Radiology Workstation Wallpaper

Radiology reporting rooms should have low ambient light levels and minimal sources of peripheral glare to improve contrast perception on a diagnostic image. A simple trick to both improve viewing conditions and add some natural green scenery is to install one of these images as the Windows wallpaper on your computer desktop. They may look dark but will be comfortably visible and help reduce glare from displays in a radiology reporting area.
