Paper Abstract

The SMPTE test pattern has proven to be an effective tool for calibrating and monitoring the image display devices of a magnetic resonance (MR) imaging system. Linearity and size adjustments of video displays are particulary important because of the proximity of magnetic fields. The 5% and 95% intensity levels of the test pattern are extremely useful for adjusting the grayscale of both video displays and multiformat hardcopy devices. An appropriate sequence of operations for adjusting and monitoring image display devices is recommended.
