The Viewer is capable of displaying studies across multiple monitors. With this feature, you can choose to view studies in up to 4 separate browser windows. The windows can be independently positioned and resized. Closing any of the open windows will close all the windows. The number of monitors can be set in the Viewer Settings.

When more than one study is selected for viewing, each window will have a different study selected and loaded into the viewport.

Multi-Monitor mode is only supported in the Chrome Browser.
