company demonstrated its PrimeVue high-brightness 2, 3, and 4 MP color displays, dual link support on 3 MP and 5 MP AXIS monochrome displays, and 3 MP or 4 MP PrimeVue.

The AXIS Series III and V radiology displays were also highlighted, which utilize the same 3 x 8-bit data set as the PrimeVue and with any graphic card supporting dual-link panel technology.
