Paper Abstract

Recent standards and upcoming guidelines are beginning to address the issue of image display quality, and image representation consistency. The DICOM standard has recently been extended to address the consistency of the grayscale presentation of images (DICOM part 14, Grayscale Standard Display Function), and it also addresses the consistency of presentation of associated information (text, graphics, annotation, zoom, rotation) with the recently approved addition of the Softcopy Presentation State, i.e. DICOM Supplement 33). These two new standards provide image consistency between viewing stations and printers independent of the manufacturer, brand and/or type. These services have been demonstrated at ECR, RSNA, and are also part of the continuing IHE demonstrations. In addition to the DICOM standards, work is being done by AAPM Task Group 18 to address the issue of Quality Control and Quality Assurance for electronic displays.
