IEC 62563-1:2009+A1:2016 describes the evaluation methods for testing medical image display systems. It is directed to practical tests that can be visually evaluated or measured using basic test equipment. More advanced or more quantitative measurements can be
performed on these devices, but these are beyond the scope of this
document. IEC 62563-1:2009 applies to medical image display systems,
which can display monochrome image information in the form of
greyscale values on colour and greyscale image display systems (e.g.
cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors, flat panel displays, projection
system). This standard applies to medical image display systems used
for diagnostic (interpretation of medical images toward rendering
clinical diagnosis) or viewing (viewing medical images for medical
purposes other than for providing a medical interpretation) purposes
and therefore having specific requirements in terms of image
quality. Head mounted image display systems and image display
systems used for confirming positioning and for operation of the
system are not covered by this standard.
This consolidated version consists of the first edition (2009)
and its amendment 1 (2016). Therefore, no need to order amendment in
addition to this publication.
