Historically, image quality issues involved with matching the `look' of an image on a modality monitor, such as CT, MRI, or Ultrasound, with the `look' at either a remote viewing station or on printed film could be dealt with by adjusting the individual components on an ad hoc basis. As medical imaging moves away from point to point connections and into a networked environment, a standard is needed that insures image integrity with respect to tonescale and guarantees that the look of the image at various imaging systems and printers can match the original modality monitor look. A standard way of describing image presentation using look- up tables is proposed. This provides a `standard' network that each manufacturer can connect to and provides consistent image quality with respect to tonescale. This method expands upon the current ACR-NEMA implementation, which already provides some information that allows for consistent image presentation.
