November 28, 2016 — LG Electronics USA Business Solutions is introducing clinical and surgical monitors, marking its entry into the growing global medical imaging devices market. The new monitors and an advanced new radiography device are being previewed at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA 2016), Nov. 27-Dec. 1 in Chicago.

The LG 8MP Clinical Review Monitor is a 27-inch IPS monitor driving 3840 x 2160 pixels, specifically designed to increase hospital staff efficiency by enabling streamlined work flows and multitasking. In addition to enhanced brightness levels, this monitor provides healthcare professionals with wide viewing angles, minimal color shift and accurate images. The monitor is Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM)-compliant, which means that grayscale tones are corrected to maintain image accuracy. Finely calibrated to ensure consistency across multiple devices, the monitor is equipped with backlight stabilization technology to guarantee stable luminance levels. Dynamic Sync Mode reduces input lag, while Flicker Safe and Reader Mode settings help reduce eye strain experienced by doctors and nurses working long shifts.

The 27-inch LG 8MP Surgical Monitor was developed for a wide range of uses in the operating theater. In particular, surgeons who favor minimally invasive surgical techniques will benefit greatly as they make precise observations while viewing LG's wide and highly accurate monitor. The clarity of LG's 8MP UHD panel helps doctors perform technically complex procedures, and the monitor's IPS technology enables multiple medical professionals to view the monitor from different angles with minimal color shift. With brightness levels of up to 800 nits, LG's surgical monitor is ideally suited for bright operating rooms. This monitor covers over 99 percent of the RGB color space with additional space dedicated to the deep red spectrum, enabling doctors to more easily distinguish different types of tissue and blood vessels.

In today's hospitals, medical technology that is portable, lightweight and durable is key to providing outstanding patient care. Previewed at RSNA 2016, the LG DXD (digitalized X-ray detector) produces high quality radiography images within seconds using its 16-bit image processing capabilities and a pixel pitch range as small as 127 micrometers, producing super-high-resolution images for radiographers and radiologists to quickly and accurately identify health issues. A magnesium and carbon fiber body make the LG DXD well-suited to serve patients in a range of medical settings, and the IP41 rating for water and dust resistance helps assure optimal performance even when this DXD comes in contact with powders or liquids. The LG DXD is planned for sale in the second half of 2017.
