Radiologists’ comfort is integral for peak performance during long working days.

A studyconducted by the MarkeTech Group claims 85% of radiologists use three displays ormore. Alternating between multiple screens can lead to physical discomfort, includingeye fatigue, neck strain and back pain. Reading discomfort is reportedly experiencedby 87% of radiologists. Here's a checklist of what to consider when you want a comfortable read:

#1. A large display form factor allowsfor flexible, more ergonomic viewing ofmultimodality images on one screen

#2. The ability to place a display in theperfect viewing position allows you toview images in a fixed, more relaxedway

#4. A wide viewing angle (at least178°) decreases the need for substantialhead and eye movements

#5. A display that offers highlycalibrated brightness as well as built-infeatures to adjust display brightnessto the ambient light ensures optimalreading conditions
