Planar makes available 4 MP Color Display for medical use
Planar Systems Inc. has received FDA 510(k) clearance for its Dome E4c, the first 4-megapixel color display medically certified for the viewing of diagnostic images, the company said.

This widescreen display is for use in radiology, cardiology, nuclear medicine (NM), PET/CT, dermatology and in the operating room. New features, such as the 16:9 display format, offer more screen space and the ability to show 15 full size 512 x 512 images on one screen.

The Dome E4c supports an open architecture design which allows users to gain access to state-of-the-art graphics standards, such as OpenGL and DirectX, providing the capability of 2-D color imaging, image fusion, high-speed 3-D and volumetric rendering for navigation and visualization functionality. In addition, the open architecture support enables faster display performance and seamless integration of future standard enhancements.
