3considerationsYou can have say in what your reading room looks like! Every radiologist has sat at their imaging desk and thought how their life could be better if they just made a few changes to their room. Many radiologists come to us because they want to improve their room and their health. Some common issues we hear about room design:

  • "I am facing the wrong direction and cannot see people standing over my shoulder."
  • "Some light is creeping in through the blinds making it hard to read my screens."
  • "I do not have control over the climate in my room, I'm freeze or sweating all shift long."
  • "I cannot dim the lights; they are either 'off' or 'on'."
  • "My own voice bounces off the wall, making my dictation difficult."

LaminateSelectionsLight Reflectance
Have you ever wondered why Radiologists work in dark rooms? Studies have shown that the ability to interpret diagnostic images correctly on medical imaging monitors begins to decline as the ambient light conditions go from dark to light. Another common problem is light reflectance which can cause glare on the imaging monitors, impacting the clarity of the images. Too much glare is a frequent complaint among workstation users. Glare can be disabling, reducing the contrast of images and interfering with the ability to read the images correctly. Glare can be caused by reflections from interior light sources, light from windows and even light colored objects within the reading room-- including the color of the furniture.
