Diagnostic Imaging Releases Recommendations For Greater Reading Room Comfort
Date:9/10/2013

NORWALK, Conn., Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UBM Medica US announces that Diagnostic Imaging, a leading online publication for news and commentary of the medical imaging market, has published recommendations for optimizing the comfort of radiology reading rooms.

The reading room – the darkened environment where radiologists spend much of their time reviewing studies – is often cited by radiologists as a frequent source of chronic pain. Suggestions culled from radiologists nationwide offer guidance for designing, organizing, and outfitting reading rooms with the most ergonomically-designed technology available. Providers interviewed also offered advice about behaviors radiologists can change that could decrease work-related discomfort.

Here are a few highlights:

  • Set monitors to the ideal viewing distance of 18 inches-to-24-inches away.
  • Invest in floodlights, track lighting, or other lighting sources to create ambient light in the reading room.
  • Forego the telephone handset that is often cradled between the chin and shoulder in favor of a hands-free headset.
