Abstract: Calibration of medical displays is important in order for images to be displayed consistently. A consistent appearance ensures that all images are always perceived in the same way regardless of display device, location and time. Since a true consistent appearance requires displays with equal luminance ranges, which is neither practically achievable nor desirable, the aim of a calibration is rather to obtain a consistent distribution of perceived contrast throughout the gray-scale. An inconsisten... more
