NEC is releasing a new line of medical monitors at RSNA this week in Chicago, featuring an impressive 12-bit grayscale and DICOM calibration.
From the press release:
NEC’s new UA-SFT LCD module technology offers high brightness without compromising contrast or viewing angles, making the image quality outstanding for color or grayscale images. Select units include built-in front sensors for stability, as well as remote assurance of DICOM conformance.
NEC’s new offerings to the MultiSync MD Series include the 21-inch, 2-megapixel MD212MC and the 21-inch, 3-megapixel MD213MC color displays – both with front sensors; and the 21-inch, 3-megapixel MD213MG grayscale display with front sensor.
The MD212MC and MD213MC color displays follow in the footsteps of the highly successful line of medical grayscales from NEC, and join the 30-inch, 4-megapixel MD304MC color display with backlight sensor announced earlier this year.
Common features of the monitors:
DICOM calibration and the X-Light ProTM sensor system for maintaining a consistent image 12-bit lookup table (LUT) for detailed images and grayscale ColorCompTM, which reduces LCD uniformity errors and compensates for differences in color/grayscale and luminance Front or backlight sensors Full medical certifications 5-year limited warranty with overnight exchange service
Also, NEC has announced that it received FDA certification for its 5-megapixel 20-inch monitor:
“The FDA digital mammography approval is a clear demonstration of NEC’s commitment to the medical industry,” said Stan Swiderski, Product Manager of medical and professional displays for NEC Display Solutions. “The MD205MG provides diagnostic professionals with the advanced tools they need to accurately diagnose and consistently review detailed images.”
The 5-megapixel monitor is part of the MultiSync MD Series, a family of medical-grade LCDs designed specifically for radiology, Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), MRI, CT and 3D applications.
With a 2560 x 2048 native resolution, the MD205MG display features advanced in-plane switching (IPS) LCD technology, which offers powerful details of medical images and a possible 3,061 shades of gray. It also includes a backlight sensor, DICOM calibration and a contrast ratio of 600:1.
In addition, GammaCompTM MD software, supplied with the MD monitor system, supports different sensors for calibration. These include both external colorimeters for direct measurement at the surface and spot luminance meters for distance measurement.
The 5-megapixel display also is Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant, containing fully disposable plastics, no hazardous materials such as hex-chrome, cadmium, PBDE and PBB, and limited amounts of mercury and lead.
