Projector Designed for CT, MR Imaging Education

Canon's REALiS SX7 Mark II D Multimedia Projector.

March 29, 2010 - In the medical-education field viewing monochrome digital X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exams with accurate color and precise detail is of the highest importance.

A recently released projector is engineered to display medical imaging exams with precision in color and image quality. The monitors, the REALiS SX7 Mark II D, has a DICOM Simulation Mode that simulates the results of devices compliant with the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) Part 14 standardized display function for display of grayscale images. Because calibrating in a classroom, conference room or any other environment can be challenging when ambient light varies, this mode allows users to calibrate directly on the projector using 21 different levels of gamma adjustments. While not cleared or approved for medical diagnosis, this projector is designed for medical educators who need to display large images to properly train students and conduct lectures/conferences.
 
The SX7 Mark II D offers Canon’s LCOS technology combined with the projectors native SXGA+ high resolution (1,400 x 1,050) and 4,000 lumens of brightness. Small text can appear as small as 7 point.

Additional features on the project include:
 
- Canon 1.7x Powered Zoom/Focus Lens for ease of projector placement;
- DVI-I Terminal for digital connection for high-quality images and video;
- Quiet Operation produces only 31db (in Quiet Mode); and
- support of both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces.

Collage depicts broad applications in machine learning or deep learning (DL) that can be applied to advanced medical imaging technologies. Size of the liver and its fat fraction — 22 percent — (top middle in collage) can be quantified automatically using an algorithm developed by Dr. Albert Hsiao and his team at the University of California San Diego. This and other information that might be mined by DL algorithms from CT and MR images could help personalize patients’ treatment. Collage provided by Albert Hsiao
