Siemens Creates 5MP Monochrome Display for Mammography

September 4, 2007 - Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D) has developed SMD 21510 D, a 21-inch monochrome display suited for mammography diagnosis and PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication Systems) applications.

The new 5MP display supports a "Fully Automated Stability" system that reportedly ensures reliably verified grayscale response and continuous luminance levels. The new medical display can be used with a number of standard or high-performance graphic cards of the latest generation.

The high-resolution monitor has 2048-by-2560 pixels and a luminance of 750 cd/m2 (candelas per square meter). Two independently functional sensors are used to continuously monitor the luminance and grayscale levels. The "Integrated Stability Sensor" (ISS) monitors the backlight at the center of the display while the "Integrated Consistency Sensor" (ICS) reviews performance on the front right corner without obstructing the user's view of the display. This redundant monitoring system aims to ensure consistently high image quality and conformance with medical imaging standards such as DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). The blue tinted CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) backlight is optimally suited to the human visual system, which is especially sensitive to light in this color range.

Artificial Intelligence Provides Faster, Clearer MRI Scans

A new artificial-intelligence-based approach to image reconstruction, called AUTOMAP, yields higher quality images from less data, reducing radiation doses for CT and PET and shortening scan times for MRI.
