NVIDIA reveals the Quadro 2000D, a new professional graphics card designed for the medical imaging sector.
NVIDIA announced today the launch and immediate availability of its new NVIDIA® Quadro® 2000D graphics solution, designed for use in professional medical imaging environments to help improve the accuracy and timeliness of patient diagnosis. This is the latest addition to the company’s portfolio of award-winning Quadro professional graphics solutions, built on the NVIDIA Fermi architecture. The Quadro 2000D provides key diagnostic display capabilities and application performance that hospitals, clinics and other diagnostic imaging environments demand in order to effectively interpret and manage high resolution patient imagery.
The NVIDIA Quadro 2000D features two dual-link digital video interface (DVI) connectors and delivers a high level of grayscale accuracy and definition of images at high resolution (up to 10Mpixels) required for confident diagnosis. The Quadro 2000D supports 10- and 12-bit gray scale for revealing the most subtle tonal abnormalities in diagnostic images, along with industry-standard DICOM monitor calibration to maintain grayscale consistency across monitors.
“We strive to design the best possible diagnostic imaging systems, which for years have included NVIDIA Quadro graphics with our Dome displays,” said Peter M Steven, VP & GM of the Radiology Business Unit at NDS Surgical Imaging. “With the new Quadro 2000D, NVIDIA offers the latest Quadro technology in a design compatible with existing Dome displays, which will allow us to deliver precise 10-bit grayscale and color imaging in a much desired dual DVI configuration.”
An additional key feature of the Quadro 2000D is NVIDIA Mosaic™ Display Technology, which offers users the ability to easily span any application across multiple, high-resolution panels or projectors without sacrificing performance. Up to eight displays can be driven from a single workstation with multiple Quadro 2000D solutions installed. NVIDIA SLI®Multi-OS technology also works in conjunction with the Quadro 2000D for driving simultaneous Windows and/or Linux environments from the same workstation.
Using NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ and 3D Vision Pro stereoscopic 3D solutions, the Quadro 2000D enables immersive 3D perspectives significantly richer than traditional two-dimensional views.
“NVIDIA technology combined with our 3D ultrasound system gives diagnostic imaging professionals the ability to create the most stunning 3D images of the fetus,” said Barbara Del Prince, global segment manager, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Siemens Healthcare. “3D Vision enables us to provide a more immersive, realistic visual experience, and the NVIDIA Quadro 2000D delivers the graphics performance and connectivity we need.”
“Agfa HealthCare IMPAX EE PACS workstations with the Quadro 2000D combine industry leading 3D performance, high fidelity grayscale support, and display compatibility that the medical imaging community demands,” said Dr. Frank Unglauben, head of PACS product management, Agfa HealthCare DACH (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). “Providing this exceptional diagnostic and clinical imaging solution can aid doctors and radiologists in making the most precise diagnoses possible for their patients.”
