The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted 510(k) clearance to NEC Display Solutions' 3-megapixel medical diagnostic display, designed for viewing digital mammography images for diagnosis.

The new 21.3-inch display, MultiSync MD211G3, features a front sensor to maintain a calibrated brightness and an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the display’s brightness based on existing lighting conditions.

The display, which is factory calibrated to the DICOM grayscale function for luminance, is designed for medical imaging and picture archiving and communication system (PACS) for use in hospitals, doctor offices, urgent care centers and other healthcare facilities.

In addition, the display incorporating DVI-D and DisplayPort connectors for video and two-port USB hub enable connectivity for any type of workstation.

NEC Display Solutions professional desktop and medical displays product manager Art Marshall said MultiSync MD Series displays are designed specifically for use in healthcare applications where reliable screen uniformity is required to be productive in diagnostic imaging and mammography.

"The FDA clearance of the MD211G3 is yet another tribute to NEC’s dedication in advancing the medical display market," Marshall added.
