Introducing LG’s DICOM compliant medical imaging monitors

In addition to being the largest provider of hospital patient room TVs in the United States, LG is now offering medical imaging monitors. The advanced monitors are designed to improve the accuracy, quality and efficiency of diagnostic procedures in the healthcare field.

The new medical imaging monitors leverage LG’s years of industry leadership and expertise in premium flat-panel display technologies. To ensure accurate and consistent shading for medical images, every grayscale tone is measured and set in compliance with DICOM part 14 guidelines.*

LG’s 8MP Clinical Review Monitor is a 27-inch IPS monitor with 3840 x 2160 resolution designed to increase hospital staff efficiency by enabling streamlined workflows and multitasking. The monitor offers enhanced brightness levels, wide viewing angles, minimal color shift and accurate images. It is also equipped with backlight stabilization technology to ensure stable luminance levels. Dynamic Sync Mode reduces input lag, while Flicker Safe and Reader Mode settings help minimize eye strain – great news for doctors and nurses working long shifts.

LG’s 27-inch 8MP Surgical Monitor was developed for a wide range of uses in the operating theater. The unparalleled clarity of LG’s 8MP UHD panel helps doctors perform technically complex procedures and IPS technology enables multiple professionals to view the monitor from different angles with minimal color shift. With a high brightness of 800 cd/m2, the monitor is ideally suited for bright operating rooms. The front panel is IP35 rated and the back panel is IP32 rated, protecting against dust, water or fluids that may contact it during a surgery.

DICOM — Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine — is the international standard for medical images and related information (ISO 12052). It defines the formats for medical images that can be exchanged with the data and quality necessary for clinical use. DICOM is implemented in almost every radiology, cardiology imaging, and radiotherapy device (X-ray, CT, MRI, ultrasound, etc.), and increasingly in devices in other medical domains such as ophthalmology and dentistry. From the emergency department, to cardiac stress testing, to breast cancer detection, DICOM is the standard that makes medical imaging work — for doctors and for patients.

*According to DICOM part 14 guidelines published by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR).
