October 23, 2012 – Sony Electronics’ Medical Systems Division is announcing the availability of its full line of diagnostic medical imaging monitors for radiology. The displays are 510(k) cleared for use in general review of images from every modality including CR/DR, CT, MRI and full-field digital mammography (FFDM) studies. With these new monitors, Sony is further expanding its footprint in radiology adding to its already long list of technology offerings including recording devices, printers, LCD displays and other essential equipment for medical applications.
The Sony LMD-DM series of high-luminance, high-contrast medical displays offers well-defined images for critical diagnoses through Independent Sub-Pixel Drive (ISD) technology.

The unique ISD technology, which brings an even higher resolution output to the radiology market, ensures users are equipped for the future as imaging technology modalities continue to advance their systems with greater outputs. The new line of radiology monitors includes the following:
· 5 MP Diagnostic Display for Full-Field Digital Mammography
· 3 MP Color Display
· 3 MP Grayscale Display
· 2 MP Color Display
· 2 MP Grayscale Display
“Now radiology users can experience and benefit from the breakthrough innovation in medical display technology that Sony has been successfully delivering to other areas of healthcare, including surgery,” said Lida D’Ambrosio, marketing manager for Sony Electronics’, medical systems division. “This full line of new monitors further expands Sony’s footprint in radiology, giving the market a full range of high quality radiology displays from Sony that help enhance visualization.”
All Sony displays are designed specifically for radiology review and are loaded with a high-luminance, high-contrast LCD panel that can simultaneously display 1,024 shades of gray and deliver accurate color reproduction. They deliver color or grayscale results, can be used in portrait and landscape modes, and are fully DICOM GSDF Part 14 conformant.
