High Resolution Calibrated Medical Displays on the Cheap with PerfectLum Software

06/02/2012, Wilmington, DE, USA – QUBYX Software Technologies Inc., an expert in color calibration and medical imaging fields, has announced that their bundle of the premium DELL UltraSharp U3011 display and PerfectLum 3.0 DICOM calibration software has received the Food & Drug Administration 510(k) market clearance for diagnostic reading, which allows the company to position the device as a professional medical one.

“We are very pleased to have now not only European CE Mark for PerfectLum software, but also the FDA clearance for the DELL 4 MP display and PerfectLum bundle,” says Marc Leppla, Director of QUBYX. “The FDA clearance allows the bundle to officially enter the US and international markets as a medical device. Moreover, it will ensure confidence in quality and safety of the device for healthcare facilities, relying on FDA 510(k) clearance when purchasing medical monitors.”

The DELL UltraSharp U3011 is a 30-inch 4MP display with a resolution of 2560×1600 pixels, a typical brightness of 370 cd/m2 and IPS (in-plane switching) panel technology. The display is designed to provide more consistent colors, a brighter picture from different angles and brilliance across the color spectrum. It allows the user to experience lifelike visuals at 117% (CIE 1976) typical color gamut and to see more detail in grayscales. Multiple connectivity thanks to DisplayPort, two HDMI 1.3 and two DVI-D connectors is also one of UltraSharp U3011 remarkable features.

The medical monitor calibration application PerfectLum 3.0 allows to use this high quality display for viewing of medical images and diagnostics. The UltraSharp monitor in bundle with PerfectLum is delivered calibrated to DICOM GSDF part 14 standard. Moreover, the medical display QA tool allows performing not only DICOM, Gamma and CIE L* hardware re-calibrations using the 10 Bit LUT (Look Up Table) of the display, but also DICOM, AAPM TG18, DIN 6868-157, DIN 6868-57 conformance tests, verification of white level, luminance level and display uniformity. Such PerfectLum features as calibration of multiple displays, connected to one workstation, and remote display management system for maintenance of multiple workstations from one location will be beneficial to networks of healthcare facilities and telemedicine.

The FDA certification for the DELL UltraSharp-QUBYX PerfectLum bundle proves the companies’ commitment to medical imaging field. It also provides evidence of the concept, that commercial displays can be calibrated to meet the highest demands of medical industry and successfully utilized for diagnostics and reviewing of medical images.

With PerfectLum 3.x medical display calibration software you can calibrate any premium LCD display to the highest medical standards. PerfectLum Suite medical monitor quality control tool not only does the calibration, but also performs quality assurance tests to ensure your display conforms to the most demanding standards of the industry.

The resulting image quality matches and can even surpass that of the most overpriced displays on the market.


PerfectLum Suite medical monitor calibration and QA application is compatible with any graphics card, including 13 bit Matrox and 10 bit RealVision medical graphic boards.


If you already have a measuring device, you probably won’t need another. PerfectLum Suite medical monitor qualtity control tool works with nearly every model ever made.


On VESA DDC/CI-compliant displays, PerfectLum Suite automatically adjusts contrast and brightness over the DDC/CI channel so you don’t have to go into the display’s OSD menu.

The display is automatically adjusted to a desired white level and optimum color temperature to ensure fast and easy calibration process as well as high quality results.


Color calibration is performed not only on white but all gray levels. For example, white will be at 6500 Kelvin, but so will gray 120/120/120 and 64/64/64. This ensures that the observer sees the gray levels correctly, as the aspect of an image is infuenced by colors in the grays, not just luminance.

Medical monitor calibration and QA application PerfectLum

In the process of calibration an ICC profile is generated to save characteristics of colors for the given device.


PerfectLum medical monitor calibration application calibrates to international standards including NEMA DICOM part 14 GSDF, AAPM TG18, DIN 6868-57, DIN 6868-157, JESRA X-0093 and IEC 62563-1. PerfectLum Suite medical display QA software not only calibrates a display, but also performs acceptance and constancy tests to verify that the display conforms with these standards.


Rather than saving on your computer’s graphics card, LUT (Look Up Table) calibration is saved inside any supported display.


For example, if your display is 30% off in luminance from the center, PerfectLum can correct that down to 3%. A display with a nonuniformity of more than 15% can no longer be used in Germany, as it would not meet the German DIN 6868-57 standard. Calibrate with PerfectLum and simply continue using the display.
