In the medical setting, commercial LCD displays simply do not meet the requirements for daily, routine use. Medical LCD displays, having passed a series of rigorous tests, are the only way to ensure patient information is adequately represented on screen. Here are some of the major differences between medical LCD displays and mass commercial LCD displays.
Governing Body Requirements
While commercial LCD displays can market themselves as they see fit, medical LCD displays are held to multiple regulatory bodies that govern how they are presented. A typical medical LCD display will meet standards set by the FDA, and meet UL/EC60601-1 guidelines. These wide ranging rules ensure that every Medical LCD display by Tangent has an antimicrobial casing, extremely low radiation output, and does not leak excess electrical current.
High Image Stability
Constant image brightness and representation is key to accurate readouts on any medical LCD display. A typical commercial LCD display can see a fall of up to 40% in luminance in a mere two years. For the medical setting, where displays require superb image representation for x-ray images, this simply won’t do. Reproducing an image from one day to the next with extreme accuracy is a must, and Medical LCD displays by Tangent are designed with this fact in mind. Medical LCD displays curb this fall with luminance stabilizers, which slow down luminance degradation, ensuring image accuracy over the course of the display’s lifetime.
Another way to stop luminance degradation in medical LCD displays is with a DICOM system. a DICOM system system acts as an image stabilizer, and is often integrated directly into the screen of a medical LCD display. These systems compute calculations related to how an image should be displayed, and accurately describes the end result to the display to produce an accurate image. Commercial LCD displays forego DICOM support altogether, and can suffer image distortion early in their life. DICOM supported medical LCD displays from Tangent last far beyond their commercial counterparts, with precise imaging throughout their lifespan.
Medical LCD Displays Win Out
That’s a fact. Commercial LCD displays simply do not have the image stabilization, Dicom support, or government approval to be used in the medical setting. Medical LCD displays from Tangent beat out commercial LCD displays in every category, and are a perfect fit for any medical setting.
