Paper Abstract

Video systems are playing an ever increasing and more important role in diagnostic imaging. However, very little emphasis is being placed on the proper specification, evaluation, set-up or quality control of such systems. Even more disconcerting is the fact that the majority of video systems in use in diagnostic imaging do not conform to video standards making interchangeability of components and the evaluation of video signals difficult, if not impossible. The basics of video imaging systems will be discussed and video standards will be outlined. The basics of quality control of video components and display devices will be presented, while pointing out problems and pitfalls associated with testing these systems. In addition, some suggested acceptance limits will be provided.
