NEC Display Solutions Receives FDA 510(k) Approval of 5-Megapixel Grayscale Monitor for Use in Digital Mammography Applications


12/2/2008 6:34:31 AM

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, today announced mammography usage clearance from the Food & Drug Administration for the 20-inch, 5-megapixel MultiSync MD205MG flat-panel monitor.

The MD205MG can be seen at the 2008 Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA’s) Annual Meeting and Conference today through December 5 in NEC’s booth (No. 4270) at the McCormick Place in Chicago, Ill.

“The FDA digital mammography approval is a clear demonstration of NEC’s commitment to the medical industry,” said Stan Swiderski, Product Manager of medical and professional displays for NEC Display Solutions. “The MD205MG provides diagnostic professionals with the advanced tools they need to accurately diagnose and consistently review detailed images.”

The 5-megapixel monitor is part of the MultiSync MD Series, a family of medical-grade LCDs designed specifically for radiology, Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), MRI, CT and 3D applications.

With a 2560 x 2048 native resolution, the MD205MG display features advanced in-plane switching (IPS) LCD technology, which offers powerful details of medical images and a possible 3,061 shades of gray. It also includes a backlight sensor, DICOM calibration and a contrast ratio of 600:1.

In addition, GammaComp™ MD software, supplied with the MD monitor system, supports different sensors for calibration. These include both external colorimeters for direct measurement at the surface and spot luminance meters for distance measurement.

The 5-megapixel display also is Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS) compliant, containing fully disposable plastics, no hazardous materials such as hex-chrome, cadmium, PBDE and PBB, and limited amounts of mercury and lead.

The NEC MD205MG display is available for shipment at an estimated street price of $8,999 and includes a 5-year limited warranty with Advanced Overnight Exchange service, one of the best standard warranties in the industry.
