3MP Display FDA-Cleared for Digital Mammography

November 24, 2010 — A 3MP-based display has been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for digital mammography.

Totoku/USEI announced FDA clearance of its MS31i2, a 3-megapixel–based LCD, for mammography applications. Previously, only 5-megapixel displays have been FDA cleared for primary viewing of mammography images.

Totoku’s ISD (independent sub-pixel drive) technology has effectively increased the resolution of the MS31i2 by a factor of three, thereby providing new cost-effective options to radiology departments, the company says. By incorporating the ISD technology, the MS31i2 attains resolution values equivalent to a 9-megapixel display by independently driving each sub-pixel. The MS31i2 is suitable for primary reads in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), computed radiography (CR), digital radiography (DR) and now mammography, which contributes to an efficient multi-modality reading room.
