The new color displays are ideal for use in a distributed PACS environment for areas ranging from radiology and cardiology, to dermatology and applications in the operating room (OR). The new grayscale displays in the Dome EX line (Dome E2, E3 and E5) have been designed for the most demanding diagnostic applications including CT, magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasound, CR, digital radiography (DR), NM, digitized film and mammography.

Planar's Dome EX line of DICOM-calibrated diagnostic imaging displays features Planar's advanced Dome DA4 hardware architecture, enabling the use of select, commercially available graphics controllers for open standards support. Open standards, such as OpenGL and DirectX, provide the capability to perform texture mapping, volumetric rendering and other powerful visualization functions often used in interactive 2-D and 3-D medical viewing applications.

Planar Systems, Inc. (PLNR) focuses on flat panel display systems.
