  • (1888PressRelease) February 09, 2012 - Wilmington, DE, USA - The Valley Hospital, the not-for-profit patient care center and a part of Valley Health System, is upgrading their installation of DICOM calibration software PerfectLum by QUBYX to the new version 3.0. PerfectLum 3.0 Suite includes quality assurance features, such as AAPM TG18 quality assurance tests, that are crucial for maintaining diagnostic displays quality within the requirements of the standard.

    The Valley Hospital has been using version 2 of PerfectLum since 2009 to perform DICOM calibration of monitors, utilized for diagnostics and reviewing of medical images. Now that quality assurance features have been added to the software, the upgrade will allow The Valley Health practitioners to perform acceptance and constancy tests to the key medical standard in the US - American Association of Physicists in Medicine Task Group 18.

    "For the last several years, our radiology group has been pleased to use PerfectLum exclusively for DICOM calibration of our home workstation consumer-grade monitors, optimizing their performance in high volume primary interpretation of CT/MRI scans as well as plain radiographs," says Dr. Elliot J. Lerner, Neuroradiology & Imaging Informatics specialist at The Valley Hospital. "The PerfectLum software has been steadily updated, and calibration with the new version 3 is even more powerful and fast, with consistent DDC-CI support of even legacy monitor panels, as well as robust but easily understood DICOM conformance reports. The developer has been incredibly responsive to feedback and additional feature requests."

    The Valley Hospital has been recognised as a high quality healthcare provider, earning such awards as the Gold Seal of Approval from The Joint Commission.
