NEC Display MD211G5 Diagnostic Display Receives FDA Clearance for Use in Tomosynthesis

NEC Monitor Serves High Resolution Medical Imaging and Mammography
Modalities

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NEC
Display Solutions of America
, a leading provider of commercial LCD
display and projector solutions, today announced Food and Drug
Administration clearance of its MultiSync® MD211G5
medical-grade monitor for use in tomosynthesis applications and full
field digital mammography (FFDM). The 21-inch NEC display is built for
the displaying and viewing of digital images for diagnosis by trained
physicians.

The five-megapixel, grayscale monitor, which also has been cleared for
standard mammography, offers out-of-the-box factory DICOM calibration
and uniformity control for consistent imaging across the entire screen.
Its IPS panel features a 1200:1 contrast ratio and 500 cd/m2
of calibrated brightness. The MD211G5 display also comes with
GammaCompMD QA software for managing conformance to the AAPM TG-18
standard.

“We are honored to receive FDA clearance for use in tomosynthesis and
FFDM in addition to the earlier FDA 510(k) clearance for mammography,”
said Art Marshall, Senior Product Manager for Professional Desktop and
Medical Displays at NEC Display. “This demonstrates NEC’s commitment to
providing the right products for every modality our customers require.”

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), which combines tomography with
digital radiography, renders breast images in 3D and accounts for more
than one-half of the breast-imaging market, according to a report
by iData Research.

A separate study
by the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine
published in JAMA Oncology found that initial DBT screening led
to, among other things, fewer patients called back for sometimes
unnecessary imaging.
