Medical-grade display technology has evolved significantly and swiftly, and many new applications are available that help to streamline workflow and enhance productivity.
State-of-the-art imaging displays are a must for the healthcare arena, and today have an increasing capacity to offer large, high-resolution displays, color accuracy, calibrated brightness, advanced connectivity, optimized workflow and high contrast, just to name a few. A variety of vendors continue to improve the technology to better display imaging modalities, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray, positron emission tomography (PET), mammography and ultrasound, and to ensure screens remain DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) compliant.
Imaging displays, from consumer to medical grade, have come a long way since the days of bulky screens and low resolutions. Today, flat panel displays in the healthcare arena have increasing capacity to offer improved contrast ratios, truer colors, better energy efficiency, high luminance and more. A variety of vendors continue to improve the technology to better display imaging modalities, including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), X-ray, positron emission tomography (PET), mammography and ultrasound, and to ensure screens remain DICOM (digital imaging and communications in medicine) compliant.
Realizing most radiologists evaluating new flat panel displays may not be savvy on how display screens are constructed or all the features, here is a quick overview. This article includes a brief history of how medical-grade display technology has evolved over the past decade and what to look for on the most current product lines.
At RSNA 2010, Wide Corp. showed its new 30-inch, 10 mega-pixel (MP) liquid crystal display (LCD) with auto-calibration software. It was developed for mammography and viewing images from picture archiving and communications systems (PACS).
