The monochrome RadiForce G33 is designed for PACS, chest radiography, CT, MRI, and angiography. It produces a palette of 8161 gray-scale tones - 4096, or 12 bits, of them can be displayed simultaneously.

The unit incorporates Eizo's aperture modulation technology, which intensifies the differences between black and white tones by enabling a different area ratio for each subpixel. The G33 has a built-in sensor that allows precise remote calibration. Its Digital Uniformity Equalizer unifies the luminance of the backlight.

The color and monochrome RadiForce R31 for CT, MRI, PET, and 3D rendering has a 10-bit color input compatibility that can display up to a trillion colors simultaneously. The R31's image rotation technology permits users to switch easily from landscape to portrait mode. It also eliminates the need for special software for gray-scale rendering without banding or color seepage.
