Quality control systems

All medical monitors must undergo periodic inspection for both image reproduction compliance with the DICOM Part 14 standard and uniformity of screen backlighting. According to the guidelines of the Ministry of Health Regulation, such inspections must be carried out at least once every 12 months. To this end, descriptive monitors can optionally be bundled with the monitor manufacturer's calibration software, which, using internal sensors or purchased external sensors, can perform periodic inspections.

We would like to draw your special attention to the offer of monitors in which dedicated sensors are installed that continuously monitor the parameters of the screen and correct them. These processes run automatically, guaranteeing the best possible reproduction of the diagnosed image. Thanks to them, it is also possible to control them remotely by hospital/clinic authorities authorized to do so. This significantly reduces the personal costs associated with their operation. It also provides an opportunity to predict the need to replace monitors due to the natural aging process of the components, and thus avoid diagnostic downtime, during the period of purchasing and replacing equipment.

Requirements for the use of monitors included in the Regulation of the Minister of Health of 18-02-2011. (consolidated text of the Journal of Laws of 2017, item 884) on the conditions for the safe use of ionizing radiation for all types of medical exposure:
