This paper discusses the issue of calibration for the growing number of electronic displays used in the filmless and electronic radiology departments. It concentrates on CRT and LCD displays as these are the most matured electronic display systems available at this time. It is shown that grayscale calibration is necessary and useful to optimally display the information contained in the various digital images in diagnostic radiology. In addition properties and drawbacks of four prevalent standards for display function have been discussed.
