Abstract
We have developed a prototype display console with which we can investigate issues related to the display of medical images. Our system is not a clinical tool, but rather a research tool that allows us to study how radiologists carry out the image reading procedure. For this study we used chest CT scans which are made up of 22 to 34 scan slices. We were able to simultaneously display up to 32 scan slices at two different intensity windows, i.e. 64 images on one screen. We used two more screens as working screens where the radiologist could display four or sixteen images per screen. Our goal was to determine how the radiologists use the mutlti-image, multiple screen format. The results of our study showed that the radiologists use different strategies in viewing images, and that a display system must allow for those variations. The display of a complete image set, even though the images were shown at much less than full-sampling, was very useful as an overview of the patient study. Simultaneous display of images at different intensity windows was also very useful. The slow times (20 secs) for access to images was a drawback of our system.
