This paper presents an approach to Noise Power Spectrum (NPS) assessment of color medical displays without using an expensive imaging colorimeter. The R, G and B color uniform patterns were shown on the display under study and the images were taken using a high resolution monochromatic camera. A colorimeter was used to calibrate the camera images. Synthetic intensity images were formed by the weighted sum of the R, G, B and the dark screen images. Finally the NPS analysis was conducted on the synthetic images. The proposed method replaces an expensive imaging colorimeter for NPS evaluation, which also suggests a potential solution for routine color medical display QA/QC in the clinical area, especially when imaging of display devices is desired.
