EIZO Limited today announced the release of the RadiForce MX315W, an 8 megapixel, 31.1-inch monitor with a slim, lightweight design in EIZO’s line of clinical review monitors.
The RadiForce MX315W is the first 8 megapixel monitor in the RadiForce MX Series. With a resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels over the 31.1-inch screen, a large amount of information can be viewed at once. This allows the monitor to be used in cooperation with various systems such as electronic health record systems, and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS), so that multiple applications and windows can be displayed at once on the same monitor. By utilising the MX315W’s increased viewing space and freedom of layout, it is possible to display various inspection images side by side, such as CT and MRI images in tiled format. This will allow for the comparison of old and current scans, ultimately improving efficiency.
The MX315W also offers the highest brightness in the RadiForce MX Series at 450 cd/m2. EIZO guarantees 3 years or 10,000 hours of use at the recommended 270 cd/m2 brightness level, ensuring optimal brightness stability over a long period of use. A built-in brightness-sensor ensures the brightness of the monitor will stay consistent over time. Additionally, the monitor supports DICOM Part 14* standard calibration.
The monitor has a new slim design to minimise clutter at the workspace. It is only 225 mm deep and 11.7 kg in weight, meaning that less space is used and installation is a breeze. Furthermore, the monitor has a built-in power supply so the workspace is free of bulky power supply bricks.
EIZO will be demonstrating the RadiForce MX315W at the European Society of Radiology 2017 (ECR 2017) from March 2 – 5 in Vienna, Austria.

The RadiForce MX315W will begin shipping in June, 2017, please contact us for more details.

University Hospital of Wales is a major 1000-bed hospital in the Heath district of Cardiff, Wales. UHW is a teaching hospital of Cardiff University School of Medicine. Construction started in 1963 with the official opening in 1971. It was Europe’s first fully integrated hospital and medical school at a cost of £22 million. The hospital is the third largest University Hospital in the UK and the largest hospital in Wales.
The brief was to replace an old RDP all-in-one unit which was no longer supported and had reached its end of life. The required units had to be used in a variety of surgical specialities to display a range of medical images during surgery and needed to have an integrated PC for input of patient data by the theatre team. Housing had to be sealed, easy to clean and to be able to be mounted on the existing mounts on the theatre walls. The systems were to be purchased alongside a hardware refresh with University Hospital Wales’ PACS provider, AGFA.
EIZO designed and offered a dual 21inch all in one CuratOR solution containing a pair of EIZO RadiForce MX215 displays with an integrated PC specially designed lightweight housing to enable easy mounting on existing displays. The MX215 was chosen as a monitor ideal for viewing MRI and CT medical images in clinical review environments. The units also had included integrated fully sealed keyboard, mouse and dual USB ports which replicated the previous setup and provided a familiar user friendly system.
The units were also designed so if any parts fail during their lifetime they can be replaced on a component basis and replacement components can be exchanged without removing the units from the wall, unlike the sites previous model.
“The EIZO units are robust having been specifically designed for the theatre environment and provide excellent image quality. The product design facilitates quick access for repair should it be required.
We have been very pleased with both the units themselves and the excellent service provided by the team at EIZO during the project.”
Tom Henderson – PACS Manager, University Hospital of Wales.
Marinequip AS is a Norwegian supplier and manufacturer of ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicle) and lighting and monitoring systems for above and below water. The system integrator’s products are specially designed to meet the needs of aquaculture, wellboat fishing, and the process industry.
Marinequip relies entirely on EIZO for its marine-certified monitor solutions of up to 46 inches for use on ship bridges. This is because the Japanese monitor manufacturer offers a whole range of products (the FDS1904W, FDU2603W, and DV4624 models) with the corresponding certificates (IEC 61174, IEC 62288, and IEC 62388) and also fulfils all of the Norwegian company’s expectations for a reliable partner.
When asked why he decided on EIZO, Trond Johansen, Sales Manager at Marinequip, responded: “EIZO is a well-known brand that represents excellent quality, proven service, and the best possible technical support.”
Marinequip integrated both 26- and 46-inch EIZO models into its matrix solution for a customer from the fishing and aquaculture industry. Six of the monitors assembled on the bridge for this solution are used for navigation, ECDIS, radar, ship PC, automation, and CCTV system applications. An additional monitor is also used in the engine control room for CCTV applications.
Trond Johansen sees many advantages to cooperating with EIZO: “I particularly appreciate EIZO’s very strong support and reliable consulting. I know that I’ll always get an answer and sufficient information on the offer and project status.”
