CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) Medical Monitor- Service and RepairPosted by VeeArc in Repair LCD/CRT Monitor
The Cathode-Ray Tube (CRT) is the technology that was used in most televisions, computer display screens, as well as high resolution Medical Monitors. A CRT works by moving an electron beam back and forth across the back of the screen. Each time the beam makes a pass across the screen, it lights up phosphor dots on the inside of the glass tube, thereby illuminating the active portions of the screen. By drawing many such lines from the top to the bottom of the screen, it creates an entire screen full of images.
The CRT Medical Monitor is still a widely used display by radiologists all over the world. Siemens Healthcare used this technology under the name Simomed HM 54 cm and Simomed HM 44 cm. The CRT offers the high resolution that is required by all radiologists in order for them to make an accurate diagnosis. The CRT Medical Monitor is durable and has the average life expectancy of 20,000 hours. Some CRTs can last up to 30,000-50,000 hours. When your CRT starts to fail and the resolution is poor, we at VeeArc Monitor & Display Services can extend the life of your CRT and ensure the high quality performance required by Imaging Professionals. If you have a maintenance contract with Siemens Heathcare, you are all covered but if not, contact us directly to ensure you don’t risk your patients health by a poor performing monitor or non-authorized service.
