Multisync CRT for Color Correction?

I'm looking into getting a broadcast monitor for color correction. Can a Multisync 6fgp CRT monitor be used for color correction? I don't know much about broadcast monitors, but the Multicsync seems to have many of the same connectors in the back.

Thanks

In a broadcast monitor, you would want:
A- Composite signal in (NTSC and/or PAL)
B- Y/C or component in

I doubt that CRT computer monitor will do that... although I might be wrong. If the computer has 5 BNC connectors on the back, that doesn't necessarily indicate A or B. Sometimes they just take a computer monitor signal over those 5 BNCs.
