Abstract

When designing a new medical display, decisions, e.g., on the choice of the panel or the back light, must be taken. First decisions are mostly made based on physical measurements and not really on clinical or perceived quality. To prove clinical quality of the display costly time-consuming psycho-physical/clinical tests are performed. To solve these issues, a medical virtual image chain (MEVIC) was developed from image capture part until the visualization for facilitating medical display design. The chain is composed of three main modules: a virtual image part, a virtual medical display and a virtual specialist. The complete chain is described with a main focus on medical display simulation with many possible applications.
