Diagnostic monitor - Intelligent, confident, unique!
Continuous further development allows TOTOKU to ensure even greater certainty in primary diagnostics along with technological progress in the medical imaging market. As well as equipping the diagnostic monitors with innovative technical features, TOTOKU also provides a diagnostic guarantee for up to five years. This ensures maximum investment security for diagnostic monitors with resolutions of 2, 3 and 5 megapixels.
TOTOKU is a leading global manufacturer of medical monitors. TOTOKU has been producing reliable and innovative displays and workstations since 1972.
TOTOKU diagnostic monitors are used in a variety of applications. These include mammography, CT, MRT, PET and angiography.
All TOTOKU i2 models have a reliable stabilisation system: Three sensors continuously monitor all important parameters and ensure that image reproduction is always stable.
Not only is the temperature measured inside the display; the current brightness of the display is also measured. The brightness in the room is also monitored. The measurements are monitored and recorded using the PM-Medivisor. This software is optionally available.
ISD (Independent Sub-pixel Drive) technology allows the sub-pixels of greyscale displays to be controlled independently of each other. This is a revolution for diagnostic monitors as it allows the resolution of a display to be tripled. For example, ISD turns a 2 MP display into a 6 MP display. ISD provides substantial cost savings while improving quality. ISD is optionally available for most greyscale monitors and can also be activated later.
The latest generation of TOTOKU monitors is equipped with an LED backlight. The LED backlight ensures a better and more consistent illumination of the entire display in the CCL 258i2, CCL 358i2, CCL 650i2 and MS55i2 models. The power consumption of these monitors is also reduced by around 20% compared to models with conventional lighting.
The Backlight-Lifetime-Extender is additional software that extends the lifetime of the background light. When the display is not in use, the backlight switches to a particularly resource-conserving operating mode. In contrast to normal screensavers, the display always remains ready for use.
New models featuring an LED backlight reduce power consumption by over 20% while providing better illumination.
The new CCL 650i2, CCL 258i2 and CCL 358i2 colour monitors achieve a brightness of up to 950 cd/m². The devices are precalibrated at the factory to 410 and 300 cd/m². Thanks to the high level of brightness, these models can be used for Class A diagnostics.
A patented technology makes it possible for the first time to display up to 2048 greyscales (= 11 bits) simultaneously with TOTOKU monitors. Provided that your viewing software (PACS) supports this technology, you can save the cost of purchasing expensive graphic cards without compromising on quality.
The uniformity equalizer ensures excellent brightness distribution over the entire display surface and even eliminates minimal fluctuations in luminance. In the case of colour monitors, the uniformity equalizer also provides an even distribution of colours over the entire screen. Of course, each display is measured and calibrated at the factory prior to delivery.
A major benefit of TOTOKU monitors is that the user can repeat this calibration themselves as often as required using the optional CAL012 calibration set. This guarantees a consistent brightness distribution, even after years of use.
Software and hardware work hand in hand in TOTOKU monitors. The Medivisor software automatically detects the available sensors, finding both integrated and optional sensors.
The many years of experience that Totoku has in producing monitors for the medical industry is also reflected in the company’s Medivisor NX calibration software. The software automatically detects the monitor type and available sensors. No program wizard or manual input is required to perfectly calibrate a monitor. All it takes is two clicks to perform the calibration and optimally adjust the monitor.
An icon in the user interface info area indicates the current status of the monitor in real time. This provides greater diagnostic certainty and consistent image quality without the user having to think about maintenance intervals. All values measured during the calibration are represented graphically and archived.
Conventional monitors usually work with 8 bits per colour channel and can therefore only display 256 greyscales. Totoku, on the other hand, uses special greyscale displays that can represent up to 3826 different greyscales (= 11.9 bits).
A look-up table (LUT) is used to adapt this incredible range of shades to human sight. This takes place in accordance with the DICOM standards. The result: An excellent, balanced and homogenous greyscale gradient.
TOTOKU colour monitors can display even the finest details in sharp clarity with a resolution of up to 6 MP.
The German X-Ray Regulation (Röntgenverordnung) requires the users of diagnostic monitors to carry out regular acceptance and constancy tests in accordance with DIN V 6868-57. For this purpose, the QA Medivisor works hand in hand with the Medivisor NX: The calibration reports are obtained from here and the required test reports are created in PDF format.
The optional PM Medivisor goes one step further: All Totoku i2 series monitors located on the network are calibrated and verified remotely and automatically. This is carried out completely autonomously and is fully time-controlled. It is no longer necessary to perform the calibration on site. Measures that are carried out include:
An invisible protective filter protects the display from scratches and can be replaced at any time.
The pivot function of a monitor allows you to rotate the screen by 90° in order to switch from portrait mode to landscape format. This rotation requires that the respective screen format on the computer is converted (for example, from 1920 x 1200 to 1200 x 1920). Many monitors offer a software solution for this. However, the solution usually requires a lot of computing power and slows down the display of images.
In the hardware pivot function featured in Totoku monitors, the display of images is equally fast in both modes and responds to changes of mode at lightning speed.
Due to production-related reasons, it is not possible to completely avoid variations in the colour temperature of different greyscale monitors. As two monitors are often used side by side in medical imaging, it is particularly important that screens have identical reproduction values.
TOTOKU offers to synchronise monitor pairs before they are delivered. This results in perfect and symmetrical colour reproduction on both monitors.
With high luminance and high contrast, and an integrated color calibration function, our CCL 358i2 delivers highly accurate color reproduction faithful to the DICOM GSDF.
The TOTOKU CCL 258i2 includes a luminance compensation feature for edge to edge consistency, is fully configurable for multi-display applications, and comes standard with hardware-based pivot functionality for fast image drawing in portrait orientation.
With high luminance and high contrast, and an integrated color calibration function, our CCL214 delivers highly accurate color reproduction faithful to the DICOM GSDF.
Digital mammography viewing demands an extraordinarily high level of precision from your LCD display. Totoku's MS35i2 redefines new standards of care by over-delivering resolution and clarity for improved accuracy in breast cancer screening.
We would be glad to present you the TOTOKU diagnostic monitor on location. Further you have the opportunity to run the devices in your daily clinic routine during a test phase.
