Quality assurance and calibration in one software

JVCKENWOOD simplifies work with the new QA Medivisor Agent

Acceptance and constancy tests as well as regular calibration of medical displays are among the constantly recurring tasks in healthcare facilities. In Germany, the new DIN 6868-157 standard for acceptance and constancy has given image display system testing a new momentum. But also in other countries radiologists have to guarantee an optimal image quality and reliability of their monitors and displays in terms of patient safety.


JVCKENWOOD has supported its users with the Medivisor Nx for calibration and the QA Medivisor for quality assurance. The new QA Medivisor Agent software now combines all aspects of both solutions. "This enables our customers to perform acceptance and constancy tests in accordance with DIN 6868-157 and other standards," explains Marcel Herrmann, Marketing Manager Medical Imaging at JVCKENWOOD. "This also applies to the calibration of all JVC monitors and previous TOTOKU displays." But the development of the new software was not only based on an adapted range of functions. "The user interface, which was developed from the ground up, simplifies operation for the user. In addition, there are new functions for the i3 displays, such as scheduling the autonomous calibration," Herrmann continues.


One software, all information

The PM Medivisor Cloud serves the quality manager or administrator as a central cockpit for quality assurance. The software continuously collects and analyzes all data on the status of monitors connected throughout the facility, displays them and sends status messages to defined persons. They always got an overview, for example, of the calibration history or the operating hours. The administrator is immediately informed by e-mail about changes in brightness, configuration or resolution. Like all documents, the qa reports can be stored within the cloud solution.


In the near future, the software will utilize the integrated sensors of the i2 and i3 series monitors for constancy testing, so that external measuring devices will no longer be required. In this way, the check can be performed and confirmed remotely. All this reduces the effort for the quality manager considerably and saves him significant time.
