New 12MP Multi-modality Diagnostic Display

By News Release


LG Business Solutions USA has introduced a 12 megapixel (MP), multi-modality, medical-grade 31-inch diagnostic monitor. The 31HN713D also meets parameters set by the American College of Radiology for image quality in digital and 3D mammography.

According to the company, the new model is optimized for breast imaging, with an ultrafine 4200x2800 IPS panel capable of up to 1080cd/m2 of brightness. In addition, its 31-inch screen size and 12MP resolution allow the monitor to take the place of two 5MP medical monitors commonly used for diagnostic mammography. LG’s IPS technology supports wide viewing angles, helping to ensure more accurate viewing of multiple images laid out on the same monitor.

“More and more, radiologists and tele-radiologists working remotely have embraced the high performance and cost-effectiveness of LG medical monitors to do their jobs more efficiently,” said Stephen K. Hu, head of medical monitors at LG Business Solutions USA. “With this new model, they have a diagnostic monitor capable of even the most challenging studies, plus features to help maximize their productivity. Its multimodality capabilities allow physicians to read studies from all modalities (Mammography, CR, DR, CT, MR, Ultrasound, etc.) making it a perfect choice for use in healthcare facilities and home offices alike.”

The FDA 510(k)-certified and DICOM-compliant LG 31HN713D diagnostic monitor comes with an integrated front sensor for automated self-calibration to ensure accurate, consistent imagery without requiring additional calibration equipment. It also has a built-in presence sensor that turns off the display when not being used, as well as an auto-luminance sensor to optimize screen brightness for ambient lighting conditions.

The new monitor features a pair of special diagnostic modes. The Focus View mode allows radiologists to review sections of a medical image by adjusting brightness and grayscale tones in the area of focus while darkening the rest of the screen. The Pathology mode emulates the level of detail and color viewable under a microscope for diagnoses. The LG 31HN713D also includes built-in down and wall lighting to help improve contrast and better illuminate radiologists’ work surfaces when viewing images in dark spaces.
