LG Unveils New Diagnostic Monitor, Digital X-ray Detectors at RSNA 2018

November 28, 2018 — LG Electronics is expanding its U.S. medical imaging portfolio with a new high-performance 21-inch diagnostic monitor and two new U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved digital X-ray detectors. Unveiled at the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 25-30 in Chicago, these advanced new devices join LG’s portfolio of medical monitors designed to sharpen visuals while maximizing efficiency for elevated professional care.

LG’s medical imaging product line is designed to meet a variety of hospital needs, including consultation rooms, the operating table and radiography labs. Features such as the viewing angle of LG’s advanced IPS technology make it possible for multiple medical professionals to view the monitors from different angles with minimal color distortion and more precise imagery.

The company also has two new digital X-ray detectors (DXDs) that were just approved by the FDA. Available now, they come in 14-by-17-inch and 17-by-17-inch display sizes. Designed to replace film-based X-rays, the LG DXDs are a lightweight, mobile and reliable medical solution for healthcare facilities. These displays offer greater patient safety by emitting a lower dose of radiation than traditional film X-ray detectors.

The new diagnostic monitor and DXDs join LG’s portfolio of medical displays, including surgical and clinical monitors that provide hospitals with total display solutions for patient care. For instance, LG’s 27-inch 4K and Full HD surgical monitors are designed to deliver precise imagery in the operating room.

LG’s 27-inch 8MP clinical review monitor features DICOM out-of-the-box calibration to ACR-AAPM-SIIM secondary review brightness guidelines, plus a backlight sensor that maintains DICOM-calibrated brightness for three years. Equipped with 5:4 aspect ratio, LG’s 19-inch LG clinical review monitor is designed for cardiology and other medical applications that require a medical safety-approved monitor with analog and digital video inputs.

At RSNA 2018, LG also is demonstrating its 24-inch all-in-one Thin Client cloud computing solution that combines increased security and ease of data maintenance for waiting rooms and patient care facilities.
