Visual Evaluation of Medical Images
Using an Monochrome Liquid Crystal Display

‚xoko ‚`raki


With the great advances in technology over the past few years, a trend towards the use
of ultra-high luminant LCDs is on the increase. However, there is a concern that the physical properties (luminance, etc.) is not understood well enough by physicians to take advantage of the improved luminance to assist with their diagnosis. With displays of differing luminosity being implemented in various clinics, we don't see enough researches about relationship between diagnosability and display luminance.


Using ROC analysis, we are presently evaluating whether the advanced features of newer displays exerts an influence on the diagnosability.
