In terms of qualitative standards, binding guidelines for image reproduction devices in ophthalmology have not yet been established. Nevertheless, with the progressive development of modern imaging procedures, particularly in optical coherence tomography (OCT), considerations of minimum requirements for diagnostic monitors are a growing concern.
For example, indications for the macula and the optic nerve, including glaucoma, can be diagnosed using OCT technology at a resolution that previously could not be achieved. The image reproduction device, or monitor, is becoming increasingly important, with a particular emphasis on the reproduction curve in the form of a so-called DICOM® curve, which has already been used in diagnostic radiology. It helps differentiate the most subtle greyscales and JNDs (just noticeable differences).
