In medical imaging, it is important that images are displayed consistently over time – but also across displays. Medical-grade displays are equipped with built-in stabilization and some even have patented front-screen sensors.
In this way, they guarantee consistent image brightness and clarity – not only throughout the display’s entire lifespan, but on all other medical-grade displays that are connected to the enterprise network. This means colleagues in different locations see identical images as well, which greatly facilitates accurate remote collaboration.
Less 'noise', more consistency
LCD panels suffer from inherent luminance uniformity imperfections, which cause arbitrary patterns or ‘noise’. This ‘noise’ negatively impacts reading efficiency. Some LCD displays can suffer from 25-30% non-uniformity.
Many medical-grade systems tackle this issue via integrated uniformity technologies. These provide consistent brightness and improved grayscale presentation, ensuring better visualization of subtle radiographic abnormalities.
Different perspectives, consistent conclusions
Medical workstations often combine multiple monitors. This means viewing inevitably happens from different angles. When looking at medical images, you need a luminance ratio of at least 350 cd/m². But not all displays can guarantee that luminance ratio when images are viewed off center. This can impact interpretation.
Medical displays should be 100% ACR compliant across the screen, preserving a minimum of 350 cd/m², a high contrast ratio and excellent color values under different viewing angles.
But there's more...
In addition to the fact that medical grade displays increase your accuracy, they are also equipped with specific tools that allow you to boost your productivity and increase your efficiency.
