LG Electronics (Seoul, South Korea) will be showcasing its expanded lineup of medical imaging devices at MEDICA 2017, the world’s largest medical trade fair taking place in Düsseldorf, Germany from November 13 to 16, 2017.

At Medica 2017, LG will present its new 3MP Diagnostic Monitor (model 21HK512D) and a 1.3MP Clinical Review Monitor (model 19HK312C). The LG 21HK512D is a 21.3-inch, 3MP (1536 x 2048) Diagnostic Monitor that is capable of impressive brightness levels and has a built-in calibrator to check which colors need to be adjusted and fix the inaccurate colors in order to ensure that MRI and CT scans are shown clearly. LG’s new 1.3MP (1280 x 1024) Clinical Review Monitor features a 19-inch, 5:4 ratio IPS screen that can connect to existing hospital equipment. Both the monitors are Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) compliant Part 14, which means that grayscale tones are corrected to maintain image accuracy and consistency over time.

LG’s monitors are equipped with backlight stabilization technology to guarantee stable luminance levels and are finely calibrated to ensure consistency across multiple devices. Its Dynamic Sync Mode reduces input lag while Flicker Safe and Reader Mode settings help reduce eye strain experienced by doctors when working long shifts. The use of advanced IPS technology makes it possible for medical professionals to view the monitors from different angles with minimal color distortion. LG’s medical monitors are water and dust resistant, ensuring that they continue to function flawlessly in the presence of moisture, fluids, powders or any of the many environmental challenges encountered in today’s hospitals.

At this year’s MEDICA, LG will exhibit its complete range of medical imaging devices in a variety of scenarios, including a consultation room, an operating table and a radiography room.

“We are aggressively expanding our product offerings in the medical field with the aim to become a leader in high-quality medical monitors worldwide,” said Jang Ik-hwan, vice president of LG Electronics’ IT Business Division. “We are optimistic LG’s reputation in the premium display category will carry over to make a positive impact in people’s lives. LG’s long history of developing premium displays will give medical professionals the peace-of-mind that what they are seeing on-screen is extremely accurate.”
