Medicanvas CCFL lighted radiology viewboxes!

The first truly NEW viewbox in the last 30 years!!

These new Medicanvas viewboxes utilize CCFL or COLD CATHODE FLUORESCENT LAMPS! They are a small type of fluorescent lamp used for backlighting TFT-LCD displays, which provides excellent illumination of about 2,000 to 2,200 cd/m2 at low power levels, while producing only a very moderate amount of heat. The lamps last for about 20,000 hours (about 10 years of normal usage) as compared to 3,000 hours for normal fluorescent lamps. CCFL provides the most efficient luminance in backlighting technology due to it's 8,600-kelvin color temperature. Normal fluorescent lamps typically run around 5,000-kelvin. This makes for more of a "bluish" cast light that makes reading black & white radiology films much easier to the eye.

The BEST uniformity of light in any viewbox!

CCFL lamps were designed for backlighting of TFT LCD displays used in laptop and desktop LCD computer displays. In those applications, uniformity is a MUST! Used in viewboxes, these units produce the most even and uniform light output ever seen in a viewbox. Furthermore, the power supply in these units is a high-frequency switcher type. In a normal viewbox the lamps "flicker" at the powerline frequency, typically 60Hz (50Hz in some countries). This adds to the eyestrain. But the switcher supplied in these units, fires 40,000Hz - so fast the human eye can not perceive any flicker. This reduces eyestrain!




Very thin!

Because the CCFL lamps are so tiny, the Medicanvas viewers are only 1" (2.5cm) thick! Compare that to the 3" (8.255cm) of most conventional viewboxes. This small size makes these units Ideal for portable uses such as mobile vans and carry along (with handle) applications. And as you might guess, this makes these units the lightest viewboxes available. Finally, their small size makes it easy to "dress up" or hide in custom cabinets. This allows a Doctor's office to have a more professional interior design appeal.
