Medical imaging display panel from Siemens
9 November 2006 Deutsch
Siemens has introduced a new flat-panel display for medical imaging. With up
to 400 candelas/m2, the new 3-megapixel SCD 21310 flat panel
display is especially bright and high-contrast.
The high-resolution 21" display from Siemens Automation and Drives (A&D)
is suitable for colour displays as well as for hybrid applications with
colour and gray-scale displays. The display gives constant luminance over a
typical service life of 10,000 hours, corresponding to approximately five
years. The backlighting of the new display has a service life of 50,000
monitor is pre-calibrated at the factory and has fully automated stability
in compliance with the Dicom standard.
Constant luminance is ensured by the additional Integrated Stability
System (ISS) by means of a photo sensor in the centre of the backlighting.
This sensor is automatically calibrated when the display is calibrated. With
five presets, practice-oriented look-up tables, the display can be adapted
to local lighting conditions and then automatically calibrated.
The stored calibration data simplify installation and maintenance: Even
if the graphics card or the work computer is replaced, perhaps for
upgrading, the graphics settings are retained and there is no need to
re-calibrate the monitor. Users can customize display settings and carry out
automated quality tests using the SMfit ACT Basics parameterization software
