BOLDscreen 32 LCD for fMRI

BOLDSCREEN32 350x350

Questions about the BOLDscreen 32?


Designed for 60 and 70cm bores, the premium 32" 1920x1080 widescreen LCD display features up to 16-bit RGB colour control, 1400:1 contrast ratio and 120Hz panel drive.

Our BOLDscreen monitors are the only "MRI Compatible" MR Safe displays with no time lag, integrated sensor for luminance calibration and, of course, no interference with the scanner, even when positioned right at the exit of the bore.

MR Safety

BOLDscreen 32 is categorised as MR safe in accordance with the labelling requirements of ASTM F2503-08 (“an item that poses no known hazards in all MR environments”). See FAQs.


The Voltage Converter Unit mounted at the penetration panel and associated cables are MR conditional (“an item that has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MR environment with specified conditions of use”).


MR UnsafeThe mains Power Supply Unit (located outside of the magnet room) is categorised as MR unsafe, as this would pose a missile hazard if it was placed in a high magnetic field gradient



BOLDscreen 32 has no observed effect on functional and structural MRI scans at 3T or 7T, even with screen located at exit of scanner bore, and no effect on displayed image whilst scanning.
