BS EN 62563-1:2010+A1:2016

Medical electrical equipment. Medical image display systems. Evaluation methods

Status : Current, Work in hand   Published : May 2010



What is this standard about?

It provides ways to test image display systems used in medical electrical equipment and in medical electrical systems for diagnostic imaging. 

It applies to medical image display systems which can display image information on greyscale and colour image display systems. These are used to interpret medical images for clinical diagnosis or for viewing medical images for other medical purposes that have specific requirements in terms of image quality.

Who is this standard for?

Image display system manufacturers, installers and users.

Why should you use this standard? 

It supplies 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 outside the scope of this standard.

Using this document, two types of testing can be carried out. An acceptance test is carried out after a new image display system has been installed or major modifications have been made to an existing system. Also, since an image display system may degrade over time, the constancy test is carried out by the user in a periodic cycle to verify that the performance is maintained for the intended use. 

What’s changed since the last update?

This first amendment to Part 1 of BS EN 62563 supersedes the 2010 version of the standard which will be withdrawn on 28 April 2019. It implements IEC amendment 1:2016 with CENELEC endorsement A1:2016.
