October 15, 2007 - Medical Displays for Less recently announced that the company is now shipping Totoku's newest medical 5MP LCD display for mammography, ME551i2, reportedly the first FDA cleared 5MP display with a list price under $10,000.
The Totoku ME551i2 is FDA 510(k) cleared as a "digital mammography LCD display," with a 21.3-inch, 5 MP, DICOM-calibrated diagnostic display supporting an 11.9-bit grayscale palette and 750cd/m2 brightness. The ME551i2 can reportedly simultaneously display 2048 shades of gray (11-bit). Calibration software is included that contains quality control procedures including those defined by the AAPM's Task Group 18.
Totoku's 5MP display reportedly goes through extra quality assurance because it is re-branded to major medical OEM's for use in their mammography workstations. According to the company, each panel must meet stringent defect pixel specifications that are the highest standards in the industry. The display is compatible with all PACS and digital mammography environments.
