Paper Abstract

Main goal of this study is to compare the performances of a full line of LCD diagnostic display systems, in terms of white point luminance, accuracy and stability over time, GSDF conformance and luminance uniformity, and to test a web-based service for remote calibration and QA in a large hospital. The display systems under test included 3MP and 5MP grayscale, 2MP and 6MP color and 5MP mammography LCD monitors, all manufactured by BARCO, for a total amount of 119 units. Measured performances were all within the acceptance range proposed by the major international protocols and show a very good stability in time, except for a few cases. The web-based service for remote QA and calibration resulted well suited for the management of a large scale medical facility, where high performance displays are in use and time saving QA programs and a central QA policy are both needed.
