    If you are a professional that need to operate with up to four displays in different modes using only a single video card, the latest Matrox M-series multi-monitor graphics might be just the right choice for you. The five new Matrox graphics are build around a new ASIC that offers native single-chip quad head support, PCI-E x16 performance, 512MB of DDR2 memory and fanless design. Using special dual and quad-monitor cables to connect all monitors the cards can output image to either DVI or VGA sources at maximum resolutions of 2560x1600 (note that this mode can only be achieved on two monitors in DVI mode). Of course, Maxtrox' M-series are also certified to work with both Windows XP and Windows Vista.

    M9120 PCIe x16 $259 USD

    M9120 Plus LP PCIe x16 $329 USD
    M9120 Plus LP PCIe x1 $329 USD

    With ATI FireMV giving these features for ~$200, I find the pricing rather outrageous. A lot of our hospital equipment use Matrox hardware.

    They don't even meet requirements (use PowerPC, old Power Macs). Some are integrated with the machines and come with custom OS'es of some sort.

    Good Shepard Technologies <- Best bet.

    Yes, that's the equipment, everything to do with imaging where more than one display heads are used.

    FireGL's are significantly superior due to dual-link DVI. The Matrox doesnt do this and is limited to 1920x1200 on digital :shadedshu

    CT scans yes, our software loads a whole study and basically stacks the images on top of eachother creating 3D images. Filters allow you to do a lot to the images, besides that you can cut in it and do all kind of fancy things.
    The applications are run on the GPU, CPU doesn't matter much.

    I don't work much with the software myself though, I do system/network administration and production.
     
    DrPepper says thanks.

    Crappy study, nothing much to show. The applications are used for measurements and the likes. Too lazy to install a correct license to enable those features :)
    They're working on a program they call "4D" now, it basically shows different timeframes, ie animates the whole thing. Used for cardiac stuff.

    That's like the 4D of a sonogram (i think this is the English term, but i'm unsure: in Portuguese, it's ecografia), right?

    We have something very similar to that at our imaging. It was installed by Erba (that German company).

    Then we have to send suicide bombers to that company :)

    Never heard of them though. And I do see quite some names pass by.
