Abstract
This paper discusses display parameters such as display function, contrast, dynamic range, veiling glare and spatial resolution of displays useful in digital radiology. After a review of the traditional display in diagnostic radiology, namely the film-lightbox, based on the film-screen combination, the paper concentrates on the Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Flat Panel Display (AM-LCD). The AM-LCD will most likely mature and may become the display of choice in the near future, replacing the Cathode Ray Tube Display (CRT), which is presently the dominating softcopy display. A comparison between pertinent performance characteristics of AM-LCD and CRT demonstrates that spatial resolution (Modulation Transfer Function or MTF) and veiling glare for the AM-LCD are already superior to those of the CRT.
