Original Press Release:

New 42" and 50" High-Definition (HDTV) Plasma Displays Flourish in Endoscopy, Radiology, Neurology, Microscopy, and Operating Room Applications

Carlsbad, CA May 16, 2005: Scientific Vision Systems announced the availability of the latest HDTV compatible Plasma Screen Displays, ideal for the most advanced medical applications. The new displays provide high-definition images for medical professionals in many fields including Endoscopy, Radiology, Neurology, Microscopy, and Surgery.

The new plasma displays save considerable space and can be wall-or ceiling-mounted; the displays are only 3.5 inches thick and are available in either 42-inch or 50-inch diagonal screens. Plasma displays feature higher resolution and contrast ratios than either CRT or LCD display technologies.

Plasma displays are ideal for surgeons since they take up so little space in the already cramped operating room and deliver large-screen ultra-sharp imaging. The new technology has found ready acceptance in endoscopy, radiology, neurology, microscopy, and, of course, the operating room. Radiology and medical teaching professionals find the new monitors valuable for consultations and precise visual presentations. The displays meet the NTSC standards and are HDTV and PC-compatible. They are also forward compatible as new video formats emerge.

According to Dick Wheeler, President of Scientific Vision Systems, "The field of plasma technology is moving very quickly. We currently offer 42" and 50" displays, but dimensions and feature sets change with every new model introduction. Although endoscopy is one of the biggest applications, neurology, microscopy, radiology, and surgery are other specialties with a large demand for plasma displays. As a crucial link in the medical equipment supply chain, our goal is to constantly offer the best quality plasma screen technology with the latest feature sets."
